I'm an old pro with my '04 Prius and think it worth mentioning that, with 4 plus yrs under my belt, I can best serve others by telling an experienced well learned opinion of this phenomenal hybrid car. Mileage is excellent ranging from a low of 42-44 wintertime and 47-53 summers. Flexibility with fold-down seats is a blessing. Roominess front & back. Very good quality & dependability. Toyota has achieved a mark of excellence that I never b/4 have seen. I literally am amazed by the tranny, brakes that seem to last forever. Overall look of the Prius: beautiful (must be or Toyota would have revamped it by '08 and yet it still looks the same as my '04.)
Std sound system very good. Fit & finish great. Steering wheel controls handy. 546 miles on one tank. Winters are easy to drive thru snow. Really is a great car out of 50 cars owned.
Better interior upholstry. Smartkey should be std. Option of "plug-in" for charging. A sunroof would be nice. Simply put... great hybrid car!
