2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Bought this car 1/16/06 and finally experienced our first problem - right rear tailight bulb burned out (that's what I thought until I jiggled the bulb and it came back on) 61K miles and still have not had to even change the brake pads! Very roomy and comfortable. Surprize - it will do 106 mph (I personally attest)! OK, it's not a sporty car - but it is fun to drive on the back roads here in NH. We have pushed the MPG reset button only once - at 36K miles - the first 36k our average mpg was 44.7 and since it has averaged a little lower at 43.9. Cold weather and 4 wheel snowtires (a must where there are snowy roads) decrease mpg considerably. Getting ready to buy a 2010 - psyched!
The Smart Key is so smart - it knows what door you're standing next to or if the key is in or out of the car. Great NAV unit. Backup camera. Lots of cargo room. Gobs of headroom. Great sound system. No need to drive like you're towing a trailer full of chandeliers to get 44 mpg.
Shorten the Voice Commands in NAV. Allow Audio screen to stay up if that's what you want - reverts to trip computer after several seconds.
