2010 Toyota Prius II 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Purchased a 2010 to replace a 2008 that we loved. The '10 is an improvement on an already good thing. More comfortable with height adjustable drivers seat. Seat position relative to steering wheel feels right; it felt 'off' in the '08. Combined with wrap around dash/center console, it feels very sporty and comfortable. Engine performance is improved. More power with less noise and improved mpg (52 vs 47). Oil changes a bit of hassle as a plastic underbody shield has to be removed. Special wrench needed to remove oil filter housing. Shield has to be removed to change trans fluid and coolant. Otherwise, trans fluid is straight forward like '08. Coolant can be changed and bled easily by DIYer.

I recently bought this car used at 81,000 miles and to be honest, It is the best 1st car purchase of my life so far. Now, as for get up and go type of traffic the Prius does fine in my opinion.... mpg has been pretty good at 49 to 53 miles per gallon driving in a city and highway mix of traffic. My Prius came with a touch screen and integrated back up camera. The previous car I was driving was an 08 Chevy Malibu and that car got me roughly 28-34 mpg average....Now this Prius or any Prius blows that Malibu away in terms of mpg. Plus, I love filling up about every two to three weeks.
