The Truth by ZenWaveRider on 03/09/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota Prius Two, Owned 1 year.
19
Pros: I get very good to excellent gas mileage in my 2012 Prius II. On flat driving surfaces the car exceeds the mpg that is listed. I was surprised to get 50+ mpg on congested San Diego and LA freeways. Short trips in a cold Prius and hills reduce mpgs. That describes my usual driving. Overall, the Prius has saved me a lot of time and money at the pump compared to my previous VW VR6. My VW was a BLAST to drive but killed my new family at the pump and with excessive unscheduled maintenance costs. That said, I was looking for savings at the pump and RELIABILITY. The basic Toyota Prius II has done all that after one year of ownership.
Cons: Unlike the solid "thump" of a VW, the door panels on the Prius vibrate and sound hollow. While the interior is roomy with comfortable seats, the cloth upholstery soils easily. The interior plastics all look cheap. POOR VISIBILITY is a MAJOR CONCERN! Invest in a backup camera/sensor. I did have ONE SERIOUS ISSUE with the car. On three ocassions my new Prius would not start when pushing on the POWER button. The car alarm kill switch prevented me from starting my own car. I discovered that if I reset and then deactivated the alarm with my key fob, the car would start. Toyata took care of the problem after the second time when I informed them of my findings on the internet.
Overall review: Overall, I am very pleased with my Toyota Prius II. Despite some harsh criticism, the Prius has been an excellent, reliable family car that has saved me time and money. The Blue Tooth is great and the basic audio system just fine for me. Under better circumstances, I would have gotten the Plug-In or the Prius III or IV with the bells and whistles that I prefer. As it is, I am happy with my Prius II. Besides, I got a GREAT DEAL!!! A performannce car it is NOT! The Prius is an excellent family car that gets you from point A to point B. You'll save on gas and maintenance and help our environment. Beware of the visibility and start up/alarm kill-switch issues!!!
