2013 Toyota PriusDaily Driver - Elk Grove, CA08/22/2015
I commute 160 miles a day to work and run errands so of course my decision to purchase was based primarily on economy (best highway mileage in its class). After 3 months and 16,000 miles I'm now impressed with all the other features that make this car a great value. Styling, comfort, handling, and of course the MPG.
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 PriusAllan Bluewater - Tucson, AZ04/16/2017
Obvious hybrid fuel economy is a definite plus. I was surprised at the power, can go from 75 to 100 to pass long lines of cars without much effort at all. I'm a big truck country kinda guy, and have always hated the Prius out of principle. After driving one for a year while commuting 500 mi a week, I really don't have anything bad to say about it, except the braking. Due to the varying friction from the charging mechanism, your brake pedal pressure will never be consistent and smooth braking is almost impossible, with slow braking to, say a stop light. Hard, emergent braking is unaffected.
