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


If there is one thing, be sure not to leave a door open all night. My son didn't shut my hatch all the way. The next AM, I couldn't start it. And it will not move. You can't just put it in neutral and back it out. You better have an extra long set of jumper cables.LOL. Seriously though, I love the car, it's got great cargo space and very comfortable inside. I got the basic model, one I could afford, and find. They are very hard to come by. What you save in gas and insurance from day one will make up the cost.

Best Features

The screen. You can monitor your useage, mileage and improve your driving habits. My sons love the audio screen. I'm still learning about new bells & whistles... it's a really cool car.

Worst Features

The low voltage battery should be able to pull for the main engine battery in case it goes dead. When that car is dead, there is no way to move it, except to tow it.
