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


I bought my '08 Prius, Package II, in March '08. Lifetime average has been 47MPG with over 18k miles/year and mostly highway mileage. It does tend to do 2-5 mpg less in winter. Have owned cars for over 21 years now and this stands out as best car ever for getting from A to B as well as errands. Amazing and misleading amount of storage space.

Best Features

Excellent MPG, Storage space, technology extras such as the keyless entry.

Worst Features

Needs an adjustable lumbar support and Toyota should supply an approved hitch for bicycle racks; understand it can't tow anything but owners have to go to other companys to buy a hitch to haul a bike - of course it also fits inside!
