2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I have owned this car since May 2002 and I absolutely love it. I'm so happy I got it before the big "prius craze" began. I paid $20K for it -- just about have to double that to get one these days. I'm in that mode where I'm ready for a new car, but am not willing to give up the perks of owning this car. My only regret is that I didn't get the GPS system - boy how I wish I had! I'll probably keep this car longer than any other -- my gas mileage varies between 37 and 47 mpg depending on the time of year.
Smooth ride - easy maneuverability - gas mileage - touch screen - up to the moment gas mileage readout - 6 cd changer.
Better drink holders, please! :) Also wish there was some way to avoid accelerated wear on tires. I've had to replace them twice in 2.5 years.
