2013 Toyota PriusRobin Haney - Lincoln, CA10/31/2016
Economical, spacious, beautiful, efficient design and just plain fun to drive. It's a very reliable car that is definitely more than just a pretty face. This is my second Prius. The only reason I traded in my 2009 was that the age of the hybrid battery became a concern for me.
Prius! The car for our family.

Highly economical! Handles well. Plenty of room. Purchased vehicle for the family but our daughter who just started college loves to drive it -- great for college students! Low gas expense and result in plenty of miles out of the small amount of gas that goes into the vehicle.
2012 Toyota PriusKarl L - Los Angeles, CA10/16/2016
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.
