I like this car. With increasing fuel prices, it doesnt pay its way back for a fair while (10yrs on 2006 prices). I havent had any issues in the 3 years I've owned it.
Fast. Ridiculously easy to drive. Fuel efficient (750k to 50L tank). Good resale price (according to car sale websites). Comfortable to be a passenger. Enough passenger room for 5 incl driver, and luggage room even with the battery. Cheap servicing ($125 for a full service at a Toyota service).
A little weird looking. Not very gutsy on uphills (though not many 1.5L are). A little cramped in the drivers seat, but I'm 190cm tall. Its a new product, so maybe all the bugs havent been worked out yet.

When you need the extra push, you can turn on the power button. It does burn extra fuel but doesn't make extra noise. Futuristic displays caught my attention at beginning. In traffic jam, you almost hear nothing as it would then runs on battery mode. I always show off to my friends amount of fuel am able to save upon cruising on highways. Love it.
Less dent on my pocket, fuel efficient, no compromise in energy
Not nice looking at all. Looks more girlish.

My 2002 Prius is beautiful, easy and fun to drive and cheap to run. It was bought second hand and had done over 160 000 km, but it runs like new. It's a hybrid and as such doesn't use a huge amount of petrol, which makes it cheap to run. The transmission stick and the handbrake are in strange places, but it'll take you less than a minute to get used to it. The speedometer is large and digital, which makes it much easier to monitor speed than in a typical car. The only downside is the brakes can be quite sensitive, and it's a bit tricky to come to a smooth stop.
Absolutely beautiful, easy to drive, very smooth, a hybrid, incredibly quiet, excellent petrol:km ratio, loads of legroom.
Brakes stick slightly.
