The future of driving
By Gazings on
2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
You must drive this car! Crusing around with the engine totally off is a real trip. Sitting at stoplights in total silence is amazing. The ride is very quiet at all times, even on the freeway. Definitely spring for the touch-screen navigation system - worth every penny. Very comfy ride, great view out. Auto climate control is excellent, and the stereo has surprisingly good sound.
"Stealth" - driving the car on pure electric - something the other hybrids cannot do. High-tech powertrain, navigation system, controls and displays.
Dealers typically deliver these cars with severely underinflated tires - results in poor mpg and tire wear. Otherwise, awesome car!
