Good: Comfortable motorway cruiser
Bad: interior trim is a little cheap looking
Comment: I've had the T3 model as a company car since September 2010 and I haven't looked back. I drive at least 75 miles a day and the Prius has made it a more comfortable easier experience.
If you press the Eco button on around town the MPG figures are brilliant.
It is also quite fast, people are often surprised to see me overtake them on the motorway and not everyone is too happy to be overtaken by a Prius but that is their narrow minded view of the car.
I can't imagine going back to a conventional petrol or diesel car after this.
Good: Fantastic way to drive, free motoring around town, traffic jams aren't so bad
Bad: Takes some getting use to. Auto parking is flashy but awkward.
Comment: If you're thinking I'm some green tree hugger, you're wrong. I've had 320bhp Imprezas before now but despite the grin a minute motoring I got fed up of the local petrol station sending me fan mail...no! I've had this car for two months now and must say I'm converted. It's just like Church, you either go with it or resent those who do...
It makes you drive in a whole new way you start to look further ahead whilst driving and don't charge up to traffic lights that are at red...I was overtaken by a hot head recently who resented the fact that I wasn't racing between lights but all he did was wait at those lights only for me to pass him as I was still rolling as the lights changed.
All the tech is a ilttle daunting for those who don't spend a day learning how it all works at night it lights up like the enterprise, but even my techno phobic wife likes the satnav, audio, auto box and silent wafting from place to place. I went to the dealership after asking a woman in a car park about hers and without provocation she said 'I'll never buy another car'. I know what she means. I've contracted out of the rat race and just enjoy driving from A to B...
Good: Quite, roomy, great sound system,fantastic Gas milage, great braking system, good handing car
Bad: Battery too small
Comment: At first I was skeptical about leasing a Prius hybrid but I save on average of $100.00 a month in gas from my GAS Hog Guzzling Toyota Sienna Van which offsets my car payment. With the money I save, in gas, it is like leasing this car for $89.00 USD a month! This is one fantastic car! Rides great too. I like how quite it is. It is my favorite car of any car I have ever driven or owned.
