Meryl Streep is right!

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


Meryl Streep (who owns a one) asks "why

doesn't everyone drive a Prius?" Toyota

engineering brilliance has seen to it

that there's no sacrifice to getting 50

mpg. This is a solid, comfortable,

roomy, powerful, well-made sedan that

delivers the mileage Toyota says it


Best Features

The engine shutting down when stopped or in low-power situations is great. When I'm sitting in traffic or at a stoplight, it's good to know that I'm not generating pollution for no reason.

Worst Features

I'd like to see Toyota make the same configuration available in the US that is available in the Prius in most of the rest of the world: fold-down rear seats and rear disc brakes.
