2013 Toyota PriusBrittany L - Greenbelt, MD02/27/2017
This car gets great gas mileage, which is why I was particularly interested in this model. I have always owned SUVs in the past because I am very tall and hate having to hunch over or lay all the way back with my knees in my chest like in most cars. But the Prius is shockingly comfortable. My boyfriend (who is 6'4) and I did a 10 hour road trip the first month I had this car and we were amazed not only at the gas mileage, but at how well the car held up through a freak snowstorm, rain, and driving over the mountains, all while being super comfortable. I never thought I would say it, but I honestly love my little Prius.

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.
Awesome commuter car!

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.
