2001 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


What first hooked me on this vehicle is
when the salesman moved the car forward
and backward with no engine sound. The
2nd thing is the car's ability to go up
into the mountains on I-70 from Denver
to the Eisentower Tunnel while
maintaining the speed limit and
carrying 4 people. I had one problem,
a faulty accelerator sensor. Have had
no problems since. Gas mileage is
below the quoted amount - Overall
mileage averaging @ 41 mph.

Best Features

Stealth mode, which is moving with the engine off. The touch screen display, which shows whether the engine and/or motor is supplying the power, fuel economy, and provide radio controls.

Worst Features

Relocate radio buttons that are obstructed by steering wheel and/or gear shift lever. Increase horsepower of engine - at highway speeds of 70 mph or greater in a wind, much work from the engine is needed, but I guess this is true for most small vehicles.
