What's not to love?
By Barbara on


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


I have driven this car from Eastern Iowa to central CO where I now live. We don't gas up until Kearney, NE and not again until be arrive home (over 900 miles). Just drove to WI and averaged over 50 mpg. If it is very windy that will be slightly lower. Have put bicycles and camping gear in the back. The orig. tires weren't so hot so now it has Nokians which are great going up snowy mountains and hills without a problem. Everyone who rides in it is impressed by its quality + comfort. They are amazed by how many miles I get on one tank. Wouldn't have anything else and will get another in one or two years.

Best Features

Gas mileage (drive to Denver and get 60 mpg), smart key, navigation system which is a safety feature for me when in a city, controls on steering. Love looking straight ahead over the steering wheel to read my speed without having to glance away from the road.

Worst Features

Improve the substance that covers the glove box etc. That and the upholstery fabric may be better since I bought mine.
