Love, love, love this car!
I've only had my Prius a short time but I absolutely love it!. The two-phase way it starts takes a little getting used to, especially since it is so whisper-quiet. I have the so-called Level II amenity package so not all of the available bells and whistles but enough for me. I love the constant feedback on the fuel usage/MPG although at first you tend to get so enthusiastic about watching that screen that you have to remind yourself to watch the road! I am consistently averaging nearly 50 MPG with mixed city/highway driving but about 75% highway. This is with the cruise set at 72 mph in general. I know I could do much better at 65 mph but I couldn't bear being flipped off and honked at constantly. The hatchback section is pretty spacious for a small car. My daughter has a manual wheelchair that fits there if we remove the wheels and collapse it just a little. A friend tried to fit an extra-large stroller in and the stroller was too wide in the folded position, so maybe a Camry would be better for that. Several suitcases would go in just fine, and of course, the back seats fold forward for added room if needed. The back seats are pretty standard. More than adequate for kids, comfortable enough for adults, though I don't think I'd want to ride back there on a 1000-mile trip as an adult. The handling and turning radius is typical for a Toyota--extraordinary.
I've owned my Prius for just over two months now and really love it. I knew about the fuel efficiency, etc., but I've been amazed at how roomy and comfortable it is. The spaciousness really sets it apart from the Civic Hybrid, especially.
