2009 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
My prius has 10000 miles on it and I average no higher than 36mpg and only 25mpg in the winter. The fuel gauge reads no gas left but when I fill up it only takes 7 gallons to fill its 11.9 gallon tank. The engine is slow, loud, and noisy. For a $30,000 car I expected more. For an extra $5,000 my Subaru Tribeca gets 25mpg highway, power and heated seats, sunroof, AWD, 6 cylinder engine and better safety rating.
The engine vibrates so much the floor massages the front passengers seat.
Heated power seats, sunroof, head restraints that are softer than a rock, and better MPG.
