Dependability. Periodic ordinary maintenance, that's it.
Brakes lasted well over 100,000 on my '02, so did the plugs.
Quiet, smooth, and I am getting 55 mpg with my '11 Prius. Exceptional rear seat legroom and overall comfort. My '02 will still be on the road, except it was clobbered and totalled. I had 164k on it, and no question it would have made 250k. ore more. Only needed a waterpump after 150k. Amazing performance by A/C even after 15 years on the road, didn't burn a drop of oil, engine was very peppy for a 1.4 liter, and 50+ MPG was easy to attain. Drove cross country 4 times with no issues whatsoever, and it cruised smoothly at 70-80 MPH. At those speeds, mpg was 40-45, which I still considered outstanding. We have a '13 also.
Love my Prius!

Economical, spacious, beautiful, efficient design and just plain fun to drive. It's a very reliable car that is definitely more than just a pretty face. This is my second Prius. The only reason I traded in my 2009 was that the age of the hybrid battery became a concern for me.
It's Economical, especially in California.

it's economical and you don't have to have it smogged every other year here in California! I have rheumatoid arthritis, and my hands are misshapen and painful, and it's the easiest car for me to drive! I don't have to turn a key in the ignition; with the smart key, I just push a button on the dashboard to start it, and I open the locked driver's door by putting my hand into the handle. It is complex and expensive to maintain.
