    114K Miles.

    Extremely reliable. The only unplanned maintenance it has ever had was a rear left wheel bearing.

    Consistent maintenance - All fluids every 4 years, 12v battery every 4 years. Traction battery perfect, Lithium plug in battery perfect. Do not drive far anymore. NOTE: the interior is pretty darn nice. I have covers on the seats that took the beating. Pics soon.

    The rear bike rack has been sold. The rear 1.25" hitch will not be removed. I have never towed anything with the car - just used it to haul two bikes. The roof mounted bike and basket are not included. I could let it go for an extra 1,000 though. I have too much blood sweat tears and $ into the basket , bike carriers, locks and bars. More pics soon, these are the first nice weather pictures I have found. Will take some as soon as I can wash her.

    Interesting. Your price is too low though. I sold my 2010 Prius II also with 114k miles for almost as much. Don’t let people try to take advantage of you. Also please share more pictures! Nice ride.

    I need to clean it up and take the winter tires off before I take any recent pics, but it looks good. Interesting thoughts. I just wanted to price well under the carmax prices. These do go for quite a bit more on the west coast.

    Price it above whatever you’re comfortable with, doesn’t have to be well below Carmax.

    My thinking is, I can roll up to carmax and get 9K for it. Somone can roll up to carmax and pay 15 for it. Im ok with that, I don't really need to sell it, but I dont drive that much anymore and have a gas guzzling 20 foot van I can use to get to work 1.6 miles away. My wife has a 2019 Prime that is great, although the rear flat floor and bigger boot is way more practical.

    If you're okay with not getting top dollar for your vehicle, and you need to get rid of it quickly, that's what Carmax/Vroom/Carvana/dealers are for. Since you said you don't need to sell it, I think time is on your side. I'd wait it out and post on facebook, craigslist, etc. At $11.5k you're going to get a lot of offers and interest, but they'll be more around $8-10k. It ultimately comes down to what makes you sleep at night.

    Do you mind me asking when you bought it and what you paid for it? Are you looking to make a profit? You can DM me if you want. Once you share that info on here, your chances of selling it to anyone on PriusChat are kinda screwed. They'll lowball you for life.

    We are the second owners. Got it in 2014 with 15K on the clock for about 23K if I remember correctly! My wife put almost 100K miles on it! That's about 8K in fuel.

    Not looking to make a profit - just cut down on the amount of vehicles I have. I just want two again.

    I also have a 1977 Mercedes for sale. I just want to maintain two vehicles - a 2019 Prius Prime and a 2009 Chevy Express 2500 with a high top. Yin and Yang... 50-100mpg vs 10mpg.

    Sweet, good plan. Now is the time to sell then. Now that I know when you bought it I know there's no way you would make a profit. I think your 11.5 price is fine. Carmax might even be fine. Whatever you're happy with.

    I was the exact same way. 3 cars was too much for just my wife and me. Now we're down to a Lexus CT200h and IS500. Like yours would be, it's the perfect combo. 45mpg and 19 mpg. Life is awesome.

    Two kids too. I just dont have the time or enjoy maintenance anymore! The Prime gets an oil change every November - if it needs it or not! Its so awesome, it gets a few hundred ICE miles. The oil comes out practically new. The 3K mile oil changes on the van's tractor motor is barbaric. But hey it can tow 10K lbs.

    I just cannot do it. The car has done me no wrong. How do I remove this post or change it to sold?

    You can edit the first post and you can leave it at best offers considered, just in case you revert back to wanting to sell.

    You can hit the "report" button to ask a mod to change title

    Good Luck.
    I feel for you!
    If you think you may want to sell it anytime soon, prices are super high for a good mpg auto (might go higher)
    but may also never see the top.

    I sold my 2015 last July to upgrade to a Prime
    Seriously thinking of upgrading my Prius C too!

    I regret not buying two primes in 2019 now! We got ours brand new for 21K (23ish out the door if I recall) and they had 3 more. Drove to MD.

    Dont say that word!!! haha
    Yeah feeling the same way, but been holding out for a PP, R4P or a BZX4 or something along the lines.
    I think I may be selling my C to carvana by end of march when my registration runs out
    and peddle my way to work on a bike.
    That way I can possibly max out the sale price and perhaps things calm down by fall.
    Worse case scenario I buy I hunk o junk to make it thru winter until inventory is up and I can find something.
    March 1st we will also see if Toyo raises (or lowers) the PP cash back

    My wife did not like my plan of driving a 20 foot 10 mpg van to work!

    It is, but my wife really does not want me to sell it.
