147,000 miles so far, zero problem

Vehicle

2008 Toyota Prius Standard 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

I am an extreme commuter and I would not have been able to do this without my beloved Prius. After 4 years I have about 147,000 miles on the car and have had zero problem so far. I average about 47 - 54 mpg depending on how fast I drive. If I drive 75 mph I will get about 45-47 mpg. If I drive 65 mph I would get around 52 mpg. I still have the original brakes and my mechanic told me that it still has 75% of life left. This is due to regenerating braking and my most highway driving. The OEM tires lasted 60k miles. I replaced them with the Michelin HydroEdge tires and after 87k they are still good for another 20k miles according to my mechanic.

Best Features

50+ mpg back-up camera utility of hatch back design engine off at intersections/drive thrus smart key

Worst Features

Better comfort with driver and passenger seats.

My current Prius has 84K miles on it, and this gives me hope that my car will last me quite some time before I have to replace anything. Thanks for the info!
