2003 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I mostly do relatively (less than 10
mile) commutes which involves a lot of
city street driving.
Under these conditions, the mileage is
excellent, never less than 40 mpg. Don't
do a whole lot of highway and hill
driving so can't comment on that.
For what I need the car has exceeded my
Outstanding gas mileage, extremely easy
to drive, very good sound system, very
visible displays with useful
Redesign interior to make more efficient
use of space; this has been addressed in
the 2004 model.
When accelerating uphill, the engine can
be relatively noisy-- don't know if this
has been addressed in 2004 or not..
