2005 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I first became interested in the Prius
after a visit to my dentist left me in
the chair for close to 4 hours. I
happened to read the Motor Trend review
article on the new design and decided
to go look at one. I drive close to
30K miles a year. I have worked in the
automotive industry in the past, so I
knew not to expect that mind-blowing 61
mpg. I wanted to double the 20-22 mpg
that I got on my Buick. I've done a
little more than that and loved every
second. It's a fun car to drive, and
I'm looking forward to more Hybrid cars
homing out in the future. I'll
definitley buy another one.

Best Features

I ordered mine with every available option. I think I love the display the best - I can keep track of mileage and it will tell me how to get to my next appointment.

Worst Features

At this point ... none that I can think of that wouldn't hinder the performance.
