The best car I've ever bought
By diesel power on


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


I purchased my 03 after test driving
the 04 model. I bought the 03 as 6ft
tall adults can fit in the back,
something not possible in the new
model. I now have 16k miles on my car,
and I've had 0 warranty issues with
this car. Lifetime fuel economy so far
is 46.8 mpg. This number keeps
climbing. Toyota has brought us the
future of automobiles.
The rest of the industry needs to take
notice, or risk being left to
oblivion. I routinely drive over 35k
miles annually. I've driven this car
on a 3200 mile round trip from Dallas
TX, to Haliburton, Ontario, and
back. It's performance was nothing less
than stellar.

Best Features

Full hybrid drivetrain, allowing electric only operation. Fuel consumption computer that visually displays how driving styles affect efficiency.

Worst Features

Toyota, PLEASE get rid of that stupid gas tank bladder. Fuelling is a tedious process due to it.
