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


We bought our Prius on the last work day sat. feb 27, 2010 and got a great deal. It was quota time and with all the recall
news on Prius we ended up saving $4,200.
We also found a Toyota dealer
on line to get and extended factory
warranty for $820. as opposed to the dealers $1399. After some 7,000 miles we were amazed to get some 53mpg warm weather and around 47 in the Ohio cold. Very pleased with the mialage.
We have never driven in anything but ECO gear.
We will replace our 2004 Pontiac Vibe (Matrix) with a new Prius once we see what the new ones have to offer. The Vibe has been excellent but is now obsolete.
My daughter will take it over.

Best Features

We like the solor roof and the GPS altho were still learning it (300+ pages) Our Garman plug in is less complicated. The trunk space like our Vibe is very spacious especially when dropping down the seats. The synthetic oil is a nice touch since we dont have to take it in till 10,000 miles. It may cost more but not as often. The mialage is a big plus for us since we drive to Pa. and WVa. casino's. We fill it up and have pleanty of gas to drive around on when we get back....amazing. Our passengers compliment the Prius on it being quiet and roomy comfortable especially on a long trip.

Worst Features

The plastic finish scratches especially around the point of securring the seat belt. In the III you have to turn on and off the headlights. We did'nt have to do that in our older models of Toyota's, thus we now have to remember to turn them on and off. I believe the IV has auto headlights but we did'nt want leather seats.
