Not very good
My Prius is 2007 model and today 383 thousand kilometres. My humble opinion:
- The vehicle is very light and trucks overtaking me the car moves away and in significantly . Can be scary.
-Too much tyres background noise and driving on the freeway can cause tinnitus.
- Air conditioning is good.
-The engine consumes a lot of oil since from the beginning.
- Gear box very good
- Front lights a total disaster! They blew easily and from the drivers side is extremely difficult to replace the bulb without scratching your fingers or braking nai...
Purchased in May 2007 for $45.00.
ABSOLUTELY Love It!!
This car has got me a best of 1280km to 1 tank, with only 32.5 litres to fill I can 'easily do 2.5- 3weeks(1 tank) every day to work and driving around. These are highly Reliable cars as you can expect from Toyota, managed as low as 2.1 LPH! My Mechanic has one exactly the same and he has done now 338,000km! Without anything going wrong. Simply amazing and cannot More highly Recommend 11/10 for Value and Fuel costs. Best car I've owned.
Purchased in August 2013.
2015 Prius C with 278,000 km
This car is amazing! Firstly, it isn’t an i-tech model.
Mainly on account of the wheels and tyres. The i-tech has larger wheels (ie rims) and lower profile tyres. Great if you want to go racing, but on a small, lightweight car the ride becomes rock hard. On top of that, they are noisier, more prone to damage, (as are the rims), wear out faster, more costly to replace and sometimes hard to find. Also, the i-tech badge adds an extra 2 metres to the turning circle and uses 5% more fuel. No of this is outweighed by a ...fancy gear knob and leather seats. But this car has been 278,000 kms!!! Yes it has (and probably a bit more by time you read this). The first 22,000 came in the first year and the rest Ubering in Sydney.
Purchased in July 2015 at Clintons Toyota for $26,000.00.
Relaxing and economical
If you want a relaxing, easy to park, ecomomical and no fuss car this is it. The outstanding feature is how quiet it is in stop start traffic which is where this car is most at home. Mechanically excellent and reliable. Real word ecoonomy can reach 3.9lites per 100km and averages around 4.9litrs per 100km. The digital display is fun. Highly recommended for city dwellers.

A charismatic little car
My wife loves her little 2014 Prius C. We both like the light steering & easy parking. It's not as nippy as some cars but holds it's own once moving. The CVT combines with cruise control to maintain 110kph on the freeway, even on the steepest hills. It tells you it's working hard on the steep freeway hills (Mooney Mooney Bridge between Sydney & Central Coast) though, but settles back to low revs back on the flat. Personally I find the driver's seat lacks comfort (needs more lumbar support), but my wife thinks it's fine. Mostly there's only ...one person in the car. In 42 months it's covered 19,726 k's (& has been serviced 7 times). It took a while to get used to the engine cutting out every time you stop, but it's a great idea to save fuel wastage. This is our eighth Toyota (including my work cars). I've read (& watched) many Prius C reviews. Motoring journalists generally don't like it, but interestingly owner reviews & comments are overwhelmingly positive. 6 July 2018 - this is my last update, as we've now sold the Prius. Retirement beckons, so we won't need a second car any longer.
