Best car I've ever owned
By fruthaler on
2012 Toyota Prius Three 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
This is my fifth Prius. I disagree completely with the statement that
it is uncomfortable to drive. I've traveled almost 100,000 miles in my Priuses. Recently drove from Louisiana to Montana and back, 6000 miles at 56.7 mpg!
These are the finest cars for driving in mountains because they have plenty of power for going up 8% grades at 65 mph with cruise control. None of my Buicks would do that without downshifting. Also they go DOWN grades with little or no brake use because of the efficiency of the 'B' shift position.
This #3 model I bought because it has the solar powered ventilating system when the car is parked out in the hot sun.
I'm writing because the Navigation MAP in my 2012 model is older than the one that I
had in the 2011 model. And the Navigation system in this car is worse than any other GPS device I've used before. And Toyota won't even give me a manual that applies to the new model in my car!
