2007 Toyota Prius Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT) Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
This car is good for what it is intended, getting from point A to point B. It is definitely not a sports car or the ultimate driving experience. It is great on gas and gets better mileage during the summer (when it is hotter). I am afraid to bring this up to the snow since it is somewhat under powered (for the higher elevations) and it isn't all wheel drive. Overall, this is great, practical transportation.
2007 Toyota Prius Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT) Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
30k miles on the car now, running strong. I like the car, it has good audio, comfortable seats (not electric though), roomy, and most of all its economical to run. My insurance gives me a break because its a hybrid, I pay a lot less for gas, and it is reliable. These features save me money but I am a little angry at toyota for making it so hard to change headlights, I had to bay a few hundred because the whole front bumper needs to be taken off to get to the HID lights on the touring model. No mechanical issues, one electrical issue with cd player not working, and the GPS is horrible. Not very fun to drive and not powerful. I get about 45mpg overall.
MPG, engine and drivetrain reliability, economical to drive.
expensive replacement parts and operations, bad handling, bad acceleration.
2007 Toyota Prius Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT) Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I have driven a lot of great cars but this is by far tops. 260,000 miles, and not one creak, rattle or squeak..and that includes the brakes. I have never even had to change breaks or turned rotars, and my car drives perfectly straight still. Using engine to break and recharge battery saves the brakes!! Power is great, I can pass and go 90 mph if I wanted and engine has no straining. Oh and I have never had a tuneup either. My leather seats only have a side split in drivers seat, leather steering wheel still looks new. Dont be fooled, it's spacious and comfy. I am 6'1" and used to have back aches from driving so much, but this car's smooth ride has changed that too! Has saved me a fortune!
Mileage, smooth ride, build quality. people say that interior is cheap, but it might not look great, but it lasts. Oh, and get the dark gray paint, if you can. It looks great, but is very susceptible to road chips. There paint ain't that great.
I don't remember the original tires, but they were loud. I then changed to Michelin Primacy, and they are awesome, I get 80,000 and very quiet. Only problem I have had is replaced HID headlamps 3 times. There is a defect of some sort, I have spent $270 each time replaced both. Hid are expensive and changing them in Prius is a major pain, you have to take off bumper. I tried, but failed! Very frustrating. But that is only problem. Did I tell you I never have tuned it up, never changed timing belt or changed transmission fluid. I am so bad, and this car still has not made me pay!! Going in for needed maintenance this week, finally!!
I really wanted to like the Prius but ended up trading it in about a month after buying it. It drives like a golf cart but I'm ok with that. What really bothered me were some missing features and the ergonomics. This is a bit of an exaggeration but it felt like I had to press 3 buttons to change the radio. While the touch screen is cool and futurisic, nothing beats a button for functionality. Nothing on this car was intuitive. I constantly felt like I was doing a science experiment. And the transition between the electic motor and gas was not smooth.
Gas Mileage. Interior room and cargo space.
Ok Toyota, this is your state of the art tech car and you don't do Auto lights and one switch windows? And why would you bury a great feature like an auxilary port in your center console? The seats are pretty uncomfortable considering the car was 30k new. And a hundred dollar Garmin has a better GPS. The cloth armrest and center console are impossible to keep clean. hy would you bury the
We originally purchased this for my wife. We have since bought her a new car and I inherited it. I am 6'2" and I have found that the seat does not go back far enough for me. I am too close to the steering wheel for comfort. For short rides, it's okay, but anything over an hour and I am uncomfortable. Does get good mileage, which helps. To be honest, if I weren't upside down on the amount owed vs value, I would sell it and get a Subaru Outback.
Enable the drivers seat to go back further. I have owned other Toyotas in the past and never had this problem.
Purchased the car Toyota Certified w/50,000 miles. I have put 10,000 on it since. The car has been surprisingly good. I was really afraid to make this purchase after reading some reviews but I am really glad I did. I have had no trouble at all, scheduled maintenance is minimal and I LOVE the gas mileage. Keep in mind it is a small economical car but loaded out nicely it is great going down the road.
