Exceeded Expectations
By springerhills on


2012 Toyota Prius v Three 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Averaging over 50 mpg until last heat wave, dropped to 48.6 mpg, all in Eco Mode.
Much quieter than reviews indicated.
Due to longer wheelbase and stabilizing system, just as smooth as 2005 Toyota Sequoia.
Able to dictate text messages and search web hands free by double clicking on steering wheel button using on I-phone 4G when plugged into Entune.
Ample legroom in back seat and long trips are comfortable as the back seats recline.
Everything right where you need it, very well designed vehicle.
Whole family (especially skeptical husband) LOVES this vehicle.
It's like driving a Macbook Pro.

Best Features

Hands free use of Iphone and GPS, car computer system, able to use Bing, Pandora, etc. back-up camera, lock and unlocking with touch feature, rear reclining seats, back seat leg room.

Worst Features

The GPS map should have continual updates through phone sync.
