2012 Toyota Prius Five 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I lease, always get 15,000 miles.
Got car in Florida and full pack with 6 months of gear including 2 sets of golf clubs got 50 mpg or more. I was totally amazed.
Prior to that I had a hybrid from another Japanese automaker and milking it on a trip I got 44 maybe.
The Prius actually does just as good stop and go driving and with the a/c on.
I maybe get a tow bar to carry bikes, I know my other car go 10 mpg less with the bikes on, really underpowered dud. I am hoping the Prius can handle them.

Best Features

Favorite feature is less trips to the gas pump, on the negative side is the rear visibility is bad looking through the rea view mirror. I guess you can't have everything.

Worst Features

I'm no engineer, but maybe get rid of the bar in the hatch so it does not block your view. I for one actually look in the rear view mirror and drive accordingly.
