2003 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
The gas mileage is great - 44 mpg
overall, including 60-70% freeway at 70
mph. Penalty if over 70 mph. More
like 50 mpg at 50 mph on secondary
roads. Quiet at any speed, and
quietest at traffic lights. Great
sound system (partly because of the
quiet ride). Other than great mileage,
this car is simply fun and easy to
drive. Visibility is tremendous, easy
and responsive steering, very nimble
and easily parked. Great for short
errands OR long trips - you just arrive
refreshed, which cannot be said for
many other vehicles.
Great snow car!! Skinny tires and lots
of low-rpm torque let this car go where
many cannot go.
MPG calulator and gas gauge should be
improved so they are accurate, on this
of all cars.
