Best Car ever owned.
By martint1448 on
2013 Toyota Prius Two 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I bought a 2009 Prius and have so far put 162,000 miles on it without any issue of any kind. The first set of brakes are still in place and it has never let me down on trips all over the country.
Gas mileage is outstanding. If you don't thrash this car it will get 45MPG average over the life of the car. Comfort is not an issue in the 2 front seats although there have been a few complaints from rear seated passengers on long trips. The car has plenty of pep and handles very well.
Gas tank. I realize that the "compound" gas tank is green and all that but you never really know how much is in it. When the "flashing cube" appears you have no clue if you can go 50 miles or 150 miles. The tank is supposed to hold 11.9 gallons but I have never managed to get 10 into it.
SATNAV. Very poor for the money. In my next Prius there will be a Tomtom and no factory satnav.
