This is the best car I have ever own, bar none. Second place is light years away. The car is indestructible it avarages over 45 miles a gallon city and highway combines. Its never broken down once I have not even had a flat. The regular battery is stiil good. It does not leak or use oi. The brakes are still original. I have to really be picky to find even a very minor thing. The original tires were bad. I used this car for UBER so it was not babied rther it wasa abused Not even a tail light has burned out I tell you the car is indestructible. Any one who does not consider n buying a Prius has to be either a prejudiced persona 500 Lb giant, or very naive and into style and sports car like handling. Anybody else HAS to look at a car that is very roomy never brakes down, its made like no other car I have ever even dreamed of owning. Seriously over 81000 miles and it still has the original lightsand I dont mean the headlights although those too are working fine I mean all lights every single one every lite bulb everything is working and it has never ever broken. Its just amazing I have to pinch my self at times. As a car for a normal four people family where there are no more than one truly oversized individual IT HAS NO RIVAL and 45 + MPG while driving hard ( I have averaged as much as 58 miles mpg baying it ) Talking about oversize I had a steady client for a while that weight arounf 400 lbs and was 6'2' and he fit comfortably in the front passenger seat . What can I tell you . The only thing that holds me back from buying onlky Prius for the rest of my driving days is the Price. I am retired and 26000 plus its a reach. Especially when I can get myself into another really nice toyota product for less and I am only 5 '9' and the old lady is a shrimp.
