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

Review

The Prius is really fun to drive even though it is not greatly overpowered. The power steering & brakes are are quite sensitive because they are electric. The car is easy to park & handle, holds the road well & the HID headlights are really appreciated. Although there are no power seats, I am sitting higher than other cars so as to make my lower back more comfortable. However, I have convinced no one to buy the car even with the great MPG I get.

Favorite Features

Great MPG... average 54 MPG during 8 months of warm weather & about 48 MPG during frigid weather. You will only get this MPG if you drive the car as a test driver drives the car.

Suggested Improvements

Toyota has improved the quality of the dashboard material. Diesel engine & Lithium battery pack would greatly increase the MPG. A truer reading gas gauge would be much better. I dislike the electronic trunk release. My battery went dead & could not easily get into the trunk. No rear camera.
