2005 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

We just got in a head-on accident in our 2005 Prius. The car's "crumple zones" performed perfectly keeping the engine out of the interior, greatly reducing injuries. However, one of the rear seat belts did not "grab" sending my son flying into the back of the seat in front of him resulting in head injuries. Also, the gas mileage was never at 60 mpg as touted. Even with conservative driving (slightly letting off the gas) the best we could maintain was about 46 mpg. Also, the interier dash finish rubbed off easily and seats needed better fabric. Even with these flaws, we are considering re-buying, because other features worked great,it was very dependable and improvded exterior styling.

Favorite Features

Keyless entry and power start, gutsy for a four-cylinder. Easy to drive and economical, great for the environment.

Suggested Improvements

Please use a better finish on the interior! It easily scratches off and looked back quickly. The exterior is a little "tinny" and not good paint quality, scratched and dented easily, as with car door dings in parking lots.