My 2007 Prius Touring model with Navigation is excellent in two areas: gas mileage (EPA 44-48) and reliability. People should not expect it to drive like a sports car, to ride like a luxury car, or to perform like a high clearance 4WD SUV in winter conditions. However for what it was designed to be, it is a very good car. Just don't have unrealistic expectations and you will be very happy with a Prius. I have also owned an Avalon and two Camrys and they were very good cars.
Excellent gas mileage and reliability; ample interior room for four people; back up camera; and unleaded gasoline.
Rear window visibility.
This is a great car. Comfortable, fun to drive, fascinating to use such a progressive vehicle. In Vancouver Canada, these things go for two hundred thousand miles between brake pad changes. I shake my head when trolls on this site trash the Prius. Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) turns many North Americans off these cars. "10,000 batteries need replacement every few years". "Emergency workers die from electrocution when getting survivors out of Prius wrecks". An Industry funded "study" that showed Hummers were more environmentally friendly than the Prius based on the most ridiculous assumptions i.e. Hummers last 300,000 miles but the Prius lasts only 100,000?, etc,etc.
Smart key fob, great mileage, all the airbags, HID lights
Cheaper, faster (2010 model).
Purchased new in early '07, & was initially disappointed car only got 38-39 mpg. Salesman didn't mention anything about needed to learn to drive differently, or art of hypermiling. No one said this when they were hyping 61 mpgs on sticker. Not right. Terrible in snow or slick surfaces even w/traction control, & even after replacing odd size OEM tires with better tires. Feels like you're "slipping" when braking over potholes. Can be scary. Disappointed had to learn to drive like a lil'ol granny to feel somewhat safe in this vehicle. Though driving this slowly reaps 52-54 mpg during spring & summer months. Probably a very good car if one lives in hot, dry climate but not New England.
Mileage is 46-48 in winter. Super quiet ride. Comfortable on short trip (hour or so) for four adults.
A-shaped posts on either side of windshield are blind spots. Especially passenger side when approaching 4-way intersections. Rear window has poor visibility. Front nose paint easily chips & dings. Replaced windshield (cracked by highway pebble) & now have a new rock "ding". Cabin slow to heat up
Highly dangerous car in snow and ice and rain. If there is the slightest skid the car brakes lock and you cant steer it so you just hope there is no oncoming traffic till it comes to a stop. CAr has done 360 and gone into soft shoulders in minimal snow conditions. Now it accelerates whenever i go over the smallest hole or skid. I believe it should be incl in recall as sudden acceleration is more frequent. I am most displeased with the vehicle. At dealership was told if is excellent car for good weather conditions and that I should have a backup vehicle for NY winters. It never got the sticker mileage and only gets 42mpg. It takes inordinate time for the heater to turn on.
There is no favorite feature.
Eliminate Traction control which is a dangerous gimmick which causes complete lack of control under dangerous conditions!
I bought my Prius new and I love the car, but there are a couple major complaints. At around 30,000 miles the headlights will start to go out. It will start with only the driver side that you can turn back on by flicking them off and on again. The problem gets worse as time goes on. My car now has 110,000 mi on it and I can't drive down the street without flicking them. There is not a recall on this problem and there are no plans for one. The problem is due to the HID lights overheating the ECUs. They are 600$ a piece and it will burn out again in another 30,000 miles. I would suggest asking if this defect has been fixed before purchasing ANY year prius. Despite this common prob. I love it.
MPG!!!!, Power button, lots of cargo space, cruise control, touch screen, hatch back
Fix the headlight issue permanently. Slim down A-pillars they make a LARGE blind spot. Remove the Traction control it is more likely to cause an accident the prevent one! Power seats. Lumbar support. Drivers seat more short person friendly I am 5'4". Tire replacement too expensive, only 2 cars use.
I bought my Prius used from a limo company. Got a great deal because they took good care of it. I am 6'5 and 240 lbs. and fit fine. It's a great car and I have a lot of fun with it. The pickup is good for a 4 cylinder and better when Premium gas is used. Gotta love it when I fill up the tank with premium for $25 and drive 450 miles. My wife owns a Lexus SUV and we take my car more often than hers. I'd buy another one but a new one next time.
