- fuel economy we get 41.5 mpg combined.
-very peppy especially in power mode.
-lots of space of an SUV.
- radio controls a little confusing.
- key fob doesn't always recognize and car won't say READY so we need to restart the sequence.
- It's comfortable but a little tight. If we have a third person in the back seat they are a little squeezed.
A gem in the rough
2012 Toyota Prius vWD D - Cranberry, PA05/17/2016
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.
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.
