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


I owned this car for three and a half years, used about 60,000 miles and it was awesome until it rained, snowed or was windy at all. I felt completely unsafe, and scared during any storm or driving on snow. The seats were decently sized, but hard as rocks. The gas mileage was the reason I bought it, and that stayed true to what was said about how great it was. I ended up buying a Honda SUV because this car scared me so much to drive even on a sunny day with lots of wind. I now feel so much safer, and would never purchase another small Toyota again.

Best Features

Touch screen, storage room, trunk size, looks from the outside, "futuristic" effects of the design.

Worst Features

Lack of power, bad in wind, rain or snow, unsafe during weather, seats are hard, many shops did not know how to get the "maint. needed" sign to turn off after getting an oil change.
