Bought a used touring model
By Mike on


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


Averaging 45mpg. Performance is great for an engine this size and efficient. Paid $16,500 with nav, jbl, touring edition an 36500 miles. The incline of the front of the car causes a lot of bug paint damage to the hood and above windshield. A lot of sunlight inside the car due to the angles of the glass and there is no tint strip at the top of the windshield. Very pleased with gas mileage since my 06 m35 only averaged 19mpg. The car handles better than my $45k infiniti and handles rough roads much better. Seats are more comfortable too. At least the plastic interior looks good for plastic. I love the car and look forward to driving it and with each mile i drive i'm saving for my son's college

Best Features

touch screen display, bluetooth, navigation, gas mileage, suspension, steering, 6 disc changer, aux input for ipod, location of 12v outlet, digital speedometer (keeps me from speeding), keyless entry and remote start

Worst Features

chip resistant paint especially on the hood and right above the front windshield (apply 3m film to the paint), add distance markers to rearview camera, annoying reverse beeping noise, brake pedal feels loose
