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


As a 1st gen hybrid Toyota has done a
superb job. If you are curious about
the other manufactures reports check
out the Dept of Energy web site and
compare the notes yourself, Toyota
leads the others by 10yrs in
development this car has been
operational on the roads since '97 in
Japan and available in the US
since '01. Seating 5 pax and an
excellent commuter, I would recommend
this car to anyone who loves to save
money with an 11.9gal tank I got 485
miles on one tank, and average about
40.2 mpg my last 3000 miles I have
driven. Given that I drive hard and
fast that’s great for a lead foot, the
car maxes out at 101mph.

Best Features

The car is loaded w/power locks, windows, and tilt/cruse. Built in cpu w/the touch screen features and w/radio cont built in. The climate cont are just like the big lux models. The doors open really wide . Like the Corolla in size/handling lots of leg/head room.

Worst Features

The only thing that Toyota needs to incorporate in the next gen is the ability to drive off battery power if you run out of gas. A folding rear seat would increase your ability to carry long items easier.
