Owned for 3 years and 130k miles. On the plus side no breakdowns but 2 recalls. Fuel consumption on the t spirit is about 48mpg. Service costs high. Handles poorly. Brakes are a little unpredictable at times. Plastic trim finish looks cheap but no mechanical failures… Read Full Review

My initial reticence to even sit in this vehicle (because lets face it, the Toyota Prius CVT family car looks weird) was replaced almost immediately by a huge childlike grin at the sense of fun and doing something new. At low speeds the car is powered by its electric motor so no noise, nothing, its like a bumper car but on steroids because the acceleration in this 1.5 litre is top notch, then the transition to the diesel engine is almost seamless. It handles very well even though it is one of… Read Full Review