Keyless start. Technologically updated. Good sound system. 45 mpg. Roomy interior.
I wish there was an access port for the iPod cable. Need better access too.
I'll give you the fact that the vehicle gets great gas mileage, but the savings in gas is offset by the cost to maintain. $500 to replace a headlight, $50 to replace a tail light, cost of replacement tires because the manufacturer puts an odd size on the car, $60 for a cabin air filter, and the list goes on.... Trendy car that needs a bit more disclosure as to what it really is - a really poorly designed car is easy on gas but hard on the wallet in other ways.
I got my 2007 Prius nicely discounted with around 50,000 miles. I've had it a month, and so far so good. Millage ranges in the mid 40's, about the same city/highway. Also, unlike the horror stories I was reading about the traction control, she ran fine through the worst of two snowstorms. On hills, the car does struggle when climbing, and the car does move a bit in high winds, drawbacks far outweighed by it's efficiency, and it's maneuverability, and it's handling in almost all conditions. As a parting note, the space age exterior design is sleek, sporty, and unique.
The energy monitor, along with the rest of the on board computer is a wonderful tool. I would suggest a more conventional approach to the climate control, the fan being difficult to adjust while driving.
Independent climate control. A wider center storage space. A slightly more powerful engine to aid with assent.
When I first got my Prius I loved it. Now, a year and half later, I'm hating it. For the past 2 months I have had trouble with the headlights going out on me and I have had it not start for me several times. The dealership I took it to in Maryland said it would cost me $400 to replace one headlight. When I told them about the car not starting they said it must be my battery. Then when they looked at it they said the battery was fine. I went to start up the car two days later it wouldn't start. I didn't leave any lights on or anything that would drain the battery and who knows how much a new battery for this car will cost. When you buy a car it should at least hold up longer than 1 1/2 yrs
I like that it has good gas mileage, but the money you save will come in handy after you have to pay for expensive parts and labor.
I think they should use quality parts on their cars, so consumers are not having to shell out money after only having their car for a year and half.
For those of you who have not driven one, you will be surprised. This car has surprising acceleration and lots of space inside. The Bluetooth, MP3 jack and backup camera are a real plus. The downside is the comfort level. The seats have little support, and are not comfortable for drive that goes beyond 45 minutes.
Bluetooth, quiet engine, fold down flat rear seats, MP3 jack
Upgraded seats and a sunroof would really make this a touring car.
Maybe the big draw is the gas mileage, but once you get to know this car, it becomes a thing of beauty. Once you begin to understand that the lines were developed for efficiency, rather than trend, the smoothness of the hybrid drivetrain, the excellent handling (mine is the touring model) and the good feeling that you are making each drop of gas go as far as it can, you grow to see the beauty come through. Now, when I look at it, I see an utterly gorgeous machine. One that is more advanced than any BMW, Porsche or Mercedes. It's also very very useful. It can carry four passengers in comfort, carry 10 bags of cement without a problem and fit in 8' lumber.
Keyless entry and ignition. Fold flat seats.
More cushion in the seats. Softer materials where my elbows rest.
Just purchased an original owner, 2007 Touring 22k miles, with Package 5. The OEM Bridgestone Turanzas were just about worn out and I replaced them with Michelin Primacy's 195/55/16. There are not many tire options with the 16 inch wheels on the touring. Car handles great and is very quiet. Upgraded sound system with 9 speakers and XM is fantastic.
Excellent sound with the upgraded JBL system. Love the Homelink and dimming mirror as well as the HID headlights on this version.
More adjustments to the seat, especially vertical. Current MPG near the speedo rather than the MFD where it is more difficult to see
I was very upset when my husband informed me that he wanted to buy a Pruis. I really did not like the exterior looks but after I got over the shock. We got one red with package 5. I loved it and wanted to drive it all the time. Plenty of room for me and husband and 2 kids in car seats. So easy to drive and park loved the back-up camera. But I am SAD now. We had our Prius for 1 year and then a girl pulled out in front of me and I hit her and it totaled the car. Disappointed to find out that we will have to be put on a waiting list to get our next Prius. But it will be worth the wait. Our mileage averaged 45 mpg most of the time. I think I will get leather on the next one though.
