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