My sister recently traded in her "old" Prius for a new one. I don't think her's is a "V", as her husband's view of good fuel economy only stretches so far. Of all the vehicles in my extended family's fleet, these Priuses are the only ones I DON'T care to ever drive. I'll ride in them if the driver is going somewhere's I want to go...otherwise, I'd rather walk.
Good things about a Prius? Fuel economy, tho other cars are nearly as fuel efficent and some cost LESS than these Priuses. They also LOOK classy inside, but the plastics feel so hard and cheap.
Bad thing about a Prius (unless you are another car company or it's dealers)? The look like a metallic colored refrigerator box. Toyota, could you at least consider copying Hyundai's styling ideas?
Toyota wants you to think they are so "green", but their cars are THE definition of GREY boxes....ALL of them, not just Priuses.
