This is the 3rd time I've tried to give this car a low rating so the reason I'm giving it 5 stars is because when I want to give it 2 or 1 stars, it rejects my review. We'll see if review goes through. I purchased this car in Nov 2011 and had it for ONE MONTH. Could not tolerate the road noise or the uncomfortable seats. Unfortunately, a 15 or 20 min test drive is not a full indication of what any car is really about. I liked the fact that it gets good gas mileage and has more space in the back than a standard Prius. Unfortunately, it has the most uncomfortable driver's seat I've ever sat in for a long period of time. I drove from LA to San Diego and had to stop 4 times to get out and stretch. It even caused pain in my right leg. JUST AWFUL!! And the lumbar support is a joke. It feels like a metal rod across my lower back. Another complaint was the road noise. AWFUL! It's like they skimped on the insulation. I had a 2009 Prius and it had much less road noise than this car. In fact, this Prius V felt like it was made from plastic. The moon roof is not glass but acrylic. The manual suggested it was easily scratched and to use extreme caution when cleaning. So I paid $37,000 for it and when I went to trade it in, no one would give me more than $28,000 cause word has gotten out about quality issues. The worst car buying mistake ever. Beware!!!
