2011 Toyota Prius Two 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Leased it. It gets 45 MPG from the day One. As an EE I tell you there is no point in those batteries on this car. Any diesel engine can get you 45 MPG. Like VW Jetta does it or Civic. And the price is the same. I am glad I leased it. Just one more year... Quality is better than Camry 09 I use to have and only because my Prius made in Japan not in Kentucky. Bottom line: any car with 1.5L-1.8 L engine is better AND cheaper than Prius. The money you think you've saved is the money you paid for this car.

Out of curiosity, why are you GLAD you leased it? If you hate it, you're stuck for the contract term. If you'd bought, you could sell it today with no repercussion (and quite good resale). I never understand why people get into binding contracts (leases) and celebrate that it's easy to escape it.

Diesels will struggle to get 30mpg in city where Prius excels, on highways Diesel will fail to match Prius which run Gasoline which is at least 10% cheaper than Diesel. Onece you add VW scheduled and un-scheduled service costs to the equation you have no savings to speak off apart from German badge on the hood.
