Pros: I like sitting higher off ground. Getting about 40mpg.when I'm in slow traffic on freeway. Electric mode is great, last for about 1 1/2 miles. Love idea of not polluting.
Cons: I dislike the handbreak release due to the fact it hurts my arm. Also I dislike the way you have to turn on/off headlights.
Overall review: I like the idea of electric mode while sitting in traffic or red light. If you use a light foot you can get up to 35 miles per hour before gas goes on. I'm always trying to get 40 miles or better per gallon. I drive 20 miles one way to work. In one tank of gas I got 41 1/2 mpg. You will be surprised how with a light foot and traffic below 35mph how long you can stay in electric mode.
