2004 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl CVT)
After four years, I have a balanced view. Excellent & practical car with gas economy ranging from 37 mpg to 49 mpg in hot, flat Florida. It's relaxing to drive but no speed demon. It's about 95% an ideal car.
Quietness, smoothness of CVT, HEPA air filter, good mpg, car pool privileges, surprising spaciousness, reliability, resale value
Limited rear view (camera should be standard), skidding front wheels when wet, add seat height adjustment, road noise, improve rough road suspension, glare on display, easily damaged glovebox coating, improve performance, add 110V outlet, improve exterior style.
