I rented a Toyota Prius for a trip to Miami this past weekend. I generally have a heavy foot, and was still able to get 45.6mpg!
Despite the fantastic gas economy, I have a few problems with this car. Basically the ride is very loud, the seats are not very comfortable, and there really isn’t much trunk room. I can deal with the lack of space, but man is it a loud ride. You hear the buzzing of the tires on the road while driving. I thought my ears were ringing every time we got out of the car.
