STUPID CAR - very disappointed!!!!!

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


I bought this car in march 08, and two months later, there are countless dents from the smallest branches and acorns, it has dinky wheels, and the ugliest design, plus the brakes got really squeaky by June of 08 and Toyota told me there is nothing they could do. Toyota is the worst car company ever, I made a HUGE mistake, I should have bought a Jeep Patriot instead, it has more style, still has good gas mileage, and is a hell of a lot more durable than this junk!

You know the wheels are small and the design is what it is why did you buy it? Regenerative braking feels a little different from normal braking but it is nothing to complain about. The good thing about the Prius you will like is the resale value is very good compared to cars like Jeep Patriot. You should sell it to someone who appreciate the Prius for what it is. I have been driving my 2008 Prius for 100,000+ miles and have had zero problem.
