    Just hit 1000 miles friday night.

    No problems
    I just filled up with 100% pure gas and now am getting consecutive mpg over 60
    I just checked my tire pressure and only at 37 or so,
    so I need to get a tire gauge and fill them up, as I will expect another 1-3mpg, since they are very low. Want to go to 42/40 or more (max on tire says 51)

    Why would you think there should be problems? The Prius is a proven and very reliable vehicle.

    6300 miles. some mild rattling, but it's mostly from me tinkering with the car.. lol.

    nothing serious, and no problems otherwise.

    Have had 2 minor issues in 5000 miles:

    1. Navi got lost and put my position about 30 miles off. Stayed that way all day, tried turning car off/ on many times and finally recovered on its own. Glitch, never repeated.

    2. Ice nearly stalled as I came down a hill in EV mode Was about to pull out onto a 55 mph road. . Gave the car some throttle, auto switched from EV to Ice, felt a thump and some of the dash lights flickered. Ice caught, started and ran normally. Never repeated and no CEL. Bringing it in tomorrow for 5 K service. May ask to see if there is a stored code.

    6,200 miles as of today and zero actual issues, knock on wood.

    I'm not used to cars being reliable & well-sorted, as I've had lots of British & German cars in my past.

    My USB connection cuts out periodically. I've notified the dealer and they'll check it out at my 5000 mark. It's not something I feel a burning need to make a special trip for.

    One month old and the MFD touch display would not work, I made a service appointment 2 days later the touch screen started working again. so far the problem hasen't repeated itself...I'm confident it will then Ill take it in for diagnosis.I really like this car,it fits me to a "T", however lots of electronics and in the long run could spell trouble. I have 3 years/36,000 to run it through its paces.

    I noticed one of my rear doors makes a cling sound rather than the typical thud type noise other car doors make. I'm wondering if this is why I get so much wind noise when I get over 60mph. Also some marks on the interior, mostly on the doors. Not sure what caused them but it won't wipe off easily, which is about all I've tried. If these are my issues then I'm doing just fine. 2k miles btw.
