Pros: "MPGs, comfortable and fun to drive"

Cons: "left rear blindspot"

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

"I love my car!!! It always starts in any weather, and goes exactly where I want it to. There is a blind spot on the left rear so you have to be careful changing lanes. Very comfortable to drive long distances and of course road trips are that much better when you don't have to stop so often for gas. The trunk holds a ton of stuff, and still gets 44.3 MPG. 4 adults sit comfortably in this car."

"This is my 11th Toyota purchased. I have basically bought every model Toyota made. I love my Prius and will replace it with another one. I am only considering selling it due to high mileage. It has been maintenance free. I change the oil every 3,000 miles and filters, when needed, as well as tires."
