    My 2008 with 227,000 miles finally hit the end of her life. She had been burning oil for a long time. I replaced the catalytic converter about a year ago. She had the initial hybrid as well as 12v battery. She treated so well that I wanted desperately to find another Gen2.. well, my prayers were answered! I found one in the exact same color with only 67,000 miles. Just a baby! The carfax is impeccable. Oil changes every 5,000 miles from day 1. Water pump replaced. Battery is in perfect condition.

    As the fates would have it, I managed to hit truck tire tread on the highway and my insurance accepted at $1200 comprehensive insurance claim.. so, I cashed it out and put it towards the new car. ALSO.. as the fates would have it, the catalytic converter was stolen from the new one.. soooo.. they offered me $800 for my 2008 and are going to put my 1 yr old cat on my new baby. $6000 including tax and tags out the door!!!

    I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am right about now. I’m going to tint her up, move my all weather mats over, put a new radio in and put some seat covers on.. gotta remove the pinstripes too.

    WHAT A SCORE!

    You lucky dog! You’re smart to not “upgrade “ to a gen3, they are nothing but trouble with the headgasket issues, inverter issues, break issues... gen2 and gen4 are the best!


    I’ve often thought about trying to find a old low mile gen2 one day. I think that would be awesome!

    The only concern would be if the combo meter was replaced with one at 000000 67,000 miles ago.

    It definitely wasn’t. This beauty is in near mint condition inside and out. I’m so happy right about now!
