2006 Toyota Prius User Reviews
4-Door Liftback shown
- No trim specified for this review
- Good handling, safe, great milage
- none for me
I am disabled and short, and very few cars allow for my brace and equipment and still allow me close enough to the steering wheel to see where I'm going. Prius fits me to a T. Sicne I have trouble turning to the right to look over my shoulder, the back-up camera is a wonderful thing to have.
As far as milage goes, mine has been excellent. One warning is that, like all cars, the milage is worse in cold weather than in warm weather, but unlike other cars, you're very aware of it, because your Prius tells you every second how much you are getting to the gallon. In the summer, I averaged 62mpg. So far in the winter, I'm averaging 54, except the last couple of days, when it's been below zero and I've been getting about 45.
People who like to drive fast will probably not get that kind of milage -- Prius does really well at around 40mph (most of the roads where I live are 20-45mph, so I do well. On the highway, I've found the optimal mpg setting for cruise control to be 62.
I've never had a car I liked better, and I really, really liked my last one.
