Another happy Prius owner
By Lowell on
2004 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl CVT)
We traded a 1995 Cadillac Seville, SLS, for our Prius, and have never been sorry a minute. The interior is exceptionally well designed, and the electronics are superb. Good air conditioning, easy to read instruments, good storage space, and comfortable for 4 adults. We've been pleasantly surprised on its long trip capabilities, having taken it on two trips of over 2,000 miles. Our friends say, "That's what we all should be driving".
We've avaraged very close to 50 miles/gallons over 30,000 miles. The touch screen controls are easy to use, once you've mastered them. It's fun to drive, and a great topic of conversation among our friends, or with strangers in a parking lot. And now we're "heroes" to our grandkids!
It could use a better sound system (tends to get shrill in the high ranges), and the tire quality could be better.
