Great small economical vehicle.

My 2003 Toyota Prius is a reliable, car that gets great gas mileage. It always gets me where I need to be, at an affordable price. Despite that fact that the seats are relatively hard and uncomfortable for long car drives, and the style of the car makes the wind rush by quite loudly, especially at highway speeds, I can't deny the fact that this car has made it over 182,000 miles without any big problems. I really appreciate that in a car.
