A lot of the Prius's appeal is its 44-mpg overall fuel economy and ultraclean emissions. But it also provides a roomy interior, hatchback versatility and admirable road manners. Although relatively small on the outside, the long wheelbase and efficient space utilization give it interior room comparable to that of a midsized car.

What Owners Say

"Acceleration is definitely less than my non-hybrid car."

Anonymous, GA (2007 Toyota Prius)

"It is sluggish on the pickup. Also, steering is a little sloppy."

"No great shakes when it comes to handling, but adequate."

David C., ME (2007 Toyota Prius)

"Very noisy"

Robert L., AZ (2007 Toyota Prius)

"Acceleration and handling are not breathtaking but are perfectly adequate. I guess that I said i was mostly satisfied because I remember driving a Chevette 35 years ago. Economy cars have come a long way."

Thomas S., NM (2007 Toyota Prius)

"It sucks in the snow, it loses traction very easily. I don't know if it's been addressed in new models or not; it should be addressed. I borrow one of the 3 Subarus in the family durning snowstorms."

Anonymous, NY (2007 Toyota Prius)

JOAN C., MA (2007 Toyota Prius)

"My driving attitude has changed with our Prius. Mostly due to the real-time readout for MPG for overall mileage and for MPG at that precise instant, my mileage has increased because I pay attention to that information."

KENT W., CA (2007 Toyota Prius)

"Love the mileage and is easy to drive."

ALBERT S., OR (2007 Toyota Prius)

"When I first purchased it, I drove to Stratford, Canada, where there were none, so my car got a lot of attention. Canada seems to have no cars that look like "accidents waiting to happen" on their roads, and one can drive quite fast there. I was delighted to find that the nimble handling and great acceleration of my Prius more than held its own. I also learned that the ride is not quiet inside."

"mpg much better when driven by non-aggressive driver"

Anonymous, OH (2007 Toyota Prius)

"In my opinion, the traction control on the Prius is actually a hazard, the way it's designed. Example: trying to accelerate from a stop on a wet road. If the system detects a tiny slip in the wheels, it kills the power off almost entirely. I've had this happen when I was trying to accelerate from a stop sign to get into traffic. Having the thing essentially die for a moment is dangerous. I contacted Toyota, and they said that it was doing what it was supposed to do, in order to protect the pow"

THOM R., DE (2007 Toyota Prius)

"Quicker to respond under all conditions than the 2014; drives like a smaller car even though it's actually not when placed side-by-side. Similar steady-state grip, but more nimble-feeling. Throttle quicker to respond than the 2014."

"The vehicle feels a little top-heavy at on-ramp curves, and could use a bit more acceleration capability. The handling is very crisp, and steering has almost no backlash. The toy shift lever is annoying primarily because in Canada we could use extra low gears chosen manually, and because I have been driving with floor and column shifts since 1971, so the location is bizarre."

"poor acceleration"

Anonymous, CA (2007 Toyota Prius)

"Even though my Prius is over 10 years old, it still has excellent acceleration when needed for highway ramps, passing, and sudden emergencies. It handles very well and surprises doubters who have driven it with me. The speedometer has always been off at higher speeds- must drive 62 to show 60 on the speedometer, for instance. Largest drawback for me is that I am short and must sit on cushions, but still have trouble seeing to back up ."

T B., OH (2007 Toyota Prius)

"It handles like what a cloud might be like, if you could maneuver and accelerate/stop a cloud. The acoustics, from front to rear, are sub-par. The Prius sound system is well designed and designed within the Prius package; a design that reflects an effort to accommodate visionary concerns: a rear camera inclusive of great window-seat design that facilitates a driver’s ease for safe driving. As the audio system is excellent, the regular communications within the Prius cabin are a personal strain for all passengers when performed between the back seat and front seat. For personal communications the audio system is not used in an advantageous manner to augment the utilization of those great electronic audio system acoustics in support of passenger communication. Passengers are difficult to hear. If this was due personal hearing abilities that would be understood; however, I fail to experience this is due personal hearing ability. This is a major driving complication under some circumstances! A well designed amplification-speaker system exists in the Prius: for great audio, but with additional engineering amplification added to the electronic audio system the Prius could be designed to facilitate passenger communication: producing a safer driving environment."

Anonymous, WI (2007 Toyota Prius)

"Acceleration is good, if the hybrid battery is charged fully, but a bit strained if the battery gets a bit low, like after using the A/C in traffic. The handling and performance is generally very good. My main gripe is how low to the ground it sits, but that is due to the aerodynamics of the design goals of best fuel economy."

DEL R., TX (2007 Toyota Prius)

"The ease of operation and the features are the best I have ever experienced. The 2007 base model I own is a bit too complex; however. The climate and noise elimination are spectacular. If one problem exists, besides the crazy bar across the back window slightly obstructing the review mirror reflection, the complexity of the overall system, that problem would be fine Toyota attention to detail by placing a speaker at every space within the interior in the reproduction effort for great sound."

"We bought the Prius because it is a hybrid & we care about the effects on the environment. Because it's a hybrid we get incredible gas mileage. We have gotten 40-50 mpg regularly. Plus it rarely needs to be repaired (which we have found to be true of all our Toyota's. (We've stuck with the brand through two Corollas, one Camray, one Cressida, and a 1997 Celica which I drive regularly!)."

"It's a Prius - efficient with fuel and in design. A joy to drive and surprisingly useful as a utility vehicle. Our only complaint about this car is the dreadful Xenon headlight system, which has delivered an odyssey of headlamp failures and poor illumination. It is something Toyota should have recalled, but never did, and is a major failing on an otherwise perfect car."

Robert L., NC (2007 Toyota Prius)

"Prius has been very reliable. The gas mileage has been such that the car has paid for itself in the money I’ve saved. The big battery had to be changed out, in the 9th year, but it was under warranty so I didn’t have to pay for that. I only had one other Repair needed in all these years. It was for a new water pump."

Now that it is an 11 year-old car, I'm getting about 48 MPG, which is still double the mileage I got with my Camry. Car gets all scheduled maintenance, and has not needed any other repairs.
