Mileage not holding up over time
By gypsy2 on


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


After 14 months the mileage began to
fall and the dealer claims to find no
problem. Mileage has never matched
what the computer says, off
consistently 2 to 5 miles, more
lately. I got consistent 46 mpg first
14 months, more on long straight
drives, then it fell to 23 mpg for a
month, then gradually climbed back up
to about 30. Climate control also
stopped working efficiently. Mostly I
like the car, but will switch to Honda
this year as the dealer seems
uninterested in the strange drop in mpg.

Best Features

Computer screen, controls in middle instead of in front of driver - took getting used to, now I like it.
