Poor Gas Milage
By Russ Lefevre on


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


I purchased a high end Prius with the all the features in 6/08. Started out getting 46 mpg. to 44mpg.Then 3 month later it went down to 30mpg to 34mpg. tops. Brought back to dealer they checked it out & said they could find anything wrong. My Nav unit reads I'm getting around 36 mpg. But when you do the math after a fill up it's getting 30 to 32 mpg.

Best Features

Handles nicely on the roads.

Worst Features

It does not go in the snow. If you you stop and it's icy or snow the wheels won't spin it just stops in the road. You have to be pushed or your not going any where.
