2008 Toyota Prius Touring from North America
A fine example of affordable clever engineering
Annoying tire leaks fixed after too many dealer visits. Trim strip came off of top. That's it!
Twelve volt battery gave up the ghost after six years. I'm not complaining.
We have 110,000 miles on this thing. It still performs beautifully.
Just installed a set of Michilens after having Bridgestone. MPG dropped, but the ride is much nicer.
I recommend these cars to everyone that needs a reliable daily commuter. I'll probably drive this and park my 2500HD after buying my wife a new Prius.
Note: A payback on the premium paid for a hybrid will take approx. 10 years of ownership. Be advised.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I submitted this, previously. It is now 2019 and the little car is amazingly reliable. I drive it daily 30 miles to work. Not a single issue. 140,000 miles with no issues. I can't imagine a more reliable car. Still wish it was a bit larger, though. I feel like a circus bear riding a tricycle.