Back up camera, dash, push button start and no button to push to unlock
My suggestions would be optional sunroof/moonroof, remote start, more user friendly navigation system.
Comfortable, but not too comfortable. Peppy, but not speedy. A vehicle that improves your driving habits and rewards with great gas mileage. A car that evokes envy and also disgust, but to the driver it just doesn't matter! The world is suddenly less dunning and the planet breathes a little easier. In a funny way it teaches us to be more courteous, gentle with the pedal, and mindful of our influence on the planet. Perhaps the biggest change in my driving habits since owning this car is that I now drive less.
Keyless push-button start; energy efficiency screen that innocently instructs the driver to optimize driving habits; a great sound system; quiet operation; safety features (I hope never to test); simple but flawless performance.
More direct steering (I am not a fan of electric steering); I wished I had purchased GPS and bluetooth options.
I really like the car, but the MPG is a little disappointing. I was expecting 50+ MPG all the time, but in the winter (here in Minnesota), which is basically half the year Nov-March, I was lucky to get 40. The ride is very nice and smooth. Though the car is very light, and if it's very windy outside the car is very difficult to handle. On snow/ice it handled much better than my Sentra which was nice. I got the stablization feature, which is a MUST if you have any kind of snow/ice where you live.
MPG, stablization feature, interior room, touchscreen audio/temp/settings, backup camera
Make the seats more comfortable. I have a herniated disc in my back and it acts up everytime I drive for more than an hour. Give it more power. Yeah tough balance w/ fuel economy/power, but it could use some more.
It drives okay, handles pretty well. I think it's pretty zippy, when I go to pass I just shift into B. It is very difficult to judge the front because you can't see it & backing up with the camera is deceiving-objects are definitely closer than they appear
Backup camera, stereo, nice looking exterior, plenty of storage spots, I can haul a lot, gas mileage is great as long as the temps are above 30 degrees or more
Extremely poor gas mileage when the temps drop below 25 degrees, rear window visibility, nicer interior materials, fix glare on windshield right in my line of sight, sunroof, need adjustable lower lumbar supports, tire pressure,fuel gauge accuracy, brighter steering wheel lights, dump the beeping
2007 with Option 6 (leather, nav, backup camera). Drive car daily in both city and highway conditions. Have not had a single problem. I average 57 MPG in the summer and 52 in the winter. Usually can drive around 525-550 miles per tank. Surprised by the acceleration, it moves! Love the car, highly recommend it, especially for commuters.
Quiet, gas mileage, navigation system, and mileage calculator.
Need to work on the blindspots. I've almost been taken out by semis a couple times, I put fish eye mirrors on the side mirrors for increased visiblility (it helps a lot). It'd be nice if it had a larger gas tank.
I have had no problems with this car, it drives great, and is quick when taking off from a stop, quicker than most cars because of its electric motor that provides a lot of torque when needed. It is a fun car to drive and has a great resale value. I enjoy driving and owning this car very much.
Its great gas mileage. I love its quick response when accelerating and its easy to read gauges. I recommend this car because of it fuel mileage usually 53 to 57 mpg.
Improve the fuel economy to 100 miles per gallon. Two engineers did it in California by using a Lithium-ion battery, reprograming the computer and the were charging the battery and they achieved 99.9 MPG city driving.
As a 14yr SUV-veteran, I had to face the fact that it was not long for the road. I thought of going for another SUV but I figured gas would be going through the roof and I needed a more economical vehicle for the frequent short trips I was now making. It took a few months for me to adjust to the change in height and performance of the Prius but the tradeoff has been worth it. It has a surprisingly smooth ride on the highway and doesn't feel like it's going 70 mph. Pickup from a stop is decent, maneuverability is good, not crazy about the backup alert, passenger room is comfortable for 4 people. My trips to the gas station have been cut in half compared with the SUV guzzler.
Good gas mileage, about 45-50 mpg. Peppier pickup than my SUV. Smooth and quiet ride. So quiet, I had an offer for a jump when the engine was running on battery power - the guy thought I stalled out.
