2011 Toyota Priusstephen schultz - reno, NV09/16/2016
Dependability. Periodic ordinary maintenance, that's it.
Brakes lasted well over 100,000 on my '02, so did the plugs.
Quiet, smooth, and I am getting 55 mpg with my '11 Prius. Exceptional rear seat legroom and overall comfort. My '02 will still be on the road, except it was clobbered and totalled. I had 164k on it, and no question it would have made 250k. ore more. Only needed a waterpump after 150k. Amazing performance by A/C even after 15 years on the road, didn't burn a drop of oil, engine was very peppy for a 1.4 liter, and 50+ MPG was easy to attain. Drove cross country 4 times with no issues whatsoever, and it cruised smoothly at 70-80 MPH. At those speeds, mpg was 40-45, which I still considered outstanding. We have a '13 also.
Does everything I need it to do.

I'm big, 6' 2". The car has plenty of head and leg room.
I commute 95 miles per day and the Prius handles well, winter, summer; rain, snow, sleet, and dry. It is light and nimble. Using the power button the car's transmission allows the car to accelerate with the engine RPM's held in the highest torque band of the engine. It is surprisingly quick. Turn off the power button and the car get mind blowing mileage; I am averaging between 50 and 55 mpg on my commutes. The heat and AC are excellent. The headlights are absolutely outstanding.
Great car with no deal breakers.

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.
