Love it for what it is - No regrets!
By boeserkritiker on


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


The seat fabric is cheap. Not sure how it will hold up. The clove box seems to rattle a little sometimes. But other than that it seems like a fine built car and a great deal for what you get and being a hybrid. Paid 23k OTD. Average 56.5 miles per computer, calculated 2 miles less. I accelerate and slow down smoothly and stick to speed limit. It's not a sports car but I love it for what it is. It should be cheaper in the long run than another compact car if the hybrid system doesn't cause additional expensive repairs and comes with more features. The off-center 'gauge' cluster doesn't bother me. the speed, etc is actually easier to read being much higher up than standard clusters.

Best Features

I'm 6'-2. I'm quiet comfortable in any seat. The head just touches the rear window when I lean my head back in the rear seat to take a nap. In the beginning I spent way too much time staring at the displays while driving - you'll get over it. Bluetooth had a few times trouble connecting but mostly works fine. Love touch sensors on door, touch screen control panel, push button start. Gear joy stick is cool, but I'm not sure why it shifts the car in reverse when you push it forward rather than the other way around?! Trunk space is ok for daily use, but will get a roof rack with cargo bag for long road trips happening 3 times a year. if you need more space all the time spent the extra 4K on a V

Worst Features

Better seat covers. What is the beeping in reverse good for?