Sounds like I'm driving a utility truck when I back up the Prius - would like an option to shut off the backup alert.
Just purchased my Blue 2007 Prius Touring a few weeks ago and have been very happy with it. You do have to work on driving habits to maximize fuel economy but the results are great. I have a short commute that is uphill in the mornings. I average about 38 mpg on the way there. On the way back I have gotten as high as 77 mpg though! I just completed 30 miles of errands and averaged 57.5. My last car was a 1997 VW GTI. It has been a big upgrade in terms of interior build quality. The fit and finish is superb. I have not had any rattles and the ride is much more solid than my VW. I have had not problems with handling and it feels very stable on the highway.
Mileage, bluetooth, 6 CD MP3 changer, auxiliary MP3 input, big LCD screen, smart key is great, backup camera, very quiet and comfortable. I am 6'3 and have plenty of headroom. The rear leg room is plentiful for a car this size. Solid build quality (listen to the doors shut).
Would like heated seats as an option. Annoying reverse beeping.
I bought this car to use as my commuter vehicle into NYC from New Jersey every day. It was all about fuel economy. After using it, my whole family prefers to take the Prius on trips rather than a larger, less economical car because of the room and the ride. I am considering getting rid of that to get my wife a Prius. My fuel economy is less than I expected, but still better than any other car my 6'3" frame would fit in, at an average of 44 mpg in mostly stop and go driving. I have gotten as good as 52 mpg though with "regular" driving. I have not had any problems with this vehicle, so I can't complain on that front. All in all this car is a winner!
In order for me: The Bluetooth, LCD display (which is not distracting), fingertip controls on the steering wheel, backup camera, roominess to drive, smooth ride. For a neigborhood dog: The backup camera saved his life the other day when he ran behind and stood behind my car as I was backing up.
There are none! Other than the fact that it has been the same shape for a few years, everything else is great! I realize that add on chrome and sunroof would dress it up more, but at sacrificing the real reason we bought this car, mpg and better emissions.
I practically live in my vehicle during the week as I drive quite a bit as a part of my job. Having driving a Honda Insight for a year and being very happy with its performance I looked a the Prius for better comfort and I must say I got it. While gas mileage is not as good (at about 53 avg) as the Insight (60.5 avg)I have been very pleased with the smooth and quiet ride. The many accessories like Blue Tooth for my cell phone, iPod speaker connnection, and excellent stereo system performance have met all my exacting expectations. The Touring Edition suspension and beefy tires have performed well for this tall car by keeping it flat when negotiating the tight turns on the roads I travel.
Quiet interior traveling at highway speed and on average road surface, keyless entry, stereo system, iPod connection, storage spaces, and responsive suspension and steering.
I would like to see the car use more electric power to get away from the stop light quicker and avoid holding cars up behind you when you want to try to optimize the use of electric power. The more battery power we can use around town, the better mileage we can attain.
This is a remarkable car. Whoever designed it took into consideration many elements, not just gas economy and exterior appearance, that provide convenience and comfort. Smartkey is only one of them. Controls on the steering wheel -- wow! Backup camera -- don't let anyone tell you that this is a stupid feature. It may save you hitting a person or vehicle in a parking lot. We've even been able to take a long road trip in the Prius and feel quite comfortable. Highly recommend the Prius even if you prefer 15 mpg!
The Toyota Prius is the greatest car we have ever owned. We traded in a Ford Escape Hybrid and the Prius gets much better gas mileage and is much quieter and fun to drive. It has everything a Lexus has, for half the price. My wife was in a head-on crash that totaled our first Prius and it did a fantastic job protecting the everyone inside. The car was totaled.
Navigation system and voice controls.
It is perfect.
I have been very happy with this car. It is comfortable, zippy when needed, and quite economical. I am averaging 48 MPG, but expect more when I learn to drive it better. I highly recommend the navigation system, the bluetooth connection, and the leather interior. I have give my friends rides and they are really surprised at how comfortable it is to ride in.
Duh! Fuel economy is #1. The nav #2. The Bluetooth #3. I think the fact that it is "different" than other cars would be #4.
