Vehicle

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

Review

Good vehicle. Comfortable driving but defeats the purpose of buying it. Mileage 49 for the first year, 46 for the second year, 44 in this third year. Recommended Tires very expensive ($108 against $60 for regular one), headlight HID bulbs burn out fast- Ultra expensive ($771.43 +Tax). Car can only be serviced at dealership and they charge a lot more than a regular service at Walmart. I do not see any savings.

Favorite Features

Rear view Camera, Homelink Garage Door Opener.

Suggested Improvements

Align the original intent of making this car with actual money savings.

Where you are shopping for the HID bulbs? You can purchase just about anywhere for around $100 to $150 easily. Yes, that's more than standard bulbs, but nowhere near your stated $771.43 plus tax price.
