Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Fun factory add ons (smart key, etc...), good fuel economy...
Cons: Ugly, lots of blindspots that backup cameras can never compensate for, gas gauge never accurate...
The Bottom Line: Worth the price when used...

I bought this fully loaded car certified in November 2010 for $14,999. GREAT DEAL!! I still wouldn't have bought it new given that the interior was made at the same quality as a Toyota Corolla. If you are going to ask luxury prices for a ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Fuel economy, quality of build, ride, quietness, nimble handling, roomy enough for 4 adults.
Cons: Take the climate control out of the onboard computer, add a tachometer.
The Bottom Line: Ask the man or woman who owns one why they would buy another one.

It's obvious to me why Toyota is the number 1 automobile manufacturer in the world. The Prius is head and shoulders above any other hybrid in efficiency and economy while still managing to have the feel of a mid size car. While there are a few things I ... read more

Pros: Touch screen, steering, turn radius.
Cons: Price (for college students) and rear view.
The Bottom Line: Inside is spacious and roomy for a small, hybrid car. Definitely recommend especially if on the market for a hybrid.

Pros: Becoming a little less of a slave to OPEC.
Cons: Very, very few complaints.
The Bottom Line: Gas Mileage, Purchase Price

After driving a small SUV for 4 years and getting about 21 MPG and contributing more and more of my paycheck to OPEC, I decided to do something about it. I seriously considered most cars that get higher MPG and heard all the arguments about the high cost ... read more

Oct 24, 2007 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Best MPG mid size car. Rush hour driving (stop and go or rolling)is free.
Cons: Could use more power when driving up mountains on an interstate at 65/70 MPH
The Bottom Line: Own one. Same same leg room as today's Camry and has the best gas mileage. Toyota reliability! Future gas is likely to be $7 pg. Hydrogen cars? Bill Gates income?

I have had this car since May 2007 and absolutely love it. I have heard and read reviews of some individuals who suggest diesel cars for less money and claim this car doesn't achieve the gas mileage claimed. Well, I am here to tell you that as for me. It ... read more

Pros: Just about everything...,
Cons: Rear window sorta sucks...
The Bottom Line: Hybrid technology was the future 10 years ago this car is the only one that was created and tested for today, the rest are playing catch up

I bought my Prius from a Toyota Dealer on the Oregon coast, drove it to St Louis. Only got about 45mpg but it ran 110 mph sometimes and averaged 70 mph the rest, When I got back to the midwest I was still only getting an average of 45mpg until I got ... read more

2007 Toyota Prius - Did Toyota make a mistake?

by
Aug 17, 2007 - Updated Nov 12, 2010 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Smooth powertrain, gas mileage, all around quality.
Cons: Exterior design, a little more power would be welcomed.
The Bottom Line: Ugly it is, but it's also one of the best cars on the market for under $30,000.

I never did understand the charm of the 1st generation Toyota Prius. The first Prius was small, underpowered, clumsy, and only had a slight advantage in the MPG department than your run of the mill Honda Civic LX or Toyota Corolla. The 2nd generation ... read more

Pros: Environmentally friendly, great mileage, tax rebate, and a nice ride
Cons: Not much flash or snob appeal and not lively on hills
The Bottom Line: A good car, but the 2008 may be worth the wait

Stealth isn't usually one of the considerations for choosing a car, but if it is, the Prius may be just your thing. A good friend has the 2007 model and in conversation mentioned how useful it would have been when sneaking in and out of his girlfriend's ... read more
