2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

After 14 months the mileage began to fall and the dealer claims to find no problem. Mileage has never matched what the computer says, off consistently 2 to 5 miles, more lately. I got consistent 46 mpg first 14 months, more on long straight drives, then it fell to 23 mpg for a month, then gradually climbed back up to about 30. Climate control also stopped working efficiently. Mostly I like the car, but will switch to Honda this year as the dealer seems uninterested in the strange drop in mpg.

Favorite Features

Computer screen, controls in middle instead of in front of driver - took getting used to, now I like it.
