2004 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl CVT)


Great car! Highly recommended. Nothing bad to say. Good performance, lots of torque going up hills, reasonably quiet ride. Gets between 47 and 52 MPG depending on speed. Cruise control works good. Best gas mileage about 67 vs 70 MPH. Replaced original, never rotated, tires at 40K miles because of wear on outside edges. Replaced with Hankook Tires. Would like more comfortable drivers seat. Can't seem to get leg reach to accelerator and arm reach to steering wheel just right.

Best Features

50 miles per gallon of gasoline in comfort, with lots of carrying capacity, quiet ride, stylish design, low emissions, and with excellent performance. Car is reasonably priced, too. No cords to plug in, either.

Worst Features

Need seat height elevation adjustment. Air conditioner and heat are good, but simpler radio and Heater/AC controls would be welcomed. Black hood paint seems to be chipping more than I expected.
