    Welcome to PriusChat! i hope you enjoy your Prius as much as I enjoy mine!

    Two items not in the schedule you might consider:

    Drain and fill the transaxle with ATF WS. (I recommend 30,000 miles then at 100,000 miles and every 100,000 miles)

    Bleed the Brakes with Techstream software, with the 12 volt battery disconnected. Prius brakes are complex, this is not as easy as other cars. (Brake fluid picks up water, which promotes rust and lowers the boiling point, both bad. How frequently it needs replacing depends on the humidity where you live. Miami should be more often than Las Vegas)

    Jimbo summed it up good.

    I will add that techstream is not necessary for brake fluid change/flush.

    I just changed my brake fluid in both my Gen3 2015 (few days ago @28k) and also my 2014 Prius C (2 weeks ago @44k),
    without techstream

    Although, i will admit that I not only watched @NutzAboutBolts video 10+ times,
    I also watched a couple "C" videos and read dozens of threads about it before the attempt.

    Thanks to @Mendel Leisk for always providing the repair page link in each of these posts about the
    How to without techstream secret dance.

    Here's that info again (attached). One thing that's very verbose in the document is the bleed order. A picture helps:
