2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

Currently we have 63,000 miles so we have considerable experience. Reliability has been superb. Things to fix: 1. Original tires are awful. Why not give us a good set? 2. Seats lack lumbar support. I had to find some special pads to drive more than 100 miles. 3. Allow the front seat to move farther back. I'm only 6' tall and I'm crowded into the wheel. 4. Move the shift lever so it doesn't bang my knee. 5. Fix the gas tank so it doesn't belch gas all over my feet. (I've learned to gas up standing well to the side.) 6. Improve the headlights. The lights on my Toyota pickup are infinitely better. 7. Allow more movement of the adjustable steering wheel. That's a start.

Favorite Features

The rear space is great as is the proximity key. I even like the backup camera. And, of course, the mileage is wonderful.
