2007 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

I purchased my Prius new during the warm weather in Maine. Gas mileage is great in temps above 50 degrees, especially on the winding hilly back roads of Maine (50 mpg). During short trips in winter it drops to 30 mpg. Original tires are quiet and help gas mileage but lasted 21K. I chose to go with a different but harder tire-which should last longer but has SIGNIFICANTLY decreased gas mileage to 30-45 mpg. Highway driving averages 42-43 mpg but this auto is very light weight and stability is compromised when driving in windy conditions or when speed reaches above 80mph. The cost to maintain this auto is above average.

Best Features

Keyless system, rear camera, gas mileage for temps 50-70 degrees, placement of cup holders, controls, cargo space, roomy rear seat, nice sound system.

Worst Features

Pillars cause blind spots-rear camera is necessary, original tires too soft-wear out early, low clearance-bumpers easily damaged, mileage is not great on short trips especially in cold climates.
