"Bought the car new; it's been great. Got the touring version with leather. Not a thrill to drive, but roomy inside and very reliable. Hatchback style is versatile. Mileage has been great: 44-53 depending on weather and town vs. highway. What could be better? Seats are only moderately comfortable, and their height isn't adjustable. Keyless locking and starting are pluses. In 7 years I've gotten a new set of tires and replaced the (regular) battery. That's it! My next car may well be a Camry or Accord hybrid - for the extra room and power. What I really want is a hybrid, CRV, RAV4, or Ford small SUV, if they existed, which they don't."

"Bought new with a few reservations. Probably the best car ever. Was NEVER in the shop for anything but oil changes and new tires in over 106k miles. Goes like a trooper. Not particularly smooth ride for real long distances, but it's ok. Many long trips. Just got out more often.Gas milage is absolutely GREAT. Still getting at, and over, 50 MPG in and out of town."

"Great car overall requires very little maintenance and the gas mileage is awesome we average between 39.1 to 50 MPG. Car requires oil changes just like any other car. You don't have to plug it in the battery charges when you go down hill or just sitting at a light. The technology and research that went into this car to get it right is just astounding!!!"

"If you buy a Prius, plan on selling it before the battery warranty expires because there's a good chance the battery will fail shortly there after. I bought the (six year old) car for $11,500 with 89,000 miles and 2 years later at 125,000 the battery died. Just sold it for $5500. Cost to operate the car was actually more than any other vehicle when you consider the depreciation. Toyota still denies that battery failure is very common, when in fact it is VERY common between 100-120,000 miles. I regret not buying a Corolla, the gas mileage is just a bit lower."
