Great little car!
By gran1 on


2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


We've only put a few thousand miles on it, but it's been a lot of highway
miles. It's very comfortable. I think Toyota could have boosted the quality of
the seats, but it's still comfortable. My main "gripe" is the center arm rest. I
drove the car for about a month and then ordered the extension from Coastal
I was concerned about muddy roads as we have a pretty good stretch to
drive on them when it rains. Front wheel drive handles it like a charm!
We're getting a constant 46 - 47 miles to the gallon. We drive 35 miles each
way to work, plus around town driving. The mileage seems to get better as
it's broken in. Sooooo much better than the Jeep Grand Cherokee!

Best Features

Stealth mode. Kinda gives you a thrill when you're sneaking around.

Worst Features

1. Raise the center arm rest. Though I have to say, when I added the extension it made the interior of the car look a little smaller. Maybe that was Toyota's thought. 2. Put fatter tires, or maybe a little larger tire on it.
