Vehicle2003 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewLEAST polluting auto in the USA. Stylish on the inside; makes a statement on the outside. Prius is FUN to drive. 258 lb.-ft. of torque makes it MOVE from a stop light. Smooth forward movement from 0 to 100 miles per hour. Power to keep up with traffic (and pass, if you are so inclined) safely and with confidence. My lifetime (9 mos) MPG is 46, 80/20 highway/local. Toyota warranty for hybrid design 8yr/100k miles; powertrain: 5yr/60k miles; basic: 3yr/36k miles. This is a GREAT car. Two complaints: see below - otherwise, very comfortable.
Best FeaturesBest steering/turning/auto xmission. Info Display tracks instant mpg and up to last 30 min. Nav system a blessing when needed. 258 lb.-ft. torque;^)
Worst FeaturesProgram cruise control to remember last setting when at stop light: lower shutoff speed from 23 to 19 mph for the school zones. Provide lumbar support and room for right foot with knee bent.
