2013 Toyota Prius v Three 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


bought this used, <7k in January.
it a big improvment over my 08 Mazda 5.
The rear room is the same, but the mpg is 2x of Mazda 5! i have hubby, a toddler and 2 mutts.
all of us fit just fine.
Hubby loves it.
it has planty of room for him (6'2") the entune sys is good.
i just wish it would remember the settings so that i don't have to press a dozen buttons just to get pandora to play.
i avg out 42.4mpg (fuelly)
my computer tells me its almost XX, but its alway -3 of what the computer says.
not sure why.
love the low maintenence vs Jetta's.
just tire rotation and oil change.
i'll be keeping this one for over 5 yrs for sure!

Best Features

love the mpgs. the car entertainment display in nice. trim 3 has all the good stuff but not the extra fluff of the 5trim.

Worst Features

1. the entune system to be less driver driven and more auto. get in the car, sync, start last app (pandora, ihart) i hate getting in the car, and having to press half a dozen bottons to get pandora playing 2. the "soft" interior is a magnet for dog hair. i would love to see leather/plastic option instead. easier to clean 3. have a quick dim option for enterament display. at night, it can be strain on the eyes. pressing a dozen bottons isn't fun. 4. more hp/bigger engine (2.0 vs 1.8) it would be nice to have a better pick and and go when getting on on-ramps and such.
