Great car

BEST car I ever owned. Not the fastest, not the roomiest, not made like a German BMW BUT it gets 45 to 55 MPG and I am spending a ton less on gas. It has enough room in the back, jumps into traffic, climbs mountains and does everything I ask of it for pennies on the gallon. I absolutely love not having to think about "how much gas" I will be using to go hear or there. Has good features, is lightweight but relatively solid. I am going to buy another one to have two...that is a big vote of confidence.

Awesome commuter car!

I commute 160 miles a day to work and run errands so of course my decision to purchase was based primarily on economy (best highway mileage in its class). After 3 months and 16,000 miles I'm now impressed with all the other features that make this car a great value. Styling, comfort, handling, and of course the MPG.

2011 Toyata Prius III

The Prius is an agile and comfortable car with extraordinary fuel economy. I get around 45-50mg. I drive it daily to and from work. an almost 60 mile commute. The oil changes are a little more expensive than a conventional car. I found them at between $45-$120 per change. I believe that the car could use a bigger fuel tank, though. And, It's a little loud in the cabin. Other, than that. I really love the car.
