2011 Toyota Prius Three 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I love my Prius for many reasons, The back seat has a ton of room, I get between 40 -46 MPG depdning on weather and it is a really fun car to drive in. I call it my "space ship car". The downside is the rattles! I know it is not a luxury car but i think that Toyota can do a much better job preventing these rattles. I am not sure I would have bought this car if I had known about this issue. It does NOT get 48 mpg either. It gets about 40 in wet and up to 46 in dry weather. That is city/mixed driving in rush hour traffic. I think the dash board lay out can use some improvement as well. After driving for a couple of years, I still find myself searching for buttons

Best Features

The interior space, comfortable seats for the most part, and great handling and gas milage.

Worst Features

The rattles! And the breaks are not consistant when you try to break. You get used to it but it's really unnerving when you try to stop and the breaks are either lighter or rougher than expected. Still happening after 2 years of ownership so I am use to it now.
