Love everything about this car
February 19, 2019
This is our second Prius and we absolutely love it. Gas mileage is excellent, though actually better on the city than on the highway because city driving gives the hybrid more opportunities to switch to battery power. It's very quiet, and spacious enough to hold 4 people and their luggage for a long road trip, which we have done countless times without incident. My husband and teenagers are rather tall, and they are all comfortable enough in the car, though I think they might like a little more leg room in the back seat if the person in front has the seat all the way back. The keyless entry and keyless start are very convenient, as long as you have the key fob with you, just grab the handle and the car door will unlock. If the key fob is inside the car, the car will start with the push of a button - you don't even need to get them out of your bag or your pocket. The car won't stay locked if you leave the key fob inside or leave the engine running, so it's nearly impossible to lock your keys in your car.
We bought our last Prius used with about 60,000 miles on it and by 150,000 miles the only repairs we had were replacing the standard battery (not the more expensive hybrid battery), the blower motor for the cabin air, new tires, and occasionally replacing some light bulbs.
The only reason we replaced it was because it was totaled in an accident. The only downside to this car in my opinion is the low clearance sometimes makes it a challenge to drive in very deep snow. However, even with the low clearance I've only gotten stuck in the snow once.
