Loved it at first, now I absolutely hate this car.
By rex81 on
2010 Toyota Prius II 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Don't get me wrong, the Prius is a great car to get from A to B.
But it has so many faults, mostly in the way it drives, that I had to get rid of it after 30,000 miles.
For efficiency of fuel and space, it's unmatched.
It's roomy and gets great mileage.
But... The auto on/off of the engine is choppy, the brake feel is eneven, rock hard seats, the steering is numb, the ride is harsh, there are a ton of rattles throughout the car, and the car feels like it weighs twice what it does.
Just a terrible driving experience.
I was getting about 39 mpg consistently.
No reliability issues whatsoever.
But in the end, life is too short to drive a car like this.
That's why I got rid of it.
Good, not great gas mileage.
Excellent interior space.
Adults fit comfortably in the back.
Softer seats, better drivability, softer ride, tighten up the rattles.
