Superb family car in almost every aspects
I've only had this car for two weeks, and I might be up for some surprises, reading the overall reviews of this car. But this car has done 55000 km now, latest service at 43000 km, and no major problems. When I got it, just a parking light bulb was broken, and some tyre wear.
Everything else works perfect... for now.
I'm no race driver, and I'm never gonna be in this vehicle. The automatic clutch gearbox has to take the blame. It' s a little bit to slow. Works better with manual shift paddles. Otherwise, the engine is smooth and silent. Compare to my previous Prius, this ain't much noisier, and the Prius was relatively quiet most of the time. No asthmatic seizures at high revs either.
Comfort and space is the key in every aspect of this vehicle. You feel like a toy riding a cat in slow motion.
No voice controlled GPS or backing up cam like in my previous Prius, but the mirrors adjust automatically when you put it in reverse, and it's easier to get what you want by pushing a button, than argue with a robotic voice for ten minutes.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
