- Need to have EV like in Europe, need to get driver seat further back, bad armrest fabric
You bet you can get the 60MPG if you can handle getting flipped twice per gallon from mad drivers stuck behind you. Everybody seem to average the 50 MPG on freeway except those who drive hard seem to drop to around 47 MPG. So, the 51 MPG is correct driving speed limit and gentle driving behavior but 60 MPG in the city is possible from midnight till about 4 AM, otherwise you get the birdy. Toyota needs to put a bigger gas tank and recalibrate the displayed ratio because they are not always accurate. To all fairness, after driving many corolla prior to this prius, the only reason why I love the prius is that I save time getting on the carpool lane. In other circumstance, a corolla would get you 43 MPG average if you drive it the way you drive a prius so why pay the extra 7K. Toyota needs to allow prius drivers to control turning off the engine in down-hill situations or running around alleys. Also, need to be able to less re-charge the battery and make use of the charge rather than the repetition re-charge every second. BMW goes for 15K miles without an oil service, how come a hybrid needs a service every 5K. A larger tank, about 14 gallons would do it justice and lets get the seat further back. All in all, American needs to save gas, this car can easily get 60 to 80 MPG if the weight is reduced i.e. offered in coupe as a commuter car. 95% of morning commuters are solo in vehicles any way. I need to get to and from work in the smallest/fastest/quickest/cheapest way possible AND save the environemnt. Good Luck
