2012 Toyota Prius Three 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


The Prius has proven itself to be reliable and provide very good gas mileage. The seats are comfortable, however the road noise needs to be reduced. It may be the norm for cars of this class, but Toyota should do better. I have over 25K miles on the car now so I spend considerable time in it. The only complaint is the highway raod noise. I would gladly trade a mile or two per gallon for a quiet car.

Best Features

gas mileage, easy to drive.

Worst Features

More insulation to buffer road noise.

My 2012 Prius, too, is horribly noisy on the road. The noise is so disturbing that I suggest you consider buying something else. Buy it and you will regret it. I'll never buy a Prius again. The noise is due to noisy tires (Goodyr Assurance FuelMax) and poor sound insulation. The Prius provides an exquisite power train in a tin can.
