2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I just bought a pre-owned 2006 prius with 45K miles on it. Love the car and the features. Drives well and getting 48MPG. Still getting used to the nuances of the car and various noises it's making. Few things to note: 1. I am hearing a noise under the steering wheel when braking/accelerating during city driving. Dealer says its normal. However its annoying me. 2. While discussing the noise issue, dealer found out water pump was leaking. I was surprised it is leaking so soon. Luckily it's covered under power train warranty. Will add more as I drive more.

Best Features

Fuel efficiency, 8 spkr audio system, Bluetooth, Cargo space

Worst Features

make power seats standard, get rid of the hump (arm rest) in the back seat so that five people can sit.
