2005 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Good car overall. After two years overall MPG is 40. I have been driving with traffic. I guess if you drive delaying everyone then you can get 50 mpg. Otherwise forget about it. After two years rattles started to develop in the cabin. Toyota should be looking closer at who is buying the car - this is not Echo/Corolla crowd. Toyota, please don't hesitate to make car a few grand more expensive, but make interior higher quality and insulate sound better. I don't need Lexus 450h, I want better Prius. 2007 model adds leather, but seats are still cheapo stuff.
Better material quality, better fit and finish. Better stock tires. Better cabin sound insulation. 8-way power seats.
