Prius is perfect for me!

I travel between 500 and 700 miles per week for work and I needed a car with great gas mileage. This is IT! I love that I am truly averaging 43+ miles per gallon, and I do a lot of interstate driving. I know the mileage is a little better for City traffic but this is saving me a lot of money on gas -- really key with prices continuing to rise. It took a while to get comfortable with the navigation system (not as friendly or easy to program as my Garmin) but it has some great features like voice control. I love the Bluetooth making my cell phone hands-free and the climate control where I choose a temperature -- much better than a guess-gauge for comfortable driving. The only drawback I have found so far is the cargo capacity. There is a 810 lb limit for passengers and luggage which means I cannot use this for camping vacations for my family of 4. I also wish there was more flexibility with the driver's seat positioning but I am learning to adapt. I would highly recommend a Prius to anyone looking for a car. Great value overall.

Definitely get this car

I originally purchased a 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid, and I really wish I had picked the Prius to begin with, but live and learn. The Honda had the worst transmission known to man and was a death trap when trying to accelerate onto a highway, as the 0-60 was realistically around 20-25 seconds. Also, the EPA estimate was 40-44mpg, and I never saw better than 33! There is actually a class action lawsuit over this topic in California. This lead me to take the car back and get a Prius. The only negative that I have about the Prius is the seat rides a little bit high, but that is it! The best MPG I've recorded so far is 56.23MPG! Quite a big jump from the Honda! The lowest I have seen is 40...which still blows my mind! The power that the Prius has is really amazing! It's really fun to drive and feels like you are driving a spaceship. I regularly drive 350+ miles a week commuting to work and back, and I usually fill up about every 8-10 days depending on how hard I drive. The battery is covered through Toyota for 8 years and 105,000 miles, and transfers to new owners, so no need to worry about that failing. I have heard of people really wanting their batteries to die so that they can get the new Plug In battery installed, but they are having no problems and are at 250,000 miles and above. I would definitely recommend this car to a friend, as the car is awesome. I definitely see myself using this car until the wheels fall off, and then buying another Prius.

Toyota Pirus

The Toyota Prius is great for gas mileage, and it has a lot of gadgets and neat gizmos but the seats are too small for adults, they provide no thigh support at all and it has a rather large blind spot to the rear and sides in back. Very dangerous in my opinion.
