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


I bought my 2009 Prius new and have now driven it for almost five years.
It has just over 70,000 miles on it, and so far the only maintenance expenses I've had are oil changes and one new set of tires.
It still has the original brakes and they still aren't showing signs of wear.
I'm not sure why so many others find the car uncomfortable -- I'm six feet tall and have no problems.
I've driven to Florida from Pennsylvania in it and was never uncomfortable.

Minor gripes:
The gas tank does not fill up willingly after it's about 80% full.
You have to coax in the last few gallons little by little.
I don't love its looks, either, but accept that trade-off to average 47 MPG year-round.

Best Features

Fuel economy, reliability, roominess (for its size), easy-to-use touch screen, hatchback versatility

Worst Features

A little bit of style would be nice . . .
