I used to be a car nut when I finally realized, why drive a BMW or Infiniti to have something sporty when I'm communing to work and want to get from point A to B. As a result, I decided value and versatility were my driving focus with this car. It's about the size of a small SUV but 40 mpg in the winter and nearly 50 mpg in the summer. It a pleasure to fill the tank because it's never cost more than $35 to fill up.
It is more fun to drive then given credit (like my 80's Golf/Rabbit), and has plenty of room for 4 adult men. If you don't mind the engine/CVT droan when accelerating hard, it's actually very quiet in normal conditions. 200k is my expected ownership life and think it can be achieved.
Great hauling & mileage with good comfort & power
2013 Toyota Prius vJohn Hall - Charlotte, NC08/01/2015
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.
I Love this Car
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.
