"having owned two second generation Prius, I have nothing but praise for them. These are marvels of technological genius, that function flawlessly...most dependable car on the road. Just take a look in metro areas anywhere in the world to see the prime choice of taxi drivers...its Prius, hands down. The mechanical marvel is just the beginning. The interior is the most efficient, functional, and spacious work of automotive art in existence"

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

"I purchased this car new in 2005. It has been a very good car, no mechanical problems, very reliable, and outstanding fuel economy. I've had to buy tires, a new starter battery, change the oil, and replace one LED tail light in 10 years of ownership. The navigation system is nice, but I have not updated the maps in 8 years due to the high cost of the updates."

"My Prius, at 90k miles has never needed more than oil, tires, headlight and (small) battery. It's comfortable, and remarkably roomy - amazing what I can get in the back of it! And the mileage - 46mpg at 80mph w the AC blasting. I love this car."

"Yes, 242,000 original miles. Still driving on original brake pads. Tires changed after 95,000 miles per set. The only repair was a water pump on the gas engine side due to noise in the pump bearing. Oil changes every 5,000 miles, air and cabin filters every 25,000 miles. Fluids replaced per owners manual. Plugs replaced at 165,000 miles. At last check, batteries show greater than 50% life remaining. Complete gas records verify 50 mpg since day one. I've never owned a car before that has treated me so well."
