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


Love the Toyota Prius, but the tire wear on the original tires is terrible. I will not have my car serviced at a dealer; Sullivan Tire told me that the rear end needed shimming fresh out of the factory. I confronted the dealer and they said "that may be the case, but Toyota will not do anything about it." The tires need replacing after 32000 miles. The car isn't 2 years old yet and already I have to spend $950.

Best Features

Gas mileage.

Worst Features

Do something about alignment, balancing and admit Toyota messed up.
