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


Review

this car will swallow up a wheelchair, or a 40 gal hot water heater, or a load from Ikea -- beat everything on the interstate (it's the driver, not the car who flinches at speed limits) - and still get near 50 mpg. My car had to carry a wheel chair -- this was the ONLY hybrid (not counting the Chevy light hybrid) that hid the batteries rather than put 'em in a box in the middle of the trunk. You will be able to cruise at 10-15 mph over the speed limit and not get a ticket (except for speed trap cameras...) as cops don't believe a Prius speeds. HOWEVER, the tire noise and wind noise will wear you down and a 800 mile trip will seem like a 1000 mile trip! MAYBE if I had up-trimmed it a bit this would not be an issue -- but around town and for 120 mile trips - not that big a deal. I went from a fill up a week to a fill up a month -- yeah. good value in a car. This will replace the VW beetle as the go to car for college students (fold down the rear seat and it becomes a struggle buggy)

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


Review

Great no-fuss reliable and enjoyable car for commuting, hauling surprising amounts of cargo around town, with great range & fuel economy. Drove it with satisfaction for 8 years. My needs changed (need to tow), and eventually the long distance (2 hour +) seat discomfort led me to sell and upgrade comfort levels, despite loss of some fuel economy. Be aware the factory paint came soft (fragile) finished, and should be hard coated. Dealers & others offer this, so check for it in a used car.

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


Review

This car is a toy. It is unreliable and almost impossible to work on. The mileage when it runs is great but don’t expect much from it. The 12v batteries are expensive and fail often.
