Why the 2011 Toyota Prius?

Fuel economy

Fuel economy is excellent. Also, the car is very rromy with lots of leg room and can carry some pretty big cargo. I once had 7 people in it for 15 minutes, not recomended as it was reaaly slow and too heavy for its braking power. In 25,00 miles NOTHING has gone wrong or needed repair.

Front seat room

Excellent for at least a 6 footer

Rear seat room & comfort


Safety & braking

Calm and secure but not in the least sporty.

Why Not the 2011 Toyota Prius?

Warranty, maintenance cost

rediculous,after 25000 mile free service period $420 every 10 K for oil and filter change and general inspection( Jack Taylor Alexandria Toyota. Have local mechanic do it ir do it yourself


Powertrain performance

It is slow, but steady and relaxing. Do not buy if you want fun.

Color choices

I would have liked a pure red, not the insipid off color barcelona red.

Materials & workmanship

Interior is cheap, lots of hard plastic. but the cloth seats are comfortable and durable


Non existant. I have a hitch I use for a bike rack and I think a small light utility trailer would be OK for hauling light loads
