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


The first thing that amazed me was getting inside--very roomy, though it looks small from the outside. It's a very light car, so performance depends upon the weight in the vehicle. But even with 4 people, it has plenty of getup and go. Full of gadgets. Great car. The fact that it is a hybrid just makes it that much better

Best Features

1) Touch display/computer/radio thingy 2) Almost-HUD speedometer 3) The fact that it is silent at stoplights, in the neighborhood, etc.

Worst Features

Gosh. Well, add a nav system--oops, they did in the next year. Tires have been a problem because they tell you to inflate them too low. Pump 'em to 45 or more and they wear fine.
