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


Aside from the great fuel economy my wife and I really like our 2004 Salsa Red Prius. As we have learned to take advantage of the hybrid technology the average mileage has climbed from 45mpg to about 50 now with a lifetime average of about 48. It really does get 51mpg at 65mph on the freeway. The surround sound audio system is great. We got the 6-CD player system. My wife changed her cell phone to one with built in Blue Tooth technology so it could work with the Prius' built in system. Our family is tall. I'm 6'2. My wife is 6'. And our 4 boys range from 6'3 to 6'5. All can sit in the back seat and have plenty of knee room with the front seats in normal position.

Best Features

In order; great mileage, great sound system, very quiet, surprisingly roomy interior, love the GPS map system, and great overall finish.

Worst Features

Add the electric only switch currently available only in Japan.
