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


My minivan died a week ago and I was forced to buy a new car a year before I really wanted to. I had been looking at the Prius and luckily for me, the dealer had one in stock - my color and package 6. I wasn't sure if I wanted all the extras in package 6, but I'm sure glad I got them. I live in South Florida and have only had the car 5 days, so the air conditioning has been on non-stop (78 degrees) since I got it. I'm on my first full tank of gas, and after about 115 miles I'm averaging just over 50 mpg. Can't wait to see what the mpg is when I don't need A/C (if it ever gets that cool here).

Best Features

GPS is fast and great - must nicer than my old handheld unit. Love to watch the fuel consumption display. I'm a computer geek so all the electronics are a joy for me (smart key, dash, etc.).

Worst Features

I don't care for the split rear window - it's a little difficult to see out the back.
