My Silver 2009 Prius

2009 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I've had my 09 Prius for 2 weeks and 400 miles. I've driven two round trips of 150 miles each and some city driving and have an average of 52.5 MPG so far. I've read that the mileage goes up significantly after break in. Can't wait!! Feels like I'm driving a concept vehicle. Displays and controls are easy to understand and use.
The Smart Key system. Love it, but still reach for my key. I'll learn. The automatic climate control. Set it and forget it, though I try to keep it reasonable based on outside temp to keep mileage up. Energy use and mileage screens. Using to see what gives me best MPG.
Driver seat really needs to adjust at least an inch (25mm) farther back to accommodate taller drivers. A slightly more powerful engine, but don't sacrifice gas mileage.
