Pros Reliable, very good on gas, lots of options, great ride, and much more room for passengers than the competition.
Cons The base hub caps are horrid. Haven't found a set of sunglasses that fit in the sunglasses holder. No good place to put my change. The dash shows dirt very easily. The heated seat switches couldn't be in a worse spot.
Summary I have owned my 2012 Prius for a little over a month and just love it? Great gas mileage and lots of options that come standard. Some minor complaints listed above but overall really a great car.
Pros Mpg's are real +/- 1 to 2 miles per gallon, but on average 60 miles city driving normal and obeying the speed limits, more mpg's in traffic. Not obeying all the speed limits 50 to 55 mpg's, Highway's 45 to 50+ mpg's
Cons Rev noise going up hill is pronounced, slight wind noise from where the seat belt is attached, 0 to 60 time, but I am not a driving in a race so don't really care.
Summary This car is a keeper for a long time, I have already given my black Prius C a name Baby Gia. :)
Pros Mileage; reliability, great room for the size.
Cons Wish it had optional key start (just don't trust fobs);
Summary I seriously doubt randallhsmith even owns a Prius. We have a 2009 Prius and 2012 Prius v. They are simply the best vehicles we have owned in forty years of driving. The reviewer's final conclusion is perfect - they simply work (just like an iPhone). Over the years we've owned Civic, Accord, Nissan, Toyota minivan, Suburban, Ford sedan(s), Hyundai Santa Fe and Veracruz, and more...the Prius outshines them all. On our last trip to Colorado, from Raton, NM (over the pass) to Colorado Springs our 2009 got 51mpg (actual gallons, not the gauge, which tends to be +2mpg). Best of all, just drive, you don't have to baby it (but I have to admit that pushing mileage at times is fun as well). Despite the lower gas mileage, the Prius v's longer/wider stance and driver height are fantastic. Front legroom is better than anything we've driven, save a Suburban. The low forties is a great tradeoff for the low fifties for the additional ride comfort, space, and visibility.
Pros As an automobile, the 2012 Prius Model 5 is absolutely stunning. It is no slouch getting away from the traffic. Ride and handling are great. The interior design is Starship terrific. The leather seating and legroom are surprisingly generous.
Cons The "Display audio w/Navi, Entune & JBL" doesn't work: 1) unless it has access to a smartphone connection, or 2) if the car is in motion. You can try using the voice inputs, but that takes more concentration than a simple poke on the touch screen.
Summary The "Toyota Entune" system supposedly gives you lots of NET connectivity ("Entune™ is a collection of popular mobile applications and data services integrated with select Toyota vehicles. To use Entune™, all you need is a compatible smartphone or feature phone, a data plan from your mobile carrier, and a Toyota vehicle equipped with an Entune™ -enabled multimedia system.") Read that statement carefully, as Entune needs your smartphone and airtime to be of any use at all. Also, the Navigation system touch screen is disabled when the car is in motion! Try pulling to a stop on the shoulder of a busy freeway so you can define your intended destination! Not SMART, Toyota.
There are aftermarket solutions available for $70 to $300, but all require that you pull your dash apart and remove the electronics unit. Toyota needs to provide an electronic solution at no cost to the new car owner.
Pros 60 + MPG, easy to use controls, and handles well.
Cons is a bit noisy.
