Mr. Economy

2003 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
This automobile is very comfortable ahd quiet. My average fuel economy is 44 mpg with the majority of trips being 3.5 miles to and from work. I have read other reviews of the cars poor handling but I find those views to be untrue. This car hugs the twisties and is very predictable in its responses. Power is marginal but adequate. Passing power band is acceptable with a top speed of 104 mph on level road. Top mpg I've gotten was 53. The feel of the car is much larger that it's footprint suggests. The car I was going to get before looking at the Prius was a Mini Cooper. Glad I got the Prius though I still have the "motoring" philosophy.
Favorite Features
Thumbing your nose at gas stations of course is the biggest draw of this car. I find every aspect of the Prius to be well thought out and functional. Very CLEAN design. Love this little car.
Suggested Improvements
The new Prius has removed the "pickle" shift lever and given it more power in the electric mode. All of this is nice but the design as it stands is quite good.
