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


01' vehicle purchased was manufactured
05/00 and presently has 34,000 miles.
Toyota servicing of vehicle is good and
everything is covered, including tires
and oil changes. About 1/2 the fuel
efficiency in first 5 minutes of
driving. In longer commutes fuel
economy increases significantly.
Excellant acceleration due to extra 70
horsepower electric engine that will
simmultaneously engage with 1.5 liter
gas engine. Car will run over 100 mph
even on an uphill incline. Best tank of
gas went 630 miles or about 57mpg. The
extra weight of car due to hybrid
technology makes car ride like a larger
car and has good manuverability even at
faster speeds.

Best Features

Good acceleration and nice heavy ride (smooth), easy to manuver, good gas mileage, environmentally friendly, full warranty coverage hedges risk of owning or leasing this vehicle.

Worst Features

The battery may drain when not used which may factor in poorer fuel efficiency in first few minutes of driving.
