2004 TOYOTA PRIUS
I LOVE my 2004 Prius. I get between 46-53 miles per gallon. I drive to & from work & I run errand with my car. It runs smooth and quite for me. I think I am driving the best car on the road.
2007 TOYOTA PRIUS
The Prius was bought for my daughter. She uses it for travel to her community college, work and dance. We wanted a safe, high mpg car that had good reliability and so far the Toyota Prius has met those requirements quite well.

2005 TOYOTA PRIUS
I bought my 2005 Prius used April 2015, so I haven't owned it very long, but to date I am very happy with the vehicle. I went from a SUV to a Prius, so the savings in gas is tremendous. I love the easy of parking and I find myself more conscious of my driving. Not one day have I missed my SUV space. I highly recommend the Prius.
2008 TOYOTA PRIUS
The most reliable, low-maintenance car ever! I bought this car to save fuel commuting and was pleasantly surprised at how much money it saved on maintenance too. I sold it at 120,000 miles and it still had the original brake pads and they still have penty of wear left on them. All I had to do was keep the oil and filters changed.
2008 TOYOTA PRIUS
Bought it for Commute purposes, better fuel average. But the pickup is very low on the lower gears but gets better as we move beyond 30mph.
2002 TOYOTA PRIUS
Needed a basic commuter desperately as my old car was getting 15MPG. Picked this up from a reseller that got it from a dealer. BATTERY HAD BEEN RECENTLY REPLACED by the Toyota dealer. And for these cars, the battery is the major expense you may face. Now enjoying 38MPG. Between this and low gas prices, the car will pay itself off in 24 months.
Used Toyota Prius Information
When most people think of a hybrid car, they think of a Toyota Prius. This is for good reason. The Prius has broken down perceived barriers and has become the most recognized hybrid names in the automotive world.
Now entering its third generation, the Toyota Prius remains one of the top hybrids anywhere. With many other automakers just starting to churn out hybrid models, the Prius is the best-selling Hybrid by far.
It is also highly reliable. Toyota says 95% of all Prius models sold in the last 10 years are still on the road. Not bad for a vehicle that has only been out for 14 years total.
With gasoline prices on a seemingly continuous rise, used Toyota Prius vehicles are becoming more sought after. Even with battery replacement concerns, the fuel savings trumps those concerns. In fact, when considering a used Prius, the longevity of the battery is about the only real consideration.
These days, the Prius comes in a several different sizes: subcompact, wagon, plug-in variant, standard. The standard Prius is still the compact hatchback variety, yet with improved exterior styling. The subcompact is smaller, while the wagon has an extended truck which is quite useful. The plug-in is fully electric.
It also comes in several different trim levels (2, 3, 4, 5 and Persona Series). As you move up in trim levels, you will get more features like premium audio options.
Powering the Prius is a 1.8-L gas engine used in conjunction with two electric motors and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This system maximizes fuel economy with an EPA estimated 51 city/48 hwy possible. It is worth noting many "hyper-milers" have gotten far better fuel economy than the EPA estimates.
Ultimately, the Prius remains the Hybrid leader thanks to its innovative synergy drive system resulting in outstanding fuel economy and low emissions.
