We bought a 2005 generation 2 Toyota Prius used in 2009. It had only 50k miles on it and had been well taken care of by an elderly couple who used it as a winter car in Arizona when they would come down as snow birds. We needed something more fuel efficient than our large SUV's we had. It has been a great car, with little to no issues and only minor maintenance. We have driven it across country and frequently take it on long road trips due to gas mileage performance. The vehicle is great for big city driving due to it's great performance in tight spaces....It has been a life saver in parking garages in the Seattle Metro area. The car also handles very well in the snow when we travel up to the mountains, with it's low center of gravity and heavy battery basin, the traction is great. The... (more)
Story
One of the best times we had was when we drove it out to Seaside, Washington, where you can drive right into the water if you wanted. We didn't of course, but were able to back it up and pop the hatchback and have a picnic on the beach with the kids. All the awesomeness of the beach, but also convenience of having your car and belongs with you. The hatchback also was a nice shade cover.
Pros
The Prius has many great things to say about it, it's world renown for it's gas mileage of course. When we first bought it we got 55 miles per gallon and not that has dipped to about 46 miles per gallon but we live in a more hilly location now which uses the engine more than prior when we lived on a flat desert. The car is super quiet to, which is nice when leaving early or late to not wake up kids or neighbors, dogs etc. The interior is super spacious for the compact size of the vehicle, and when the seats are folded down you can sleep in the back as it sports 6 feet of length space. It h... (more)
Cons
There are some negatives about the Prius, especially being the second generation that we have. Many of the issues that were brought to attention with our model have now be remedied on future models, which makes us even more likely to purchase another Prius in the future, albeit a newer model. The biggest issues were with the heating in the winter. It takes a long time for our car heater to heat up since it doesn't typically use the engine when you start it up, so no being able to idle the car in the drive to warm up. Also the engine has to run for the heater to work on our model so you use... (more)

While I always found the idea of hybrid cars interesting, I was never truly passionate about them until purchasing this Prius. Not only is the car sleek and serves its purpose comfortably, but the gas mileage it can achieve is phenomenal. On a cross-country move with my husband and two cats, we made literally half the amount of stops for gas that we had to make previously with a different car, and the stops we DID make took less money to fill-up. That's not to mention how nice it was to have a comfortable front seat to sit in with plenty of room for boxes, bags, and two large cat pens all to fit wonderfully. As a "fun-sized" person, the fact that the driver's seat can adjust to suit my height needs makes me love this car more than any I have previously owned.
Story
The cross-country move my husband, myself, and our two cats had to make was entirely miserable in every aspect EXCEPT the car and the actual driving. It was nicer for us to stay in the car for our meal breaks even, and the quiet, non-jostling interior of the car helped keep the cats calm.
Pros
I really do love the interior design and adaptability. I'm a big proponent of items we use in our day to day lives should be able to adapt to fit our needs. Not only can the front seats adjust to fit how short I am, but the middle seats can fold down to extend the storage capabilities of the back (and by fold down they ACTUALLY fold down flat, not the 45 degree angle stuff some cars claim). The climate control adjust quickly and easily, which is vital as we move between one of the warmest states and one of the coldest.
Cons
Really the only cons I have are really 'nitpicks' - small details that don't REALLY matter as a whole. For example the radio on/off button sticks sometimes. There is also the small noise the engine makes while you're stopped at a light or street sign as the gears switch over to power conservation, but it's such a quiet nose and you quickly get so used to it you hardly notice it.

Great vehicle known for it's excellent gas mileage. I love the 40+ MPG. It drives smoothly, and is very durable, not requiring maintenance that often. I also enjoy the fact that it is a hybrid car, which means it is better for the environment than a gas guzzling car.
Story
Going on a road trip with it.
Pros
The gas mileage, durability, comfortable seats, easy to drive, eco-friendly. My favorite feature is the gas mileage, because it saves a ton of money on gas.
Cons
The look, not a lot of trunk space, key costs a lot of money if lost, key costs money once battery dies in key.

Generations

The name Prius is derived from Latin, and it means first, original, and superior. Conceived as a car for the 21st century, Prius was introduced in October 1997 as the world's first mass-market hybrid passenger vehicle. The term 'hybrid' comes from the fact that it's powered by a gas engine, electric motor or by a combination of the two. The Prius has been rated as one of the cleanest vehicles available for purchase in the U.S., based on its smog-forming emissions.

