    I've decided to sell my 2014 Prius Plug-in - I loved the MPG, but my commute has dropped to 0, and may stay that way for a while. We've got more cars than drivers, and I'm switching over to my wife's car, a Subaru Crosstrek. with 8 inches of ground clearance I'll never scrape my bumper on another curb again!

    thanks to everyone on here for the tips, suggestions, and mind-share over the past 6 years.

    Oh, on a parting note, I can heartily recommend the Bissell SpotClean Pro carpet cleaner. I ran it across the seats, the carpets under the mats, and in the luggage area. The interior looks like-new now, and gave the car a fresh scent I should have done this before deciding to sell it!

    Now that you mention it, @Kurt Weiske avatar does hit several theatrical marks...

    ...And I'm back. :)

    After much deliberation I've decided to sell my wife's Subaru and keep the Prius. I bought a Bluetooth OBD dongle and ran a battery test, and it came back at 81% of capacity. Brakes are at 6mm/7mm, so I've got some time before I need to get those replaced.

    I compared the 28mpg I'm getting with the Subaru with 56mpg on the Prius, and couldn't stomach paying for twice as much gas.

    I'd cleaned the carpets and the upholstery to prep it for selling, now I get to enjoy the fruits of my labor!

    Wise choice, as long as you are not planning to go off roading. Great to have you back.;)

    Love the gas mileage even with my 2012 Prius v. Every new car I'll get will be a hybrid or there may be a BEV in the future.
