Great car. Very reliable with no major issues until hybrid battery needed to be replaced at 200,000 miles. Great mileage

I picked up the car from my local AutoNation dealership. It came with 115,000 miles on it, the interior and exterior were super clean. The first week I drove it I went 380 miles. The on board computer says I am getting 45mpg, but the car comes with a 11.9 gallon tank, so the mpg's don't add up. I live in Phoenix so the A/C is constantly on, but should the milage be that far off? I don't think so. I will tell all of you that when I went to filler it up the total 13.50. That was an awesome feeling. I'm 5'10 and I could use a little more room. I have the seat all the way back, and it still a bit cramped. It's a great commuter car, and I drive 30 miles round trip, so it is perfect. I paid $6000. for the car, the tires look new and it stops on a dime. I have no real complaints. I hope this helps you with your choice.

I bought this car used in 2008 with 32k on it. It's been a great car with no problems.

My 2006 Toyota Prius has 85,000 miles and is still running strong. I have had no mechanical issues with this car. The Prius is very easy to maneuver in. It gets great gas mileage, it averages 45 mpg in the city. Surprisingly it is pretty spaces, there is enough room for 5 people to fit comfortable. The back seat folds flat to make extra cargo space. I have haled a lot of stuff in the back of my Prius. The technology is pretty good for a 9 year old car, it has a backup camera, hands free calling, navigation, auto climate control, smart key system and HID headlights. The only complaint I have is that the interior materials are low quality and scratch very easily.
