    I'm at 28,000 miles and I'm in the same boat. I had to replace a tire less than 5k miles ago due to my father running over debris on the highway.

    At 25k I was told I needed a new cabin filter and air filter so I let them do it.

    They should have done both of those at 20k miles.

    They recommend air filter and cabin filter at 30K. My dealer told me that my filters are due but they've inspected them and said that they're still clean and to change them at 40K. At 40K dealer didn't say anything about the filters so they're still clean. I replaced them at 45K and they're still clean. I wasted $50 on filters. I'm at 53K right now. I won't replace them til 120 or 150K.

    Our family Prius now owned by my daughter is at 173k miles. Total of $68 in repairs, $1750 in maintenance and tyres.

    Not including insurance, total cost of ownership calculates out to 14 cents a mile. Pretty damned amazing when you consider that the average American car costs more just for fuel.

    I'm at only 34000km but.....


    Had to get new GPS head unit. We tried everything but the car had a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang complex and would suddenly show it was 140km+ away from actual location!
