2003 Toyota Prius Reviews
Overall excellent reliability. I'm up to 150K miles and still running well. I have had to replace the catalytic converter (@120K miles), and have had some trouble with a seat belt anchor and a drink holder. Occasionally the vehicle starts up with the problem warning light on (!) but this resolves by itself in a few minutes.
