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

Review

This is my second Prius. I had the smaller 2002 model and traded up to the mid-size. On a 3,000 mile trip last summer from Harrodsburg, KY to Tazewell, VA, Geneva, IL, Fond du Lac and Spooner, WI, Story City and Amana, IA and back to KY we averaged 51 mpg. My wife is finally getting used to the quietness. It's fun to drive and has great cargo capacity. Yes, I'm a happy senior citizen. 84 this year.

Review

I've driven all types of vehicles and none can compare to my prius! Not only does it make me feel good that i am doing my thing for the enviornment, the car is fun to drive! Really nice pick up, smooth, quiet ride and toyota reliability! the optional DVD navigation is the best navigation on the market. Easy to use and quite direct! I am averaging 50+ mpg with over 25k. With today's gas prices (3 dollars plus) I can still fill up for under 30 dollars and get close to 400 miles a tank (sometimes more)!! Do yourself a favor, get yourself a prius!! You'll be glad that you did.

2004 Prius

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

Review

My 2004 Prius was bought in Oct 03 because of the claim of outstanding mileage, the federal tax incentive and I was driving a large crewcab pickup. Mileage range from the high 30's in the coldest (below -0 F.) months to the low 50s once the weather gets warmer in the spring. It gets the best mileage in city driving about 40 mph. It is fairly comfortable in day to day commuting. The hatchback feature is very useful with the extra room with the rear seats folded down. The biggest gripes are the light beige cloth upholstery that show dirt easy and the couple of times that it left me stranded with computer glitches once at dealer when they were doing a recall and once 300 miles away.

Review

We traded in a 2001 Prius for the 2004 on the premise of better mileage. Both vehicles average 40-42 around town and 50-52 on long freeway drives. Both vehicles have had computer problems which did not affect the operation of the vehicle but merely an annoyance. The Hatchback design of the 2004 is a great improvement but the split rear window creates a rear vision problem. Having an battery upgrade to increase fuel mileage sounds promising, if the conversion price is reasonable.

Overhyped mileage

Review

60 MPG City??? NEVER. In real life I get 38-42 City and 45-50 Highway. It's time to get honest about Prius mileage. Why set up consumers to be disappointed by not getting a fictional 60 mpg?

Review

I absolutely love my prius. I will never buy anything but a hybrid again. I cannot even think of anything that I do not like about my car. A sunroof would be nice but then you might lose the aerodynamics. And who wants to give up the miles per gallon you get for a sunroof. Not me. Everyone that ridess with me loves it too. I have the navigation system and it is great when I travel. This is a great car.

It is our second Prius. We will only have hybid cars. The car is everything anyone needs in a car. Quiet, reliable, and good for the health of the nation.

Great Performance, fun to drive & reliable. Drove from Florida to Chicago twice, back through the mountains of Tennessee, and throughout Florida with my wife & dog. Enjoy the ride as much or more than with my old Lexus, or various Mercedes.

Review

Driving habbits: Mostly country driving, 45-55 MPH. Location: Wisconsin. Summer: 49-53 MPG Winter: 40-45 MPG Cold weather, and short trips do reduce milage. Driving at speeds greater than 65 mph also will reduce milage. Acceleration is ok. Accelrates faster than some mini vans, and SUV's. 0 to 60 in 10 seconds.
