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.
Average weekly fuel costs way down! :)

Anyone who enjoys commuting in comfort for a very reasonable price should seriously consider a Prius IV, heated leather seats, JBL sound system with audio port for MP3, AND a CD player, thermostatic temperture control, very low fuel consumption, need I say more?
Love this car!

Love this car. It drives smooth and fantastic on gas. Going from $65.00 a week in gas in my old car to $18.00 average is a real plus. Love Sirius radio too. Only thing I don't care for is the nav system. Hard to see streets in white lettering against grey background. Not easy to use either.
