2009 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


My prius has 10000 miles on it and I average no higher than 36mpg and only 25mpg in the winter. The fuel gauge reads no gas left but when I fill up it only takes 7 gallons to fill its 11.9 gallon tank. The engine is slow, loud, and noisy. For a $30,000 car I expected more. For an extra $5,000 my Subaru Tribeca gets 25mpg highway, power and heated seats, sunroof, AWD, 6 cylinder engine and better safety rating.

Best Features

The engine vibrates so much the floor massages the front passengers seat.

Worst Features

Heated power seats, sunroof, head restraints that are softer than a rock, and better MPG.
