Loved it at first, now I absolutely hate this car.

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


Don't get me wrong, the Prius is a great car to get from A to B.
But it has so many faults, mostly in the way it drives, that I had to get rid of it after 30,000 miles.
For efficiency of fuel and space, it's unmatched.
It's roomy and gets great mileage.
But... The auto on/off of the engine is choppy, the brake feel is eneven, rock hard seats, the steering is numb, the ride is harsh, there are a ton of rattles throughout the car, and the car feels like it weighs twice what it does.
Just a terrible driving experience.
I was getting about 39 mpg consistently.
No reliability issues whatsoever.
But in the end, life is too short to drive a car like this.
That's why I got rid of it.

Best Features

Good, not great gas mileage. Excellent interior space. Adults fit comfortably in the back.

Worst Features

Softer seats, better drivability, softer ride, tighten up the rattles.
