Here's my first 1k miles Road Trip review: Road trip FROM/To: SF/Bay to LA Hwy Terrain: Flat to 4100 Feet climb to Flat Load: 2 Adults, 3 Kids on 3 Car seats and Luggage in the trunk Time of day: Mid-morning Sunny Sky Total Miles: 367 AVG MPG (computer/actual): 38.6/37.44 Driving Style: Normal with A/C on doing 75-80 MPH flow of traffic FROM/TO: LA DRIVING Hwy Terrain: Mostly Flat Load: 1 Adult no wife & Kids with empty trunk Time of day: All day clear sky Total Miles: 371 AVG MPG (computer/actual): 43.3/41.2 Driving Style: Normal with A/C on doing on 5 - 45 MPH during LA stop and go highway traffic to no traffic traffic doing 70 and above MPH highway flow of traffic. Road trip FROM/To: LA to SF/Bay Hwy Terrain: Flat to 4100 Feet climb to Flat Load: 2 Adults, 3 Kids on 3 Car seats and Luggage in the trunk Time of day: Night with Rain Storm over Tejon Pass Total Miles: 337 (reset the trip ODO before Tejon Pass) AVG MPG (computer/actual): 35.8/32.6 Driving Style: Normal with A/C on doing Mostly 75 MPH and above except 20 minutes idle on stopped traffic due to freeway closure then 45-60 MPH at Tejon Pass. Road Trip Overall AVG MPG is 39.2/37.0 with a total of 1075 miles logged. My biggest question was, will 3 car seats (for 1 , 3.5 & 6 years old) fit in a V? The answer is yes and the seatbelts (for the 3.5 & 6 year old) can be secured fairly easily. Trunk space is what I expected with plenty of room for all of our luggage and a stroller (not an umbrella stroller). The drive was pretty comfortable. My Wife and I felt great arriving LA. The kids were comfortable on their car seats. I used my iPhone as my Music and Navigation source over Bluetooth and it worked perfect. I was pretty impressed with the ride comfort and with the pitch and bounce control. Going through some long stretches of rough roads on highway I-5, the V’s pitch and bounce control kept the V on it’s on lane with minimal corrective action on my part. I never really understand this technology but it seems to work as described. The V is pretty stable on the road even with the crosswinds we encountered going through 41 miles of Tejon Pass (4100 climb). I played around drafting a big rig going 60 MPH (when wifey was sleeping) and the MPG showed 75 MPG for 2 minutes… impressive. My Wife’s only complaint was the window needs tint so I took care of this while in LA. OFF TOPIC BELOW: I had three requirements prior to purchasing the V. 1. It needs to get 40 MPG and above (as my commute car) 2. Seats 2 adults and 3 car seats with a descent trunk space (for short/long road trips) 3. It has to be under 30K. The short list of cars were VW Sportswagen TDi, Mazda5 and Prius V. Only Prius V met all of my requirements and I'm very happy new owner of a Prius V (especially with the average 47 MPG on my daily commute to work).
