2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I've owned a 2001 which was in an accident, a
2002 and am now buying a 2004 Prius. The
Prius is wonderful. I get 55+ MPG. My driving
style suits the Prius. I drive mostly on trips of
20 minutes or more at 35-40 miles per hour
with limited traffic stops. Freeway miles are
less at 46mpg. I also get less milage in
winter, 45-50. On the other hand my record
is 64mpg on a tankful (confirmed at pump not
just the computer screen which tends to be off
by a consistant 2mpg). The Prius will not get
the best milage during the first five minutes or
so as it warms up, often only 35. Performance
is good, comfort levels high.
Fuel economy, low emissions, and it is SO
It has been improved in 2004 with even better
mileage, more room and more power, wow.
