I purchased my Prius after driving my Honda Civic for 15 years so... I was a little worried that I would miss the Honda quality. I must say Toyota has done a great job with this car. My only compaint would be a few of the dealer installed options were less than advertised (minor issues) I think this is only a local dealer problem. I love the gas mileage. I get approximately 47-50 mpg with mixed but equal city/highway driving. I am actually getting better mileage as I learn to take advantage of things like coasting, engine brake and it is possible that this car makes me a safer driver. The Prius has plenty of power when you need it and I never feel like I will get "squashed" by faster (gas-guzzlers). Overall a great value and I am certain it will provide me with years of gas-saving enjoyment.
My Prius is the second hybrid I've owned. I traded in a Ford Escape Hybrid. While I loved my Escape, I wanted even better mileage. My Prius has not disappointed. I'm averaging 47 mpg and I do most of my 21-mile commute at freeway speeds. This little car has great get-up-and-go. I can go 0 to highway speed very quickly to safely merge onto a highway full of urban road warriors. It's very maneuverable, too. One of the gadgets on my model is the back-up camera. Frankly, that's kind of a waste on a car with such a big rear window area. Because the car is so low to the ground and because of the split design of the rear window, I'm convinced I could see a garden gnome behind my car. The camera is just a gimmick; I rarely use it other than for amusement value.
I love this car. The gas mileage is amazing. I was a little unsure about getting a Toyota based on the 'road noise' I had experienced in all the other Toyotas I have driven. It isn't that bad in a Prius though. It is a really roomy car that is quite comfortable on long road trips. After I tint the windows, this car will be perfect.
