Prius Performance

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

Pros - Easy to drive, very economical to run, passive performance in 'Eco mode' but performs well in 'power mode' if overtaking. Cons - Rear doors 'tinny', Rear window view takes some getting use to, Speedometer reads 10% high. Engine performance very temperature sensitive, does a lot better in summer.

Extremely practical and economical

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

The good Comfortable, good load capacity, ultra reliable and great economy for a fairly big automatic car. I've done 13,500 miles since purchase (Nov 2014) at an average of 59.6mpg. The not so good Build quality - many rattles compared to my previous Honda. Sat Nav is just WRONG on too many occasions and updates are too long in coming. The update process is long winded and tedious.

Drive this car with a feather rather than a heavy foot, charge it over night get 15 miles pure electric motoring next day, do a combination of urban and motorway driving averaging 100 miles per day and get an overall mpg over 10000 miles of 92 mpg.It's true - that's my experience !!! On top of that you have a top of the range Prius with all the gismos (cruise,parking camera,heated front seats,A/C and so on) and nil road tax , excellent reliability - Prius's are the car that Toyota do fewest warranty repairs on- my wife loves the smoothness and quietness of this car -what are you waiting for get one today!!

This is my 2nd Prius

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

Lots of reliable hi tech equip. Very reliable. Hybrid syst works very well with CVT. I get 60 mpg not 74 mpg as claimed and i drive carefully in ECO mode. Never used self park system, too complicated, 70 pages in manual. Service costs high. I have a 3rd Prius on order so that says it all. RS

Totally reliable and very economical hybrid.

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

I bought this Prius nearly 3 years ago when it was 3 years old, to replace my 18 year old people carrier now that my 3 children are almost grown up. I wanted as low as possible 'total cost of ownership' with high reliability which is why I settled on a this car in the end. So far it has been 100% reliable with no faults at all. Pros - economy, reliability, roomier than it looks, good rear passenger legroom, CVT auto transmission - very relaxing to drive, especially in town, keyless entry, not a diesel, holds value well. In summer I get 60+ mpg, in winter around 55. Cons - interior build quality is a bit lacking with rattles and a lot of hard plastic, ride quality on 17 inch wheels quite harsh (I now have 15 inch wheels which is much better), mundane handling, engine noisy when pushed, although this is relative to how quiet it usually is. Sound system was basic, I upgraded mine with an android head unit, which also gave me satnav with live traffic when tethered to my phone. I would certainly upgrade to a newer model when the time comes.

Only two faults

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

My Prius T Spirit is perfect with two exceptions,firstly the turning circle is not as good as my MK 2 T Spirit Prius was secondly although the Prius are quiet cars inside even on motorways at speed limits or near the indicator clicking cannot be heard which many owners have noted therefore signalling to overtake on returning to inside lane drivers can easily leave the right turn signal left on annoying other drivers.

my second prius

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

It has been a quiet, reliable car, pleasant to drive. mainly used with just two occupants.Passengers who have sat in the rear seats have commented on the generous legroom in the rear.It would be an improvement if the front passenger seat was height adjustable. I have never been able to maintain the fuel consumption figures that the sales blurb quotes.The only way they can be attained is with only two occupants,a warm day and never exceeding 40 m.p.h. I do not understand why actual usage figures are not quoted,I get an average of 52 m.p.g.which seems quite reasonable to me.

Prius plug in - an excellent company car

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

My Prius plug- in has just clocked 63000 miles in 3.5 years and remains one of the best company cars I have had the pleasure to drive. Room for five, practical in having a reasonable size boot. Comfortable including most equipment you need as standard. The recharge at 1.5 hours is quite useful although the range of 15 miles on battery is near impossible to achieve , although without the recharge in battery, as a standard hybrid vehicle the fuel economy is pretty impressive. Would I have another as a company car..unlikely as the market place has caught up with Toyota and there are many similar cars available to choose. Would I buy one as s personal car ...no they are too expensive and the fuel economy does not justify the outlay in purchase price. But a great car never the less well done Toyota regards Chris Newman ps the best colour is pearlescent white !

