2009 Toyota Prius Standard 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
My wife wanted the Prius very badly and I was really turned off by the looks, but we took a test drive anyway about a year and a half ago. I was very surprised by the quality of the ride and handling. I still am surprised every time I drive the car. We live in the snowbelt of Ohio and with winter tires the vehicle is very dependable in snow and ice. I'd seriously think of getting a second Prius when the time comes.
Screen display of electric/gas motor usage; seats are fantastic; handling; comfort.
Get the JVC up grade for radio, stock stinks. Finally get the "stiffening bar/ plate" for the Prius underbody.
