Loved it so much we purchased another

Vehicle2012 Toyota Prius c Two 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewPurchased our C 2 on Halloween 2012 after much research , car trying & bargaining with dealers. We needed to save GAS $$ because one of us was driving 12 hours every weekend & with 2 kids in college - budget was tight. Non of the other gas saving , budget cars felt just right until this one. We went for the 2 because the extra $$ for the 3 didn't seem to be worth it for us. After 9 months & about 24,000 miles , we are VERY happy with this car & are surprised by how much fun it is to drive. In the beginning we would have competitions to see who would get the best ECO score & MPG- if you go totally EV for long stretches 99 MPG is possible. Now we just drive & get 44-51 MPG. Save over $200 pm . UPDATE : After a year of satisfied ownership we purchased a second ( not to mention the great tax rebate we got on the 1 st ) . Got the next model up for the same price I had purchased the 1 st at - still not worth the upgrade.ONlY CON
Is - The 2013 GPS touch screen is in a bad position and the sun shines on it so it is hard to see. Not sure if they improved that now. We are just glad we didn't pay extra for the upgraded model.
