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


I was a bit concerned with the added complication of hybrid technology.
But historically the
Prius has been one of most reliable cars on the road.
I've never see mention of battery pack failure and they seem to last far beyond their guaranteed life span.
I enjoy driving the car.
The steering wheel is a bit of a reach even with the telescoping column.
I cannot get the seats situated where I can spend an extended time driving.
I'm 6'1" but because of the steeply raked windshield I have to position the seatback rearward before I can comfortably see under the top edge of the windshield.
The pressure on my tailbone quickly becomes uncomfortable.
I'd still buy a Prius again, though.
