Love my Prius but would I get another? Not sure. There are some things I would like to see different. There are no "roof gutters". When I go to honk the horn in an emergency I usually hit the steering wheel controls for the a/c etc. But the gas milage is, of course, excellent. Be a conservative driver and you will get 50 to 70 mpg. I range 53 in mixed driving and when I do flat freeway and set the cruise control I can get 67mpg on a tank. Impressive.
I had always assumed that hybrid cars would seem light and tin like because they are so fuel efficient. That was an incorrect assumption. This car is solid. You can hear that when you close the door and is is evident as it holds the road. This is evident as you are enjoying 50 miles per gallon. My wife and I have always had two cars during our 40 years of marriage, but this one is the best.
With just one head-to-toe, roof-to-wheel glance at the style and shape of my Prius, I was already smitten. Its unique, highly-domed shape makes it stand out, and more roomy inside. Its long, sleek front window also makes it very aerodynamic. Prius runs partially on electric, so when I come to a stop the gas engine completely shuts off and the electric motor keeps everything running smoothly with absolutely no delay pulling out. It's amazingly quiet, and starts with the push of a button--no keys! It's like driving a toy! No fumbling to get out the remote to open the door either, as just having it anywhere on you is all it takes. I simply touch the door handle and it opens. I like to tell people, "it knows me." The car is extremely strong and gives a powerful highway performance. A friend who has owned many cars asked to drive it, and also commented on how strong the car feels. Actually--everyone has been asking me to drive it, even if just around the block. Other bells and whistles include self-defrosting mirrors, numerous glove compartments and secret storage hiding spots. The back of the car itself is very roomy and the seats fold down to transport as much loot as you like with an added cool feature of a fake rug cover that pulls out and attaches over your stuff so nosey walkers-by can't see what goodies you got through the back window. And the cherry on top is the touch screen display panel. It gives you a trip planner, tells you your fuel consumption among other goodies including a back-up camera. It's fun watching a live video of my back-up skills without turning my head. But most importantly, because my Prius girl runs partially on electric, the car is helping save the planet, while saving my wallet.
