    Purchased in March 2020. I gave it lots of TLC since hoping to keep it for a long time. Selling because I am in the market for a non-hybrid car. Smooth ride, great mileage 48-55 MPG.

    New tires, new 12v battery, new brakes, newly replaced refurb hybrid engine battery. Selling as is. Clean title. (scroll down for description of all services and parts replaced)

    Touring package with Bluetooth, JBL speakers, and multi cd changer, navigation etc.

    -new REFURB hybrid ENGINE battery replaced at 229k miles (receipt)
    -Consistent oil changes every 4K with oem Toyota filter
    -Car registration completed in October 31, 2021 with smog check
    -Purchased at 245,000. Current miles 272,673 will continue to go up in small increments for quick trips to the store.
    -ABS system lights have all come on in the last week. ABS. VSC. Tire pressure and Brake lights (even if brakes are disengaged). No idea why. Selling the car as is. Photo shown.


    2020 TLC
    -New spark plugs replaced
    -New brakes and new rear rotors (receipt)
    -Full transmission flush and all fluids replaced
    -New passenger fog light (receipt)
    -Front tires Kumo Solus replaced Spring 2020 at America’s Tires (receipt)

    -Wheel alignment in June (receipt)
    -New 12v battery from Toyota (receipt) replaced July 2021
    -New cabin air filter replaced July 2021
    -New water pump and drive belt (October 2021) done at Toyota dealer (receipt)


    Will include:
    - All seasons front floor mats purchased from Toyota 2020
    - Original Toyota sunshade purchased 2020
    - Belkin audio connector with lightning audio cord for iPhone to play music and take calls with aux in surround sound

    The cons:
    -Unknown of how many owners
    -Front driver seat has more wear and tear than other seats. Rear seats are in perfect condition.
    -Outside panels and doors have dings, dents and scratches (believe the last owner didn’t care for the car)
    -Driver door makes an odd noise when closing. Believe the weather stripping is very worn down

    Carfax or any auto reports for due diligence will be buyer’s responsibility. I will be happy to share what I know as an owner.

    The braking issue is concerning. Your average mpg shows 35 mpg now on your MFD, not the steller 48-55 mpg you were getting before.

    Texted with Seller, asking price is $6000

    The lights just came on 2 days ago. All the lights at the same time. I’m not a mechanic and I was intending to sell it before that happened. I don’t know what is wrong exactly. And the mpg was low because I recently filled up the tank. I usually get between 42-45 MPG on the screen when I finish up a tank.

    Listing at $6k OBO
