Best Car I've ever owned
By Bill on
2007 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I live in the mountains, but I still have a lifetime MPG of 50.7. Climate control is fantastic, stabilization control, tire pressure monitoring and 6 air bags, makes this car very safe. Hybrid-electric doesn't mean gutless. While you will sacrifice MPG for the moment, you can accelerate up a steep grade to 80 MPH + and keep up with anyone. No keys to mess with is great, just approach the car and cabin light up and the door opens, get in and go. This is truly a car ahead of its time. I've had -0- repairs or warranty work in nearly 2 years and 40,000 miles. I'm planning to buy a 2nd one.
Integrated phone and navigation systems are very helpful while the climate control and sound systems (in dash 6 CD changer) makes driving a pleasure. The back up camera is VERY helpful in close quarters.
Add a front perspective camera, as it is hard to park close due to the design of the hood.