Superb but not inspiring

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

Car is now 6 years old and has never missed a beat. Zero repairs. Practical and spacious. Noisey driving as the tyre noise is high and if power is required the engine screams. MPG averages 60 in summer and 55 in winter.

Toyota superb reliability.

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

First class build quality, and although my car is now almost six years old it has not once given me any problems and does not have any rust any where. The car returns 40+ mpg during the winter months and up to 70 mpg on long journeys. If I have any complaints the only one would be a somewhat hard ride due to the low profile tyres on 17inch alloys. The car is the quietest mechanically I have ever owned and has a great list of equipment including rear camera , touch screen sat nav, HUD display on the front screen, Parking assist, and cruise control just to name a few. The car is road tax free and altogether a very good vehicle to own, I have been a happy buyer and would recommend this model totally.

My ownership history of this vehicle

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

Great to drive, economical to run, cheap on servicing costs, good history of fault free motoring, minimal wear on discs and pads, eco friendly, easy to reverse with beepers and camera and no VED to pay. Cons. not a car to drive in the snow, these type of vehicles you will either hate or love. I like mine so much I have ordered the new model just on the market.

Near perfect

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

I would like to Say that firstly that this Toyota Prius 2012 model T Spirit is my 5th Toyota Automatic,two Corollas,two Auris and a Mk2 Prius T spirit. The one and only fault with my latest car is the turning circle,being in my eighties and waiting to have my cataracts seen to I was really thinking maybe the shuffling I have to do to revers into my driveway and in carparks was down to my age. Boy have I been relieved when reading fellow 3rd generation owners with exactly my problem. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Mk 3 Prius 24500 miles

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

This car is superb in nearly all departments but could do with a suspension upgrade which it got on later models for a more solid feel. It is economical, VED free, cheap to service and the parts of the braking system last a long time due to the electric motor being an integral part of the system, in fact the brake discs show no signs of wear at all. I smile every time I fill up with about £30 worth of fuel no more than once a month and smile again when sitting in a traffic jam in silence listening to all the diesel and petrol cars chucking money up the exhaust and not moving. To be fair it is a Marmite car but I love it for it answers all my requirements and has enough power for my needs but not the type of car for a petrol head. I like it so much I am reluctantly trading it for the new model but have no regrets about owning this car. Happy motoring

2015 Prius T Spirit

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

This is my third Prius, but my first new car,previous 2 were bought at 3 years old. As per all Prius's the fuel consumption is fantastic. The overall impression is very favourable with a few new changes to the inbuilt accessories/functions including automatic headlight power on, driver selectable motorised wing mirror turnin, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and LED running lights. I opted for Adaptive Cruise Control, a factory installed option, and am really impressed with it's operation. Only minor niggle is the lack of a 12v socket on the dash area. While there is one in the console, along with the auxiliary audio input and USB socket, it would be handy to have one for a dashcam etc...

Smart, cheap and reliable

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

I was surprised by the spaces of the Prius. There's plenty of room for legs even in the rear seat but the back seat seems to be better suitable for 2 persons anyway. Trunk is not huge but it's still quite usable because of huge hatch opening all the way up. Rear bumper tends to get scratches while loading the trunk. Insurance is cheap, average fuel consumption is nice and it's even better if you don't just take the car to the highway but tend to drive slowly in the city area. There has been no faults - even though I've heard of faulty wheel bearings in the front. There has been an improved version of the bearing sealing so it should go away when replaced once with original spare parts. People still don't seem to understand that electric cars exist and you may need to use brakes when they jump onto the road in front of you - just because they don't hear you coming. On the other hand, it's really cool to roll through the village silently or use the EV (Electric Vehicle) mode when you head for work really early and don't want to wake up your neighbors. It's a shame the battery only lasts for a mile or two and the car switches automatically to gas engine. Anyway, it's a car you won't need to worry about, just drive it. Enjoy the CVT transmission easiness and just go.

My car handles well, looks great with great speck. The only fault I had was someone at Toyota did not check the car properly and the passenger window did not operate at all. It still annoys me that this was missed.

