    Hi Everyone,

    I am wondering what some of you 200 000 milers think about buying a 2006 Prius with 345 000 kms (214 000 miles)?

    Should I buy it? How much should I pay? (asking is $7500 australian) which seems pretty steep to me.

    Other prices to give you an idea of the Australian Market:

    2007 145000km/90 000 miles $13 775

    2007 60 000km/37 000 miles $16 999

    2006 86 000km/ 53 000 miles $15 000


    What do you 200 000 clubbers think your cars are valued at?
    What questions should I ask re care, servicing and maintenance?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Love Sunshiney

    If it were me I'd stay well clear. The Prius is a great and dependable car, but with that sort of mileage all bets are off. My guess is that the car has been well maintained to make it that far, but it is at the point where something will go wrong with it sooner rather than later.
