2010 Toyota Prius III 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I hate it, wife loves it. had the car 2 months and it is covered in dents from acorns (tree above our parking space). this is not just my car, I have looked for and seen this in parking lots on several prius's. drive is not comfortable, poor seats and acceleration makes the gas engine rev wildly but have little effect. interior ceiling feels like recycled cardboard. (feel roof when you test drive). rear view mirror shakes with stereo base. only use is for short runs where you don't go over 30mph. (wife uses it for these) unfortunately I drive 99% on the freeway and the car shakes at 55mph (center console esp.). windshield fogs up quickly at all times.
trunk space is useful. but in hindsight would have purchased a VW jetta TDI.
reduce car shake. acorn resistant roof material. quality of materials all round.
