Not comfortable....

2009 Toyota Prius Standard 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

The car is great, the comfort level is not so good. What this car lacks is what the latest certain Prius models have improved upon. There is no power driver seat, so finding that sweet spot for driving is a real challenge. For example, you will be finding yourself reaching out for that steering wheel when you are in a comfortable position. That will put strain on your arms while driving. There is no lower back support, so for long drives that can be for hours, this is a lower back killer. Make sure you do your daily stretches to overcome the physical drawbacks of sitting in this car.

Favorite Features

The mileage is the best feature...I get 50.1 mpg, provided I service my car every 3000 miles. They recommend changing the oil at 5000 miles, but I tried that once, and the mpg starting going down slightly.

Suggested Improvements

Lumbar support needs to improve. No telescopic steering wheel.
