After taking on a new job that required a 90 mile round trip commute, I started hunting for used cars with better reliability and gas mileage than my late-90's Subaru Impreza was giving me. Since I'm a huge analytical nerd, I even built a spreadsheet. As much as I wanted something more "fun," the 2005 Prius kept coming out at the top of the list for cheap commuter cars. Even at 115k miles, I was getting 48mpg and didn't have any reliability or drive-ability problems. At the current 175k miles I've put nothing but standard maintenance into the car and the original hybrid battery system is still going strong. Although it's no sports car, this Prius is fast enough to get the job done without other people running me over. The ride is comfortable and I'm not sure I could ask for more witho... (more)
Story
I'm an avid target shooter and there are some great outdoor gun ranges in my area. The utility storage in the trunk is a perfect fit for my rifles, and it's pretty fun to break stereotypes and show up to the range in a Prius!
Pros
The price is pro number one. In the used market, I'm not sure there's a commuter car more affordable than the 2nd generation Prius. Between the low purchase price, high reliability, and fantastic gas mileage, I'm not sure a better deal could be found. The car is amazingly roomy as well. Don't let the outside fool you, I've moved many large purchases home with this thing. Furniture from Ikea, lawn mowers and giant rugs from Home Depot, you name it! I also gig around with my band and all my guitar equipment fits under the hatch with room to spare.
Cons
Road noise on the highway is a bit more than larger, more expensive cars. Other than that, the only complaint I have is how other drivers treat me on my usual commute. There seems to be a lot of inexplicable "Prius hate" in the world.

My family bought a Prius new to replace a gas-guzzling Ford Mustang. It became our preferred car for grocery shopping and hauling the dogs around, and has been great for road trips. The interior is comfortable and has a nice amount of headroom even for tall people, and the seats adjust well for everyone. Visibility is very good for all points around the driver. The ride is very smooth and quiet.
Story
One of our first road trips in this car was to Elephant Rocks State Park and a nearby campground. After years of having coupes and sports cars, it was wonderful to be able to fit everything in the car and still be able to see out the back window.
Pros
It's great to not have to stop for gas as often on road trips. I primarily drive around town now, at speeds lower than 50mph, and the mileage is so good that I usually only have to fill up once a month. It's a nice sized car as well. We've used it to haul lawn mowers, televisions, groceries, furniture, and camping gear. The seats are easy to fold down and lay very flat. It's got pickup that seems to surprise people too, accelerating quickly and smoothly from a stop.
Cons
Be aware that the hybrid battery may die, and if it does, you'll be paying at least $1500 to get it replaced. The cost of the vehicle new is also high, and you may or may not recover these costs in gas savings, depending on your driving style. Also, you need to be aware that the car is very quiet not just on the inside, but the outside as well. Pedestrians will not hear you; you need to be sure they see you, especially in parking lots, if you are going to drive by them.
