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


We bought in 2005 with 45K when I bought several new cars for my company at a Toyota dealership. I wanted a used Prius because I did not want my wife to get a new one and dislike it. She likes it because it is easy to drive in town and averages 45 MPG. I like it because I fill it up every three weeks. Recently, we got the "Triangle of Death" after replacing the 12V battery. Had it towed to the dealer and was informed that we needed a new traction battery. Bad news, $4,698.00 for the new battery & the good news is; Toyota picked up the tab including the towing. There are many expensive components on these cars and if they go south, you could pay but right now, it's a great car to own.

Best Features

45 MPG in town & in dash GPS.

Worst Features

Seats need more adjustment features and the radio is difficult to work.
