2008 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I've wanted a Prius for years, but haven't acted on it because of the unavailability (so it seems). Then I saw one at a local car lot. Since my daughter recently started driving, I jumped on it so I could give her my old Volvo. I didn't get a screamin' deal, but it was the color I loved and low mileage for a used 2008 Prius. (Supposedly, the former owner was a big guy and didn't feel comfortable in it.) As for me, I love it! It's a blast to drive, sturdier than I thought, mileage is excellent (55-58 mpg around town), and comfortable. The front window is like a big screen t.v. I drive slower too which is a good thing for me. I've not had buyer's remorse at all. I'm very pleased with this car.

Best Features

High mileage, good warranty on batteries, when in electric drive mode, mica color, solid feel (for a Toyota), steering wheel size and grip, computer screen, has arm rest, the view out the front window

Worst Features

Speaker quality, make it easier to get leather interior, iPod setup and back bumper protector are standard features
