2003 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
LEAST 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 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;^)
Program 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.
