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


First of all, the mileage is great. I don't know if I'll ever break even but time will tell. Happiness is only buying 9 gallons of gas at the pump so by that perspective, I'm a happy camper.

Best Features

I like all the high tech components in this car and I have plenty of head and leg room.

Worst Features

I wish Toyota could make this car look more like a regular car such as the Hybrid Camry. (I really like that car, I may trade up.) The other problem I have is with traction in icy condition. The car gets confused when it senses slippage and it shuts off. Waiting for a TSB from Toyota on this one.
