Can't Beat the Prius
By Clogdancer on


2003 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I had my pristine 92 XLE Camry ripped
off and totalled. I went to my
dealership in search for a used Prius.
They are rare. One pulled in: Emerald
Gold flake. I could not believe our
luck. It had every option. It looked
new on the interior and exterior. It
handles GREAT! Very small turning
radius! Plenty of pep. This is not a
whimpy Echo. Did you know that going
from 30 to 60 MPH, the Prius can beat
a Porche? The 2002 Prius is a tried
and true design. The example I
purchased is quieter than the top-of-
the-line Camry XLE, or Avalon.

Best Features

Tight and nimble handling. Sips gas. Comfortable seats. Larger than a Corolla. A Trunk It has torque to handle 4 grown adults w/no performance difference. Safe, reliable, handling like a sport car, nimble, sips gas when not using the batteries. 50-75 MPG on any day.

Worst Features

The seat needs an armrest for both the passenger and driver. A taller center console would be great. No other improvements.
