So far we are loving it!
By rkhamilton920 on


2013 Toyota Prius Persona Series Special Edition 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Purchased car last weekend - $27,500 OTD. Last minute decision decided to buy 72 mo/100K extended warranty that included routine maintenance for 48 mo/45K for $1200.

Really enjoying the can so far - it's my wife's first "new car" - she;s always gotten my hand me downs. She drives 100 miles RT to work and she's loving it. I'll update as we own it a bit longer.

Update - 9/13/16: still really like the car. However, gas prices are 30% less than they were when we purchased the car. So the economics of the car probably don't pencil anymore. But the car is still solid and my wife is happy with her small gas bills. Capital purchase probably is off the mark.

Update - 9/13/17: still liking car. only routine maintenance so far. Mileage is typically 44-48 mpg - strong but not outstanding with today's technology. Still think it was a smart buy - even at today's gas prices.

Sounds like the sales people got you good. I payed 23K OTD for a new model two. Extended warranty for a Toyota? Mhh... and how much do you expect to pay for 2 oil changes per year (if you drive 20K/year). But good decision on the car!
