2005 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I had previously owned a hybrid civic. The Prius gets better mileage and is more versatile with cargo (the seats fold down for entire back storage). The Prius is comfortable to drive and ride in, with easy maneuverability, too!
Powerful AC, average 50+ MPG, fewer oil changes. At the 100K mile service, no problems were found.
I wish there was less road noise. That's the one thing I like about a luxury vehicle. . . it's QUIET inside!
