2012 Toyota PriusCarol W - Buena Park, CA04/05/2016
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.
Prius, Just the best car I've ever owned

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.

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.
