2012 Toyota Prius vDonald - Roseville, CA03/02/2015
I wanted a Prius because of its outstanding repair record and amazing gas mileage. I was originally looking for a standard Prius. However, after comparing the Prius and the Prius V side by side, I opted for the larger cargo area. I was concerned that with the Prius V, I would have to give up 4 mpg as it is rated at only, (only!) 44 mpg. However, having the Prius V for three months, my average gas mileage is 48.4! Amazing.
Great hauling & mileage with good comfort & power

I previously had a Camry hybrid, and loved it except for the fact that the trunk was a joke. Since I tend to end up carrying a lot of stuff, I had decided that I would get a Prius V when it came time to replace the Camry. I've done so and it works great. The back seats are very flexible for either full sized people, or three dogs, or to carry stuff around. The mileage is very consistently in the low 40s. The cabin is comfortable, but significantly louder than the Camry was. The integration with the iPhone is great and I can listen to my stuff either wired or wirelessly. The pick-up is not zippy. You can floor it and it will get you merged, but it sounds like you are killing it. I generally drive gently, so not a big problem for me.
Good car with some quirks: So-so heater, backseat vent that should not be blocked.

I had a small four-door and needed something larger. This gives me lots of large storage space, without needing a big vehicle. Around-town gas mileage is great 40+. Hwy not as good, only about 32 mpg. Disappointed in the heater, but otherwise very pleased with the car. 6'3" husband fits comfortably and I can reach the petals, I'm 5'4". Lots of cup holders and organizational space and comfortable for long road trips.
