Great gas mileage, sweet ride
Something got tripped up on a sensor in the gas tank, but other than that, nothing.
This car actually belongs to my boyfriend's mom, but I like driving it. So it's kinda ugly, not helped by the tan color, but inside it's very attractively and thoughtfully laid out. I have a little trouble figuring out how to adjust the climate controls or the radio to do what I want, but that's OK.
It's surprisingly quick. I was expecting it to creep, especially since the gas engine doesn't even come on until you hit about 15 mph.
It's a very smooth ride. You don't notice the gas and electric engines switching back and forth at all.
Overall I think it's a great car. The gas mileage has been as promised, and you can get five people in it, so it's functional too. His mom had a diesel Beetle before the Prius (she's really into only filling up every three weeks) and I like the Prius better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
