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


I bought the Pruis in 2006 for $27000. It only has a few options (Stability control, side airbags, ect.), but the dealer forces you to pay $2000-3000 over MSRP. Since I bought the car I've had to replace the batteries twice and the interior has fallen apart worse than the 1998 Ford Escort I was replacing. Even the gas mileage hasn't been great, because the batteries don't work properly in cold weather. The worst part however is the driving experience, the Pruis has a serious shortage of power and has no steering feel. I found the brakes very weak and delivered almost no pedal feel. The seats are also very uncomfortable. I find the ride rough and the whole car shudders over all bumps.

Best Features

Innovative computer monitoring system.

Worst Features

The styling, quality, performance, comfort, powertrain, and reliability all need to be improved.