Nice car but will it hold up

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

It drives nice. Takes a bit of getting used to because of it working different than normal cars. Get the longer or extended warranty. My car had a water cooling pump go out at about 500 miles. I bought the extended warranty to 75k miles. So far it has other than the pump worked fine. We are at 30k miles. I can get about 50 MPG running around.

My Prius plugin

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

We have had this car coming up to 4 years from new, it has been reliable and truly economical with no unpleasant supprises. I recommend it to all people that I meet that are interested, it's genuine overall fuel consumption from the day that I received it to date is 84 mpg (including electric plugins) over the 57500 miles of mixed journeys that I have driven it. We regularly travel by road across France and Spain at the legal limits with a full load and get a fuel consumption of 69-71 mpg (without charging). Overall this car has exceeded my expectations and the service that I have received from Listers at Coventry has been faultless.

It's a good'un

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

This is our 16th car over the last 52 years having started with a 1934 Hillman Minx Coupe and our 2nd Prius. My wife, the driver, doesn't hear very well so the quietness of this car is a bonus. We can easily manage 5 people in the back in comfort and the boot space is enormous. Our Flatcoated Retriever says he is very happy with the space. I measure fuel consumption from day one which has returned 51mpg but there have been individual tankfulls returning 65mpg. Our previous two cars were Rover 75s which gave 38mpg and is much better than our Triumph 2.5PI which only gave 17mpg. This is our second Prius which must say something and the only slight niggle with this one is that the SatNav is not quite as good as the first one.

Camera

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

The camera is of little use with no guide lines. The wing mirrors do not fold automaticly when main switch is activated ? . the Vioce activation does not have any operating instructions therefor does not work?. The information screen is to cluttered to be easily read whilst driving?

Extremely reliable and economical

TOYOTA PRIUS HATCHBACK 2009-onwards

Bought my Prius to replace a people carrier that I'd had for 15 years, as my three children grew up. I was looking for a very reliable replacement, with the lowest total cost of ownership, including running costs, tax, depreciation (major factor), insurance etc. This led me to investigate the Prius, which I had never considered before, not fully understanding how a hybrid worked. I bought a 3 year old T4 at a good price from a main dealer. I've now had it almost 3 years and it has been totally reliable over that time, with no faults whatsoever (touch wood), it has been very economical achieving low 50s MPG in winter and low 60s in summer. Insurance is reasonable and no road tax to pay. It's also very relaxing to drive, I'd doubt I'd ever go back to a manual or non-hybrid car now. I thought I might miss the vast load space of my people carrier but have not so far, the Prius has a larger boot than I imagined, especially when the rear seats are down, I have even fitted in a large full size heavy mahogany chest of drawers with the hatch lid down. It has held it's value extremely well over 3 years and I am now thinking of changing for a later Prius, or maybe a Plug-In version as I have spare solar PV capacity in the summer 6 months. A Plug-In would suit my driving habits which tend to be many short cold start trips around town, which could all be accomplished in EV mode using my spare PV output. The cons (no car is perfect in the price range I can afford!) - 1. The ride was a bit harsh on the original 17" wheels with low profile tyres so I changed to 15" alloys with normal tyres, this improved the ride considerably and the tyres are half the price of 17" ones. The insurers were not worried about this and there was no premium adjustment, just a note on my policy. 2. The handling is OK but not boy racer standard. I find it fine but to a 'petrol head' it would not be classed as good. On the other hand it's not bad either, certainly at least as good or better than my people carrier was, but not as good as my old Mk 2 Escort that I had in the 1980s (which whilst was great to drive was extremely unreliable.) 3. Interior finish is fairly basic compared to some other cars. 4. The supplied old style Radio-CD player was quite dated, so I replaced it with a Chinese made Android head unit, designed for the Prius. This has been wonderful, playing all my music from a USB stick and giving me Google Maps with live traffic updates when tethered to my phone's hotspot. All-in-all I am very happy with it and would certainly buy another Prius, or Auris hybrid if I wanted a smaller car.
