2010 Toyota Prius III 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Replaced 230K mile Camry which hardly made 25 MPG and lots of repair cost at the end.
It drives high 40's (46 to 49 MPG) in winter weather.
Cannot wait for warm weather to test Sunroof/fan feature.
It drives fine at highway, and corners very well (not much leaning).

Best Features

GPS, NAV, Handsfree Bluetooth, iPods connection and Satelite radio. Navigation system is not as easy as Garmin. Locking/unlocking feature by just touching a handle. Headlight is much brighter. Gas Mileage is great. It saves me almost half for gas. Seat is much mroe confortable than even 2011 Camry.

Worst Features

JBL sounds horrible in bass. It was much better in old Camry. Big dissapointment. I don't ask JBL to sounds like Bose, but all bass sounds vague and hollow. I had to reduce bass sounds in EQ. Beeping inside a car when in reverse gear does not make sense. I'm not the one standing behind the car. Look-up you. hind the car! Look-up display for switches at steering wheel is half way idea. It does not even display the level of temperature or volume or channels., and it became a meaningless feature.
