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.
Good car with some quirks: So-so heater, backseat vent that should not be blocked.
2012 Toyota Prius vLiz - Naperville, IL01/13/2015
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.
Love Getting 40MPG
2012 Toyota Prius vBill Bois - Nashville, TN12/28/2016
The primary reason to buy a Prius is the fuel economy, but there are many other things to like about the v. The passenger cabin is roomy and comfortable, and the cargo space is massive for a car this size. Some people complain about road noise, but I just turn the stereo up. My only complaint is the heating system seems a little weak. The air conditioning was fine last summer, but the heater seems to take a long time to warm the entire cabin.
