long drives are a pain the .... well, you know. the car is not a comfortable as I would like. limited range of adjustments. Not bad for a couple of hours or even on a easy road trip but, more than 10 hours in a day? not for me. too bad. see full Toyota Prius review

The Prius hybrid drive seamlessly blends the gas and electric motors to give me adaquate pick up / acceleration when needed but more than excellent fuel economy on a vehicle that is considered midsize. see full Toyota Prius review

It is very slow, but this is expected I guess. see full Toyota Prius review

The engine is extremely loud when accelerating almost anywhere. It's REALLY slow. About 10.1 sec 0-60 when new. About 12 sec I'm guessing now. The battery is getting weaker and can doesnt run as often in EV mode as it used to. I have to floor the car often to get on the freeway. This lowers MPG a LOT. This is why I don't really get the advertised MPG. see full Toyota Prius review

2006 Toyota Prius Tires: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2005 4dr Hatch 76-horsepower 1.5L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
The low rolling resistance tires give the car it's great fuel economy. These tires have no grip and when you're in an emergency situation, the car understeers. When going around a corner, it understeers. This is a huge reason why the car handles badly. see full Toyota Prius review
