2007 Toyota Prius 2 1.5 from North America


At 267,000+ miles, this is an awesome vehicle, worth every penny


Replaced 3 front wheel bearings. Two were due to a minor fender bender in the first year of ownership. Total cost was a hair over $1000.00 for all three.

General Comments:

Still drives incredible after all these years. My only complaint is with the driver's seat not being very comfortable after about 200 - 300 miles of driving on a long trip.

2007 Toyota Prius T3 1.5 petrol from UK and Ireland


Totally reliable, economical, fast and comfortable


Nothing has gone wrong.

At 30000 miles, the brakes were serviced with new discs.

General Comments:

Not the armchair comfort of the Volvos, but very good.

I am 77 years of age, and have owned many cars, starting with an Austin 7 Swallow 1930 vintage. The Prius is my only one bought brand new.

Touring Europe, I can drive 300 miles per day without any discomfort.

2007 Toyota Prius Executive 1.5 hybrid from Norway


The easiest drive available


One of the tail lights is not sure if it's gonna work or not.

Some problems with central door locking in cold weather; fixes itself above zero.

A creaky sound at the brakes just before stopping.

Some interior creaks.

Parking sensors in front beeping all the time (when turned on).

I'm having heavy arguments with the voice controlled GPS. Especially when debating what temperature we're going to have in the car.

General Comments:

Despite some minor irritations this is overall a very nice, if a little dull car to drive. Very well equipped.

Silent running, but at high revs it sounds like a dustbuster, with a hint of sewing machine and a electric shaver. Weird exterior, but you get use to the "pregnant Celica" look.

Spacious inside for 5 adults. Because of the sloping rear, luggage space is limited. Seats are nice, but could have been better on long trips.

Interior is otherwise practical and functional in its futuristic ways. Some plastic feels a bit "CD cover" like.

Cheap to drive, but not cheaper than a diesel. Uses 10-15% more per mile than written on the paper, and up to 20% more in the winter.

Traction control useless up icy hills. You just stand there and nothing happens, and you can't turn it off.

Very light steering, but not very accurate. Feels like you're driving in pudding on twisty roads. Strong brakes, but there are cars with better road holding.

Lots of airbags is a plus. You're gonna need it when a cowboy with a Suburban runs over you.

Very very good



General Comments:

After much debate between this and a small diesel for my commute to work, and after a test drive, I plumped for the Prius.

Having driven for a short while I am glad I went for this.

The car is excellent, spacious, so if I do have to drop the kids off there is plenty of room.

The foot parking brake took some getting used to, just different to what I was used to.

The economy is superb, currently @ 58 mpg, I think because I am being ultra conscious on the driving style!

Driving in traffic is a dream, as it has plenty of power to keep up, and it cruises happily at the Motorway limits.

Overall very impressed.

Inaccurate fuel gauge makes driving a challenge


The fuel gauge is extremely inaccurate.

It won't budge off of full until you've driven at least 150 miles, and when it gets down near the end, you can never tell how much fuel or range you have left. It is very easy to run out of gas in this car.

I would not recommend this car to anyone because of this problem.

Maybe you should have that checked out. A faulty fuel indicator can be fixed.

It's been my experience that many cars have this issue to some degree as a result of irregularly shaped gas tanks or the length of the filler tube. Many people will top the tank to the rim keeping the sensing unit floating at the upper limit of it's range.

Most mechanics will recommend you never let a fuel injected vehicle go below 1/4 tank. The fuel sending unit in the tank uses the gasoline to keep coll and prevent wear and burnout.

Thanks for the tip, I will keep in mind if when I buy one.
