2007 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I've owned the car for a month and will review again but for now I love it. At current gas prices ($2.60) I save $1,300 and was surprised to find it is $250 cheaper to insure than a 2003 forester worth a 1/3 the price of an 07 prius. As far as I am concerned it will save me $1500 plus a year x 5 years = $7500 of the $16,000 I paid. I do not consider myself a tree hugger type. If it were an uncomfortable econobox I would not have bought it. That said I do feel good about cutting my gasoline consumption in half.

Best Features

The computer that trains me in the art of driving like a grandma, mpg's, bluetooth phone, ipod attachment to stereo and steering wheel controls and side curtain airbags. The leather seats are great as well.

Worst Features

Rear visibility is poor and the paint chips easily.
