    Hey, Stephen. Congrats. We just bought our first Prius yesterday - 2013 Persona with only 33K miles. I think we lucked out with a lease trade-in. So far so good.

    Any advice you could share as a Persona owner (or Prius owner)? Cleaning recommendations? Tire pressure? Others?

    THanks. :)

    If I may chime in:

    I greatly prefer hand-wash, though this time of year it can be onerous: I'm waiting for an off-course chinook*, lol. I'm using a Toyota car wash concentrate. Pay extra attention to the inside flanges of wheel wells. I also wax the car twice yearly, spring and fall.

    Tire pressures with the 17", I usually settle on 36 psi, all around. The low profile 17's ride a little harsher, and it seems to me the more you raise pressures above stock (33/32 front/back), the more you're stressing the suspension.
