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.
Love my Prius!

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.
