2009 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
This car is exactly what it is supposed to be. It is the best hybrid on the market. Toyota built it from the ground up as a hybrid, so it has a distinctive look and great features. Ive had my Seaside Pearl Prius with Package #6 for 3 months and I love it. All you have to do is get in it and drive. The switching between electric and gas is almost imperceptible. This car has an abundance of amenities that make it fun and interesting. The cabin is very flexible, allowing you to carry passengers and cargo with ease. The acceleration, comfort and ride are great.
Unmatched quality and design, gas mileage, Smart Key system, touch screen, navigation, bluetooth, backup camera, leather seats, JBL stereo, steering wheel controls, abundant storage, great ride and comfort. It also has a high driving position and the visibility through the windshield is great.
For me, the bladder gas tank is the worst drawback on this car. There has to be a better way to fill up the gas tank - all the way - without wearing a gallon of it on your shoes. If you spill gas, doesnt that defeat the purpose of releasing gas into the atmosphere? Toyota, are you listening?
