Got a one-owner '02 Prius with 101k for $4400 ($5200 out the door). Original owner was 68 years old. I swear I can't find one exterior speck of rust anywhere even though salty midwest winters can be rough. Only small rock nicks and a small door ding from what looks like another car door. Main battery was replaced at 79k as a warranty repair. Old manual had the previous owner's name and I found her phone number so I have a source of information I might explore soon. Still working on my first tank but I'm about 75% highway/25% city and I'm getting just under 49mpg. I need to do some serious studying on how a hybrid engine works and what to watch out for. Likes.... -Fuel economy: My god.....I doubt I'll ever own another gas exclusive car again. -Quiet ride: You can hear a pin drop even if the gas engine is cranking. -A/C: Ice cold for a 10 year-old car. REAL cold. I could transport polar bears. -Looks: I'm married so I'm not out to impress anybody, but I truly believe the first generation Prius is better looking than the current design. Dislikes..... -Cassette: Really Toyota? Even in 2002 cassettes were way obsolete. I will be installing my XM XpressR unit but will have to go the way of an FM adapter attached to the antenna. Not exactly easy with the antenna where it is. The cassette adapters I have are very noisy and I found the sound quality far better with my preliminary test of the FM transmitter. I'm not the best at car radio installation but I think this will suit my needs just fine. I will miss my old stereo's USB connection that my daughter just inherited. -Shifter: Why up there? For my height, it totally blocks my sight of some of the radio controls. I could go on but I really would like any advice on things I should look out for. Can a visit to my local Toyota dealer give me a service history if the old owner went to the stealership? Belts, hoses, water pump advice.....I'd like it all. Most of all, do you think I got a good deal?
