2009 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I bought my 2009 Toyota Prius about 3 weeks ago preowned with 39,000 miles.
I love it!!!
I traded my 2000 Cadillac Deville DTS in for it.
I drive 120 miles a day to work so I needed something really good on gas.
This was it!!!
I have been averaging 41- 46 mpg all the time.
The other night I drove 60 miles home from a firends house.
It was over an hour drive on a back rd of Maine which I drove 55-60mph.
I got home and got 48mpg all the way. (I have the pic to prove it)The secret is to get up speed and maintain it.
I spend a lot of time only using my electric motor at 45-55 mph just maintaining my speed.
It takes some getting used to but once you do youll love playing the mpg game :)
this 2009 prius is amazing in the snow.
I live in Maine and travel the highway 120 miles a day for work.
Its awesome in the snow.
Just walks right through everything.
I pass every car on the highway.
It goes through slush like its not even there.
From a stop the traction control works great!!!
Back up camera, 46mpg all the time, fun to drive.
Heated seats, a gallons till empty option on the dash, gallons used option and gallons left.