I thought at first I would hate the view through the hatchback, but it really is easy to work with, so none really.
The Touring model has good handling (little body lean on turns) and is fun to drive. However, it rides much like an economy car (a bit road noisy and you can definitely feel bumps, RR tracks, etc.) Some interior materials feel cheap esp. fabric and plastic dash/doors. However, there is a lot of cool technology way ahead of the average car. It gets very good mileage, avg. 44, best 50.1. We drive 400 miles on a tank and all fill-ups have been UNDER $30 even w/CA gas prices up to $3.29 gal - ouch!. It also has very good power for small HP engine. Goes up highway hills with no problem, but works hard going up lower speed mountain roads. Next time would buy Touring model w/o any pkg.
Economical to operate/good MPG, lots of cool technology, Toyota reliability, good power for small car, fun handling. Backup camera is cool, but could do without. High-end stereo does not sound worth the cost, but anxious to try out bluetooth cell phone. Amazing amt of interior room for size.
Improve ride quality/smoothness over uneven surfaces/bumps and road noise. Get thicker seats w/better quality fabric. Minimize interior plastic, esp. dashboard and tops of doors. Make steering wheel telescoping - is too close to dash and you feel like you're reaching for the steering wheel.
I traded in my 2003 Mercedes Benz ML500 and I have no regrets. I was getting 13 mpg with the Benz and it cost me $60 to fill up using premium fuel. Great ride, good performance and the technology is wonderful. Great gas mileage about 48 mpg.
Energy consumption screen, well basically the whole enchilada.
Moonroof, nicer rims and tires.
I traded in a 1998 Mercedes Benz ML320 for the 2007 Prius Touring edition in Seaside Pearl blue. (Touring has a bigger spoiler, bigger tires and tuned suspension.) I couldn't be happier! Fun to drive, has more pick up than I expected, very comfortable and reliable and, of course, the legendary gas mileage. All my friends made fun of it before they rode in it. Now they love it. I personally like the way it looks and drives. I had mine equipped with leather seats, navigation system, back up camera, JBL audio and Bluetooth. I love the fact that I'm reducing my carbon footprint as they say, especially important here in smoggy southern California. Overall, great car!
Awesome gas mileage, good acceleration, body style, color, comfort, reliability, sound system, high tech features like touch screen monitor, back up camera and Bluetooth. And did I mention the gas mileage?
A moonroof might be nice.
I bought this car as a third vehichle for myself- basically to run back and forth to work in and for errands. I certainly did not buy it for its looks going in, but for fuel economy. This car did not deliver as advertised. I am averaging about 35 MPG highway/city driving- not the 50 MPG+ as advertised. I feel sorry for those who have this car as a primary vehichle- it is very uncomfortable after 1/2 hour- seats are hard and headroom is poor. The car is very slow merging on the freeway and keeping up with traffic. Very noisy at speeds of 60 MPH plus The "check engine" light came on, but dealer could not find anything wrong. This is a good car for a teenager or for short trips only.
Fuel Economy, cargo space
More accurate and real-world MPG, styling
Surprising power in the mountains for such a small car. Very comfortable too. The basic sound system was also better quality than we expected. Our video gamer teenage son loves driving it to see how much better he can do on gas mileage than his parents. Overall, so far, we are really happy with our purchase and would recommend it to anyone.
Real-time feedback on gas mileage.
I got my Prius 6 weeks back. I absolutely love it!! Before this I was driving BMW X5, Now I like the Prius much better. Fuel economy may be the reason. I drive 125 miles everyday (all highway) and I track all my gas purchase, date filled and number of miles. So far I am getting 56 miles per gallon and that is awesome as compared to my BMW.
Everything, Smart key, LCD screen, navigation, 6-CD changer, back up camera.
Moon roof, automatically controlled seats.
