Hopefully a Great Car like our 2004 Prius

As a proud owner of a 2004, 2 Gen Prius with 170K miles, we just brought our second Prius, . . . this time a 2016 Prius V. We love the smooth ride and comfort of the Prius V, as well as the spacious interior, cargo space, and the fuel economy. The single drawback is its exterior look. I think it is the ugliest car on the road. It reminds me of a wide-mouth bass, . . . referring to the front grille. Oh well, you can't have everything!


Worth the money

coming up on 95000 miles. 45-55 MPG. Its a 4 and optioned out. Quite competent. Easy to drive. Didn't buy it for looks, but it has grown on me, lol Most important, wife loves it.


Wish it could tow

160k. And she still runs. Have not had any mechanical issues or major repairs. Can’t figure out why I have not done anything to the brakes. Have stayed current with maintenance all with Toyota Dealers in the country, including oil changes.
