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.
Love this car!

Love this car. It drives smooth and fantastic on gas. Going from $65.00 a week in gas in my old car to $18.00 average is a real plus. Love Sirius radio too. Only thing I don't care for is the nav system. Hard to see streets in white lettering against grey background. Not easy to use either.
Perfect commuter car
2011 Toyota PriusJonathan Taylor - Nevada City, CA05/03/2017
I was a little hesitant on becoming one of those "Prius drivers" nobody likes but it's really a great car. There's plenty of room for my 6'3" 230lb self, it's quiet, smooth, comfortable, maintenance free and has enough pep to get down the road. I also love the 50 mpg average I get on my 110 mile daily commute. It cut my fuel consumption in half.
