2010 Toyota Prius III 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
We got our Blue Prius III almost a month ago and are very pleased so far. Living in Vermont, we had the car delivered with snow tires on it and between those, and the ever-cold tems, we are averaging just 40mpg so far. But that is to be expected under the conditions. I expect around 50 when temps go up and the LLR tires go back on.
With the snow tires, the car has been very good on the snow covered roads and I highly suggest that anyone dealing with regular snow falls run dedicated snow tires on this car.
I'm a big guy, 6' tall and 300+ and this car fits very well.
Only negative so far is a plethora of squeaks and groans from the hard plastic dash... worse in cold weather.
High mpg, Satellite radio, push button start and keyless entry which I was sure I would hate but now I wonder why everything doesn't work this way.
Make the passenger's seat height adjustable like the driver's seat is. Softer plastics on the dash with more isolation to deal with the squeaks.
