The Prius is an agile and comfortable car with extraordinary fuel economy. I get around 45-50mg. I drive it daily to and from work. an almost 60 mile commute. The oil changes are a little more expensive than a conventional car. I found them at between $45-$120 per change. I believe that the car could use a bigger fuel tank, though. And, It's a little loud in the cabin. Other, than that. I really love the car.
2012 Toyota PriusKarl L - Los Angeles, CA10/16/2016
I owned a hand-me-down 2005 Prius (first generation) for years and never had any problems with it. Shame on me for not doing sufficient research into the differences between the first and second generation Prii. It is a COMPLETELY different car. Do EXTENSIVE test drives with this car on several types of surfaces. The visibility in this car is so bad it feels unsafe: major blindspots. Virtually non-existent suspension; hits every bump like it was a pothole. Rattles like crazy, especially on rough road and at high speeds. Cheap plastic interior components. Poor turning radius. Deafening road noise. Worst of all, it gets nowhere near the gas mileage they claim; I have never gotten more than 40/45 miles on the highway, and never broken 30 city.
Best Car I Ever Bought

Aside from the great gas mileage, there are more reasons to buy this car:
1: it's deceivingly roomy! I have long legs and so my seat goes all the way back. There is still plenty of leg room for a grown adult in the back. And all the seats are very comfortable.
2: the back storage area is very large - I can put all of my work tools and cases back there without sacrificing any passenger room. As I said earlier, these cars are deceptively roomy inside.
3: the electronics in this car are top notch. In my opinion, no other car maker does blue tooth systems better than Toyota. My iPhone works flawlessly in this car.
