TRADED IN CMAX AFTER 10 MONTHS FOR THIS PRIUS
By tradedcmax on
2013 Toyota Prius Three 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I had decided to buy the Ford Cmax over the Prius without having tried the Prius.
I did so because I bought into the hype and I really did like the way the Cmax drove.
I also wanted to do the buy American thing.
After 10 months and nearly 15K miles, never going over 37mpg, dealing with the many build quality issues (lots of them) I stumbled upon the NHTSA recall for the safety crash thing and said it was the last straw.
So I traded in the Cmax for the Prius.
And I haven't looked back.
The first 3 fill ups were 49, 47, and 45.
Already I got the MPG that the CMAX could not.
So it wasn't just me.
The Prius works great, is comfortable, and is an amazing build quality!
I love the backup camera/navigation system that comes with the level 3.
I also love the soft seats, they are quite comfortable.
The XM radio has an amazing sound quality.
The proximity locks are very cool, never have to put a key in a lock again.
Just walk up and the doors are unlocked when you touch the door handle.
I am really enjoying the MPG, getting roughly 47MPG average over 3 fill ups.
I can honestly say there is nothing that I would change about this car.
The build quality is amazing, absolutely nothing was wrong with this car from the moment I test drove, purchased, and took delivery of this car.
