Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"bought my 2009 prius in december of 2015 with 119000 miles. now in april i have 133000 miles. driving it through the winter the mileage wasn't great about 37 mpg. but since the weather got warmer i get about 48 mpg. witch is better than the 20 mpg i was getting in my toyota solara. i have had an on going problem witch even stumps the toyota techs. my fuel system has a issue with measuring the amount of fuel in the tank. so it will tell me i have less fuel than i have. and it refugees to let me fill the tank like normal praises do. but other than that problem i am very happy with my purchase and hope to keep it a couple more years. my next car purchase will be another prius."

Pros: "Quiet ride, storage, back up camera."

Cons: "Poor service dept, no standards from corporate."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"As much as I love the idea of the Prius, I am disappointed in the service departments, and the corporate office (which tells me each dealership is independently owned, meaning they can do what they want without any repercussion except loss of customers). Also, the computer is purposely wrong - the gas mileage is not as good as what the display screen tells you. I only get 34mpg on mine. That is not a typo. They brag about 50 but lots of traditional gas engines do better than my Prius."

Pros: "Milage, low maintenance"

Cons: "Leg/head room, exterior paint job"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I have my Prius almost 10 years now. Drives better than I thought it would. MPG is great. Best milage is at 50-55 mph on freeway. This averages about 50 miles per gallon. Only major repair was for new water pump (about $1,000). Needed a new 12v battery, and have changed tires once since getting the car. Two of those tires needed replacing though. Interior finishings seem low-end...rear door handle and power window control have fallen apart. Dashboard looks low-end. Biggest surprise is exterior paint job gone flat after just a few years, and I kept my car up with regular washing, waxing, etc. Other than oil changes, very little mechanical work has been needed (no tune-up yet, etc.). Was told I need new spark plugs though. Overall very happy with car, especially how little maintenance has been needed, and the great milage. I'm 6'2", so the head/leg room driving it is a bit tight for me."
