Prius replaced Ford Ranger
By MSDickerson on


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


slight instability at high speeds. Noticed that it accelerated much better than my Ford Ranger. Extremely quite car. Interior misdesigned piece center arm rest is too low. Gear shift hides some controls.
Snow driving was fine being front wheel drive. Used tire chains and still achieved about 40 mpg while chains on car. Plenty of power - CVT is unique in that there is no shifting . It is actually nice though in that as soon as you let off the gas, then engine goes away)..

Best Features

Stealth mode - no engine - no noise - just gliding along getting lots of miles per gallon.

Worst Features

Center arm rest console, move some of the controls for radio/sound console away from behind the shifter.
