    Looking to get rid of my Gen 3, it blew a hole from the bottom and spewed out a lot of oil. How much should I price it for? Just passed 200k miles, the paint isn't in the best of condition. Everyone from the tow truck driver to the uber that picked me up wants to buy it from me, but I dont know how much it should go for.

    I just replaced the tires with new ones 2 weeks ago too.. boo!!

    traction battery is in great condition as it was just serviced last year and had some cells replaced

    A 2010 Prius in rough condition, in the California, with 200,000 is probably worth about $2000-3000.

    Subtract what it would cost to do a heart-lung transplant and you'll have your answer.....
    Al the tow truck driver might be able to stuff a motor in the car for $1000 - or even less if he buys a 2010 that was totaled in a rear-end collision....but then there's time....parts....hassle.

    I'd start at $1,500 and let somebody talk me down.

    What something is worth is the amount both the buyer and seller agree to.

    "I had a few stints put in last year so my heart is in great condition." Errr, no. No it isn't. ;)

    Since you're in California, I'd start at $2k and let the first person who A) shows up and B) throws A real cash offer at you take it.

    GOOD LUCK!

    Here's a Gen 3 in nearly identical condition w/172k. Might contact them and see how their deal is going (or went).

    That's because your a vacationing snow bird :p.

    If you were up north, I'd bet that "Cranky new Englander" shoe would fit;).

    But that'll happen soon enough(y).

    My wife was wearing a fit bit while here and one day we went to Toledo (outside of Madrid) and we did 35000 steps (equivalent to 68 flights of stairs):cool:.

    I'm not a huge fan of European cities either with all the uneven walkways, which I'm not sure how we'd do this later in life;).

    And sometimes you don't know if what we would think is a walkway is also a street:eek:.

    But trying to do as much as we can while we can(y).

    I'm 38 and I can't imagine doing that:oops:.

    Definitely a younger man's activity;).

    I'll stay back, enjoy the paella, Iberian ham and wine:).

    Then catch a cab to make up the difference(y).

    The grilled octopus is fantastic:).

    The wife had prawns for dinner tonight and they also looked great;).

    She didn't share, but I had paella and was happy with that:love::

    Salmon has also been very good. I agree with your seafood in Barcelona suggestion(y).

    Got a chance to walk the beach? I visited Barcelona many summers ago, we walked from 10am to 10pm, I was younger and in much better shape. So much in love with the food and sceneries! :love: Miss that place, and hope to visit once more n watch a match in Camp Nou before Messi retires.
