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


This is the most remarkable car I have ever owned. It is economical, roomy, comfortable (I am 6'2" and have heard about how it doesn't fit tall people. Nonsense!), and fun to drive. I love the fact that it delivers great economy without producing tons of emissions while at the same time it is quick off the mark and able to climb mountains without hesitation (I have also heard about its supposed defects in this regard). I replaced the tires with Michelin Energy Savers A/S and saw the economy jump nearly 9%. I highly recommend those tires.

Best Features

Looks, reliability, economy. I regularly get upwards of 52 mpg all around.

Worst Features

I don't like the back-up beep. The touch screen is invisible in bright sunlight. The tires are cheap and wear out quickly. There should be a lumbar support on the driver's side (at least). Heater wont go below 65 degrees. We like it cool in the winter.
