i don't do a lot of mileage so only fill the car up once a month and the Road tax is nil. I have a good insurance so the running costs are very good.

This car has provided 100% reliability in the 12 months I have owned it. It is very likely this will continue as there are few, if any, reported problems for the Toyota Prius.
Running Cost

5 out of 5

Very low fuel consumption (petrol) and low maintenance - no cambelt, no alternator, no starter motor, no clutch (all due to hybrid system). Official dealer servicing is low cost and friendly.

I like the car itself very much except for the view through the rear window, which is dire. The navigation system is a disaster because toyota seem not to have thought through the question of updating it effectively. The car came with "summer only" tyres and they are hopeless on snow. Toyota seem incapable of giving any sensible advice on winter tyres. My biggest moan concerns the warranty. It's a long story, but in a nutshell, toyota shortened the warranty period for the gen3 prius as compared with the gen2. After a short period, they restored the longer warranty, but not for those who bought during that short period. Requests to be treated like earlier and later purchasers bring no answer from toyota.

I have owned this car for three months, bought as used, reg 09 produced in 2010. It's done 36,000 miles, 44.1 mpg, no issues since I owned it, £0 road tax, insurance is not much higher than my previously owned 1.0L Yaris. The drawbacks I can think of are: 1. Poor vision ability from rear window. 2. Sat Nav can't be stopped when driving, until you arrive your destination or turn the car off. 3. Acceleration is unbearable slow on Eco model, so I have to use Power Model, otherwise I wouldn't be able to get in and out a roundabout quick enough. But I have to say it is a reliable car, I have brought peace in mind.

Compared with my BMW 530 I get nearly twice the MPG, pay half the insurance, Ł10 road tax and until this year Ł10 per year congestion charge but they have done away with that benefit , you now have to pay full price. Servicing is also cheaper

No road tax cost. Insurance is very good. Excellent MPG. As with foreign cars in general the cost of parts are quite high.

It is just simply totally reliable - no problems whatever despite its complexity and mechanical/electonic sophistication.
Running Cost

5 out of 5

Only ever able to get about Ł30 or less unleaded into tank at a top-up. Only spend about Ł50 per month on fuel. This is half what I would now pay for previous (diesel) Mercedes. Insurance is only Ł230 per year and no road tax or congestion charges. Cheap dealer servicing.

The fuel consumption is amazing and consistent, road tax is free and servicing is reasonable but the frequency of servicing, 10,000 intervals, negates a lot of the savings made elsewhere. 20,000 mile service intervals should be the norm these days.

While the economy is not as good as I had expected, the difference in price between unleaded and diesel still means it is cheaper on fuel than my old car

Insurance is cheap, no road tax, able to offset against corp tax, MPG great, service plan pay monthly and it has not been required to replace any consumables (brake pads etc..) until this month when the car needed front tyres.
