    I'm picking up my new to me Prius on Wednesday!

    2006 with 144k. HI #5 package. 2 owners in the same family(parents and son) with extensive service records all done at the dealership. I'll post some pictures after pickup.

    I'm excited about saving a ton of money on gas coming from a 2002 RX300 and will be looking to get a second job delivering pizzas or doing SHIPT(maybe both) on the weekends. I'm saving for a house and I told myself once I find a more economical vehicle and purchase it, a second job to help save up was a must. I'll be getting some weathertech floormats and probably do the LED inside bulb upgrades. Other than that I'm just ready for more money in the bank.

    Here goes nothing!

    The drive home from Toledo to SW Michigan was great, 49.6mpg! Seller was fantastic, friendly, knowledgeable, and gracious to drive the Prius and hour closer to me to make the pickup easier. Even filled up the tank for me before I picked it up. I'll post pictures tomorrow :)