We bought a Prius in November, and it does not live up to the hype. The keyless entry system stopped working at 2,500 miles and has required 3 trips to the shop to fix. The seats are VERY uncomfortable on long trips, and everything is just waaay too complicated to operate (audio, temperature, etc.), and I hate doing it all on the screeen--whatever happened to simply turning a knob?!. Finally, the real MPG is nothing even close to that listed on the sticker. Over the life of the car so far, I have averaged 36.6 MPG. Granted, I am in stop and go traffic, but isn't it supposed to workbest in those conditions? All-in-all, I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone.
I-pod hook up.
More comfortable seats; simpler audio/climate control; sunroof option; better reliability.
This is our first new car in 7 years. I'm a real techy, gadgety type of guy and absolutely love this vehicle. We are getting approx 44 mpg with less than 1000 miles on the car so far. Traded in a 2001 PT cruiser that got a whopping 18 mpg in the city. The gas bill is already much lighter. Plenty of room for the rear facing car seat, stroller, and a full week's worth of groceries. It's true that the MFD actually makes you a more "speed aware" driver. I don't see any speeding tickets in my future. I'm too busy trying to get 75+ mpg every 5 minutes. Highly recommend this car. Especially the touring edition. It definitely looks better than the base model.
Bluetooth phone integration, smart key, MFD, XM radio, 6 disc mp3 player. Everything is integrated into a "central command" area. The ride is pretty smooth and the car seems very solid.
Minor complaint that sometimes I can feel the engine kick on and off. Not a big deal though. The bottom hatch window is purple with factory tint in the glass (yuck). Not a big fan of cloth on the interior arm rest. I'm sure this will look bad in a few years.
I became a believer after I drove my niece's Prius! This one is a keeper - it sets the gold standard in technology, economy and technology, and challenges other carmakers to compete! It offered more than what I expected. I am averaging 51 MPG in suburban driving. The car engages you constantly, and actually encourages prudent driving. I have scored one convert so far - my houseguest last night! Get the Touring Model - the heftier wheels, suspension, stability control and back-up camera are well worth the extra grand.
Quiet ride! The satisfaction of driving the most advanced technology while conserving gas!
Add a sunroof and more supportive seats all round.
With the very first tankful of gas I achieved 51 mpg and have averaged in the low 50s ever since. The car is very comfortable, excellent storage space with the hatch back and folding rear seats. Every function of the car is done through the LCD screen with a constant readout of gas mileage so you know exactly how efficiently you are driving. During my research I had read that this car should be driven with the cruise control and that was correct. You can set it as low as 25 mph and adjust accordingly which eliminates the driver's ability to provide a constant gas pedal pressure. Not too heavy, not too light. Other cars love to zoom past me, but I always win at the gas station.
Gas mileage, LCD screen, storage space, comfort.
With gas approaching $3.00, this was an excellent investment. I am getting over 48 mpg combined city/highway driving. The ride quality is excellent.
MPG, quiet, build quality, ride comfort, visibility.
None. They got it right the first time out.
I bought this car for a commuter expecting stellar fuel economy, and that is not what I saw. Although 32 is good on the highway but not what I expected for $20k+. Many cars would have suited me better. Don't get hyped over gas mileage because it won't make you the money back. My pontiac grand prix got 31 mpg for 40% of the cost. My only other issue is my a/c unit is not very reliable.
Moderate comfort, decent mileage in town.
AC unit failed twice, gas mileage is about 15-20 mpg under epa sticker, flimsy structure, overpriced by 5-7k in comparison to equivalent domestic or japanese products.
I got the Prius touring fully-loaded and it is great. I have been disappointed that I can't average more than 45 mpg, but that is still higher than any other car on the market and maybe the mileage will increase come summertime. The interior is really nice. There is nothing like Toyota quality - they are built to last.
Fold-down seats, plenty of cargo room, great interior, MP3 player hookup.
Sun roof, bigger cup holder, steering wheel controls that light up brighter.
My husband bought this car for commuting to his job -100 miles one way. He gets approximately 41 mpg. I drive a Honda Odyssey around town, but I enjoy getting my turn with the Prius occasionally. The car is very roomy and the navigation has been very easy to figure out. It seems to have plenty of pick-up when needed. I find driving the Prius to be a peaceful experience, much more relaxing than the internal combustion engine.
