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

I felt good buying this car because of
all of the environmental stuff but I
really just wanted something that was
reliable and had good gas mileage.
What I got was much much more. Thanks
Toyota for such a great experiance.

Gas Milage. Hybrid System. Great Warranty and preventative service package.

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


Review

The Prius is an experience. I had been
gett blaise about cars. This one I
love. But it isn't about performance
or interior comfort. It is about doing
the right thing for our lungs, our
country and the planet. Cut smog,
reduce use of non-renewable resources,
save money, and enjoy it.


Best Features

Hybrid engine and ability to drive on electric only.


Worst Features

Main concern is the crash ratings , which were not tops.

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


Review

The car has done great and we average
46 to 48 mpg overall mileage. The only
problem we have had is with tires. They
have not held up well at all however
Toyoto has replaced them twice at no
charge trying to find the problem.


Best Features

Driver comfort and Dashboard design.


Worst Features

Better tire design.

Review

We've owned lots of Toyotas and usually
expect high reliability from the
company. The 2001 Prius hasn't met that
expectation. Our car has been the shop
every couple of months with lots of
problems including: tires wearing out,
steering column noise, battery dying,
mysterious engine stalls, electrical
problems that disabled the radio and
assorted other nagging things. We've
been quite surprise by the severity of
the problems and the inability of Toyota
to diagnose and fix them. Presumably,
the newer version of the Prius have
worked through the problems. But the
2001 was been a disappointment.

Review

Super car! Fun to own and drive.
Averages 50-55 mpg in warm weather and
around 40 in winter(in the northeast).
Starts well in frigid weather and
handles well on snow and ice.
Comfortable on long trips--easy on the
back. Easy for handicapped individuals
to enter and exit.


Best Features

Great gas mileage! Comfort on long trips. Excellent climate control.


Worst Features

I miss having cruise control.
