2003 Toyota Prius Sedan 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Fun to drive and it is very comfortable and the gas mileage , you can not beat it. I would buy another one for sure.


Favorite Features

I love where the gauges are up on top, it is so easy to read, instead of having to look down to see how fast that you are going. The seats are so comfortable and I feel very safe in my car.

2003 Toyota Prius Sedan 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

My husband and I bought this car in Feb. 2003 anticipating gas prices to increase with the possibility of a war in Iraq. We drive approx. 2000 miles/month so fuel economy without sacrificing comfort is important. The Prius has not let us down.


Favorite Features

Fuel economy. On an average trip we get approx. 50-55 miles/gallon.


Suggested Improvements

Would like to be able to fold the backseats. A little more leg room for the passenger in the front would be good.

2003 Toyota Prius Sedan 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

This is truly a wonderful car. The savings with gas are great! It has an LCD touch screen inside the car that is fun! It isn't superbly useful but it looks cool! The mileage is great and the car drives amazing. It has really sharp turns and can easily handle over 80mph!


Favorite Features

LCD screen and fuel economy. It is the car for the techie and the environmentalist.


Suggested Improvements

None not already made with the 2004!

2003 Toyota Prius Sedan 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Great car but actual MPG is slightly lower than manufacturers estimates, as well as lower than car's computer display (anywhere from 2 - 6 mpg lower). MPG is lower in the winter as the car takes longer to warm up. The ride is incredibly smooth.


Suggested Improvements

Rear windshield wiper and split fold down back seats would be nice.

Review

This is a great car; quiet, comfortable and efficient. What a difference from the 14 years I had driving a minivan. Love to go to the gas station and get money back!!! I feel I am contributing to the environment with this gas/electric vehicle. Thank you to my ecological daughter for talking me into viewing (and buying on the spot) this wonderful car.


Favorite Features

I average between 42-52 mpg depending on my mode of travel. Love to look at the dashboard indicator and see the mpg!


Suggested Improvements

I miss not having a rear window wiper. I believe the seats could be improved upon, especially for long trips. Glad there are color choices now.