I love the experience of driving a hybrid. It is very relaxing. My year-old grandson seems to understand this type of car is the future - he loves riding in it! I like having the back-up camera - wouldn't buy a car without one now. Gas mileage and envious looks of others at the gas station.
An automatic opener for the hatchback. Automatic seat adjustments with memory. Back-up noise should be to warn the people outside not inside. I know I'm backing up. Radio reception is poor - we bought an iPod because of this. Bluetooth should be more advanced and simpler to use.
We absolutely love our new Prius.
Navigation, bluetooth, sound system, backup camera.
Sun roof, getting frequent updates for the navigation system, backup camera available in normal drive mode, daytime running lights, option to disable the beep during backup, some way to stop the screen from asking us to agree every time.
I traded in my 2004 for a 2007 because I wanted side air bags. Probably the best car I have ever owned.
GPS, back up camera, great mileage.
My Touring Edition is still in the early ownership phase. Its current gas mileage is in the upper 30s with mostly city driving. I attribute this to a couple of factors: it's new, it's winter and cold, and winter blended gasahol dents the mileage. I love the handling. The interior room is OK but foot/leg position for the driver isn't quite right for me. Fit and finish are great which is typical for Toyota. Like other hybrids, there are some driving techniques which really boost the gas mileage.
Backup camera, electronic stability control, air bags all around and handling are all big pluses. The Toyota keyless system is great. The instrumentation (dash) takes getting used to before you love it. Hinged outside rear view mirrors are appreciated. The hatchback design is great.
Daylight driving lights on an automatic system, similar to the Camry hybrid, would be appreciated. Power adjustable front seats would be a plus. Arm rests for the front are not quite at the right height for max comfort.
A really fun car to own and drive. Previous car was a MB 350ML. We are getting 55 MPG average city and highway
Keyless start and 500 miles/ 9 gal of regular between fill-ups.
More user friendly nav system. I have a Tom Tom in my T-Bird and it is much easier and quicker to use.
I love this car. I had a 2005 fully loaded. Got a 2007 Touring fully loaded and like it better then the 2005. Comfort of front seat (driver's) is much better. I drove from Las Vegas Nv to San Pedro Calif and then to Ontario Calif. Topped the tank off, a whopping 7.46 gal. WOW!! Most of this at 65 to 75 MPH.
Mileage is great. It rides better than the 2005 I had.
I have the top end FM/AM/CD player but it does not have a cassette. I still have a ton of cassettes to use.
After using the initial Prius Touring for one week to replace a small SUV, I bought a second one. Now we have two and like both of them. Very impressive once one gets over the macho feelings of driving an SUV or large sedan (Avalon). High tech features, quiet ride, great mpg, fine stereo, and the leather aftermarket seats installed by the dealer, all combine to make for a superb experience. As seniors (66 & 62) we think these are good travel cars, reliable and efficient. So far--wow!
High tech features such as smart key, power button start, parking, etc. plus the mpg.
Need a driver power seat for quick adjustments, especially when changing drivers. Better foot room for driver.
When Honda first introduced the first 'Hybrid' vehicle on the market, it didnt do such of a large impact, simply because fuel economy was not such a concern several years ago but now since the high prices of gasoline has reflected off my new 07 Prius I seem to realize I have not only purchased a gas saving car, but I bought the best hybrid yet! With its remarkable value; lower prices, more to choose from, and better looks, it totally beat 'any' hybrid in its price- range! I totally enjoy every piece of metal used on my car, and I seemed to realize, it was one of the greatest investments in my life that I have conducted...Because of what I have done, I have
I completely enjoy every part of my car, from the rear back-up camera to my vehicle monitering system! The latest in navigation technology, and my large dual glass panaroma moon- roof. I totally have to say, everything from size, to comfort, to style, the Toyota Prius is the only, bes
Although I greatly enjoy my 2007 Prius, I still believe that they should enhance the fuel capability by making it more aerodynamic, more sharper lines to not only improve in looks, but performance and fuel savings! They should also add more battery power for faster acceleration.
The auto is very easy to drive.Acceleration is more than adequate. Provides a quiet drive with few gas stops.
