2004 Toyota Prius User Reviews
4-Door Liftback shown
- No trim specified for this review
- Excellent fuel economy; quiet; well mannered; fun to drive; low emissions.
- Panel lighting too dim; blind spot right front. Driver seat needs better thigh support.
I've owned my Prius for almost a year. Toyota's legendary quality and design research show in the new Prius; and I have had no problems with the car. The car is superbly put together, quiet and well mannered. Fuel economy, even though less than EPA, is extraordinary for a car this size.
I love the wedgy-body shape and the unique statement it makes about environmental awareness. Everything in this car was designed to lessen impact on the environment; the plastics are made from vegetable matter and, like the rest of the car, designed to be recycled.
On a 2000 mile road trip from Seattle to San Francisco, in April of 2004, I averaged 52 mpg on the freeway at 62-65 mph. Mileage drops slightly in colder weather, but is still well above any other car its size.
My Prius has the optional vehicle stabilty control system which, I think, improves the general handling of the car as well as providing safety in skidding conditions.
Lots of legroom. I am 6' 2" and can sit in the back seat with my legs crossed with the front seats as far back as they go. I would like
better thigh support for the driver.
