2004 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Much enjoying driving the Prius.
Excellent acceleration, gas milage (46)
in mostly freeway driving it is getting
better-now have 4500 miles on it.
Engine is a little noisier than I
expected. Handling is not in the sport
sedan class, but is adequate. The
limited slip system worked well in
snow. Rear seat has good knee room.
Good Halogen headlights.


Best Features

Gas milage, good 6-CD sound system, controls are well placed, can operate sound volume, temperature, both defrosters forl wheel.


Worst Features

Navigation system is not user friendly. Improve handling. Reduce engine noise on acceleration.

2004 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

All I need to say is test drive one,
that is all it took for me. Luckly I
ordered mine before the real hit took
place, I only had to wait two months
for delivery. We drove the car from
Washington state to California and only
stopped for gas once. It went through
the Siskiyou mountain range as if it
were flat, plenty of power and handled
the curves with ease. The car gets an
A+ from me!


Best Features

We got the GPS system, fun to play with but not that necessary. The keyless entry and keyless start is probably the best idea to date.


Worst Features

The back seat headroom is not that good for a 6 foot tall person so have the tall people sit in front. Road noise is there so I just turn up the radio a bit. All in all it is a great car.

2004 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I feel bad for anyone who doesn't own a
Prius! I'm a big guy...and my previous
vehicle was a Grand Cheerokee, the
Prius has more leg room in the back set
with the front seats pushed back than
the Jeep. If I could get in and out
easily then that was just one more
plus. I drive in city traffic the most
and my mileage is about 35mpg with
start and stop traffic on the road I
get up to 48mpg. In the past I haven't
been a crusader on gas and emission
issues, I am now and proud. The price
rocks too. It's excellent...age is 52.


Best Features

The smooth ride, quietness and feeling of security. It has a very small turning range and that's good.


Worst Features

Option to turn off the running lights and/or a light sentinal sensor as a purchase option.

Review

My husband and I both own a 2004
toyota prius. HIS TOY AND HER TOY both
get top ratings from us. We love being
GREEN and we love the quiet ride. We
both are on the road daily and he is
getting 54 miles and I am getting
around 50. The secret is to go 55 on
highway and drive like a grandma in
town!


Best Features

SYNERGY


Worst Features

More sporty look but like the aerodynamic look too.
