Loving that OCD feeling while driving my new prius plug in
By danousc on


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


Just leased a 2012 plug in prius and am loving it. So much that i know am becoming obsessed on getting awesome gas mileage. Should state that i bought this car for the california carpool lane after getting a great 3 year lease deal. EV mode is so addicting.
This allows you to run on electricity only for 15 miles.
I am able to easily charge up in 3 hours at home using a regular 110v
plug and then again at work(1.5 hours on a special 240 plug).
Yesterday used another plug at a parking lot and unfortunately didnt fully connect it, thus no charge. had to convert to hybrid mode on the way home lowering my MPG. a few cons-no spare tire, its a prius, 5000 mile visits for maintenance. would buy!

Best Features

gas mileage sound system is great good visibility running on EV mode gauges are very cool and informative safety great lease rates plenty of room for 5 quiet comfortable I am 6'2'' and there is plenty of room in this car

Worst Features

no spare tire 5000 mile regular maintenance visits cost 700 dollars to replace the cord if stolen or lost only 5 colors offered brakes a bit slower than reg. prius getting carpool lane sticker is a process power mode reduces MPG Becoming obsessive in getting gas mileage results Entune is a bit complicated and havent figured it out yet navigation system is confusing
