Prius C sporty ride with Great MPG

2012 Toyota Prius c Goldfish Sport Driver - , 06/28/2013

This car is well built with excellent maintenance history. The stock model initially had slower pickup for merging into traffic; however, I replaced the stock air filter cartrage (basicly a horsepower choking HEPA air filter) with a K&N air filter cartrage and imediately had the pickup I wanted and the confidence to merge into traffic with no worry about faster vehicles forcing me out of the merg. Also I experienced increased MPG of between 5-10% depending in how often I floored it at the lights for the fun of it and not because I felt I had to. With this $58.00 modification the car handled with great performance and achieved 58-64 MPG on long trips where I maintained speeds of between 50-55 on average and 52-58 MPG driving 65-70 on interstate. I have actualy seen up to 70 MPG city after the first 5 miles with some 25-35 mph EV. The catalitic converter warm up cost MPG during the first 5 miles during winter and the first mile summer. I will say this that my first 6000 miles in the new car while breaking it in mpg was below expectation but this was directly related to the car breaking in and since getting past that stage the car has never had mpg as low as EPA claims.

Great car, great drive, great on gas!

Needs a switch

2012 Toyota Prius c Marylander - Maryland 11/18/2012

Love this car, but it desperately needs a switch to enable one to shut off the light in the rear storage area. When you lift the hatch, the light goes on, and there is no way to turn it off other than shutting the hatch. Small oversight, but very annoying.
