147,000 miles so far, zero problem
By jimmybirdie on
Vehicle2008 Toyota Prius Standard 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewI am an extreme commuter and I would not have been able to do this without my beloved Prius. After 4 years I have about 147,000 miles on the car and have had zero problem so far. I average about 47 - 54 mpg depending on how fast I drive. If I drive 75 mph I will get about 45-47 mpg. If I drive 65 mph I would get around 52 mpg.
I still have the original brakes and my mechanic told me that it still has 75% of life left. This is due to regenerating braking and my most highway driving.
The OEM tires lasted 60k miles. I replaced them with the Michelin HydroEdge tires and after 87k they are still good for another 20k miles according to my mechanic.
Best Features50+ mpg back-up camera utility of hatch back design engine off at intersections/drive thrus smart key
Worst FeaturesBetter comfort with driver and passenger seats.
