"I have owned GM cars for about 5 years now, but grew up with Toyotas. My 1st 3 cars were Toyotas and I was always happy with them.I used a 2008 Prius as a rental for a week. I have NEVER driven a hybrid but, LOVED driving this one! Drove 1600+ miles, cost me $80 or so in gas and was very user friendly. There was room for my husband(6'3 & 300lbs), not much but he said it was ok. Had a very stable feel while driving, not like the KIA I rented last time! The pickup wasnt phenomenal but it was good, the seats were comfortable.I am seriously considering a Prius for our next small car purchase.I have told everyone how happy I was with it and that they should check one out for themselves. A+ to Toyota! Please change the reflection on the windshield from the spedo. Its distracting at night. But other than that I was VERY HAPPY!"
"Got my Prius in March 2008, I drive it about 45 miles per day. The gas milaege is great, I average 43mpg. Feel great about the low emissions. I have plenty of power to pass and get up to speed quickly. I tend to drive a little fast at about 70+ mph, which is why I get low 40s in mpg. I'm 6' tall and feel very comfortable, though I probably wouldn't recommend to someone taller. Back seats are roomy with plenty of leg room for adult passengers. It would be hard for me to consider another car, unless I upgrade to a newer Prius someday."
