    I'm the new owner of a 2017 Prius Two with ~114000 mi on it. Single owner with pretty complete records from the dealer. I've admired the Prius from afar for some time and when my VW Passat 1.8T 5 spd wagon's heater core began to leak, I diecided it was time. It had 336,000 mi on it with the original clutch and turbo and so was well cared for. My duaghter has a 2015 Prius (also recently acquired) with a little over 110,000 mi on it.

    So far, I'm quite pleased! It's great to go from 27 mpg (at best) on premium fuel to 54 mpg on regular. Plus this car is much quieter, rides nicer and has lots of "nice" things my old VW didn't have. This is an impressive bit of engineering!
