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.
First of all the reliability rating is fantastic. Even the battery lasts for the life of the car per consumer reports. Great gas mileage. Surprisingly roomy inside for a small car. Maneuverability is great which makes it easy to park with a tight turning radius. I love the way the cockpit is arranged. Very comfortable to drive. Quiet inside for a small car without a high end brand name. Adequate trunk space for a small car as well.
I owned a hand-me-down 2005 Prius (first generation) for years and never had any problems with it. Shame on me for not doing sufficient research into the differences between the first and second generation Prii. It is a COMPLETELY different car. Do EXTENSIVE test drives with this car on several types of surfaces. The visibility in this car is so bad it feels unsafe: major blindspots. Virtually non-existent suspension; hits every bump like it was a pothole. Rattles like crazy, especially on rough road and at high speeds. Cheap plastic interior components. Poor turning radius. Deafening road noise. Worst of all, it gets nowhere near the gas mileage they claim; I have never gotten more than 40/45 miles on the highway, and never broken 30 city.
