Fantastic Car in today's economy
By Scott on
2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I've had this car since 2/08, and it's quickly become the car most driven in our family. True MPG of 47-48 mph. Note -- Mileage poor for first 5 minutes of driving, while engine charges battery, and fluids are heated. After that, mileage superlative. For 30 minute work commutes, it is unbeatable. I have gotten over 50 mpg for a tankful before, and never below 46 mpg. Pickup is not great, but is adequate. Comfort level is outstanding; radio sound quality superb; seating very comfortable; easily fits 4 adults. This is an outstanding vehicle.
GPS, music sound quality, headlights, Info display panel and most importantly unequaled 47-48 real MPG!!
Get rid of the irritating backup "beeper"; Configure driver's seat to allow it to slide back further for taller drivers;
