2012 Toyota Prius C: The People Have Spoken
October 20, 2012
Every now and then I like to check out our consumer reviews to see what the folks who actually own a given car have to say about it. Cruising through the reviews for the Prius C I saw the expected praise for the impressively high fuel economy and park-ability as well as kudos for features (on the upper trims) such as the keyless ignition/entry and easy-to-use Bluetooth. Amazingly, a commentator with the username "Ispeed" hated the car (his fiancee has one) because it was too slow for him.
Of course these consumer reviews are subjective, and some may argue that folks feel obligated to only say good things to justify their purchase. But most folks seem to be fairly even-handed and I feel these are a valuable research tool. Regardless of whatever car you may be considering, it's always a good idea to hear what the owners think.
