2005 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I turned in my Lexus early. Lease was
costing too much per mile and the price
of gas at 18mpg is now $30 per tank. I
was hoping only for great gas milage
and got that and more. Driving the
Prius is like driving the future. It's
98% smooth, not luxurious. I would
have liked all auto windows, power
seats, leather, memory on seat
position, etc. And they COULD do this
and add another few thousand to this
car. But just the way it is, is
amazing. That's why there is a 4-6
month wait for these and people are
paying $500-$2000 over MSRP. How
stupid are we in America.. WE should be
building these. Drives fair to good,
Don't expect a BMW or Lexus.
Keyless entry and locks. Power button
startup. Silent running on battery
only 10-20% of the time. Looks cool.
Did I mention 50 mpg.... it's for
real. 60 may be pushing it. But 50 is
All the 2005 cars and even 2006's that
I have seen in a hybrid are not real
hybrids like this - with milage like
this. EVERY SINGLE car in this country
should have this drive train. AND
HUMMERS should be outlawed. Needs more
luxury features, even at a higher price.
