"Best vehicles in forty years of driving!."5.0 starson by dksmidtx
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.
Thanks for your submission!
