2010 Toyota Prius III 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Researched vehicle thoroughly. Decided on a 2010 over the 2009 due to many upgrades. People will find the 2010 more comfortable, smoother (no sudden jumps in acceleration) and more responsive in steering. Test drove the 2009 too many times to count, but one test drive of the 2010 was good enough for my wife and I! I've only had the car for several days and am having fun with all the fuel consumption monitoring. Heck with what all the experts are saying, this car is FUN to drive!
Console and display setup. Feedback on driving helps with fuel consumption. Very quiet compared to Honda Accord which we've owned for 5 years. With all the gadgets, I'm having fun learning about getting the most out of this vehicle. Navigation system is a MUST have!
Back quarter panels still has a blind spot. Better color selection....Sandy Beach Metallic was only acceptable color. Back spoiler is plastic....why?
