    I'm considering buying my first Prius, a 2012 c 4, with 51K miles. I'd like to have a mechanic check it out. I don't know any in the area where the car is located and have found some of the mechanics I contacted have not been too eager to look at it. Is this common among mechanics? Do most folks take their cars to their local mechanic or to a Toyota dealer for maintenance/repairs? Can anyone recommend someone they trust in Northern Virginia or nearby? Anyone have experience with having a Toyota dealer look over a car you're not buying from them?

    A very secondary question -- where to find a cargo cover? This car is missing it and I can't seem to locate one anywhere on the internet.

    toyota, unless they know someone qualified. they will charge you one or two hundred. you can post here, in for sale thread, put 'wanted to buy'. someone might not want theirs, or the dealers sell them. welcome to priuschat, all the best!(y)