2015-present (4th Generation)

The fourth generation of Prius delivered even better fuel efficiency than all of its predecessors.

The 2018 Prius Eco had a combined city and highway fuel economy of 56 mpg. Because of this, it was ranked as the second most fuel efficient gasoline-powered car without plug-in capability sold in the United States. The technology represents significant improvements in the batteries, electric motors and gasoline engines.

New in this model are standard LED headlamps and a double-wishbone independent suspension in the rear. Since 2016, the Prius has been a fastback, meaning that the car’s lines slope down in the rear to its bumper.

This was also the generation where Toyota split the plug-in hybrid version of the Prius into a separate model line called the Prius Prime. It delivered the highest to-date MPG equivalent (MPG-e) while in “all-electric” EV mode. The Prime, which has a four-seat layout (there's no middle seat in the back), can run entirely on electric power for up to 25 miles (its total range is 640 miles). This plug-in hybrid’s overall EPA rating was 54 mpg with a 133 mpg MPG-e rating.

2009-2015 (3rd Generation)

This generation of Prius got a new front-drive Toyota Hybrid Systems (THS) engine that grew in size to 1.8 liters from 1.5 liters. It produced 98 hp but could generate up to 134 hp with the maximum battery power in play. The EPA rated the car at 50 mpg combined.

This was the first generation of Prius to offer an optional plug-in hybrid version; it debuted in 2012 and it offered an 11-mile all-electric range and a total range of 540 miles.

This third-generation Prius had a slightly larger body than its predecessors. Although it kept the wedge-shaped profile from the second-generation Prius, the new model was more aerodynamic, with a special double-wave design to the roof. It also had an updated hood and headlights, with the hood and rear hatch as well as the front axle and brake calipers crafted from aluminum to reduce the vehicle's weight and all four wheels got disc brakes.

This Prius utilized a first-of-its-kind all-electric A/C compressor for cooling. This is the first engine intended for consumer use that needs no accessory belts, due in large part to the use of an electric water pump. Toyota also utilized new plant-derived bioplastics to make this car.

In 2011, Toyota introduced two variants of the Prius body style. The larger Prius V was an extended hatchback (essentially a wagon) with over 50 percent more cargo space than the normal Prius.The smaller Prius C was a subcompact hatchback aimed at more value-oriented buyers.

For the 2012 model year the headlamps and tail lamps were updated, and so were the front fascia and bumper. Inside the cabin, the new model sported a touch-screen AM/FM CD stereo, USB port and auxiliary input jack, as well as Bluetooth capability. There was also an optional rooftop solar panel for providing power to a ventilation fan whenever the car is parked.

In the U.S., Prius trim levels consisted of the Prius Two, Three, Four and Five. The advanced technology offered on the Prius Five included an HDD navigation system and dynamic radar cruise control. Safety features such as the pre-collision system and lane keep assist made their debut. This model also saw the introduction of Toyota's Vehicle Proximity Notification System (VPNS), which made a noise to let pedestrians – especially blind people – know the otherwise silent Prius was there.

2003-2009 (2nd Generation)

In 2003, the Prius was completely redesigned for the 2004 model year. The new Toyota Hybrid System II replaced the original Toyota Hybrid System, making it a more fuel-efficient car which was more environmentally friendly than before. Though the engine was the same size as the first-gen (a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder unit), it was rated by the EPA at 46 mpg combined.

This was also when the design shifted from a sedan to a five-door liftback, six inches longer than the previous version, which increased luggage space and legroom in the rear seat.

This generation Prius also saw the introduction of what has come to be known as the "triangle silhouette,” so named because the car’s highest point was now directly above the driver's head. From this point, the lines of the vehicle sloped gently downwards in both directions, which improved aerodynamics while becoming part of the signature Prius look.

1997-2003 (1st Generation)

The original Prius had a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder automatic engine and offered Standard, Base and Touring packages. The EPA rated it at 41 mpg combined.

Standard equipment included AC and electric power steering. This first Prius was a sedan – the only time Toyota has offered a sedan model in the Prius line. While it could seat five passengers, cargo space was limited by the car’s battery pack. There are two kinds of battery packs, a High Voltage (HV) battery, aka the "traction" battery, and a 12-volt Low Voltage (LV) battery, which starts the car and provides power to the car's computer.

When the vehicle is turned off, Prius uses a vacuum flask to store hot coolant in for later reuse, thus reducing the car's warm-up time.
