Wipers and power points
By jtjtruth on


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


For the most part the Prius is a good vehicle. The most annoying thing is the Wiper control and placement. It is to easy to hit and start a real circus of front and rear wipers. Secondly with a vehicle that is one big battery, Why was it designed to kill the power to the power charge points when the vehicle is off. This is completely illogical and quite annoying in today's use of so many required electronics.

Best Features

Quick little car.

Worst Features

Increase braking ability. Severely under braked. Really dangerous. Move the wiper control include always on Power points.
