2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
We have owned our 2006 Prius for 3 years and have clocked 79,000+ miles to date. We also own a volvo xc70. The volvo may be more stylish but the Prius is really fun to drive and it has been totally reliable. We have taken long trips to NYC and Michigan and have done lots of in city driving. We were concerned about the life of the battery but read in a British Columbia Climate Exchange report that Prius taxis in BC have gone more than 200000 miles without a battery replacement.
Reliability. Fun to drive. Gas mileage! More interior space than we expected.
