    Hi all, I'm Jason in Kansas City. Been lurking/reading/researching for about 6 months (such a wealth of info here!), and I'm now the owner of a 2012 Prius Three! Got a great car with tons of life left - just under 54k miles, one owner, meticulous service records, extended warranties, plus the dealer gave me almost 2x the Blue Book price for my dying 1999 Ford Taurus as a trade-in.

    My soon-to-be parents-in-law each have a Prius (one 2010 and one 2011), so I had the chance to take a weekend test drive when visiting them in Omaha last winter. Being a big & tall guy (6'2", 315lb), space and comfort were concerns going in, but I had more room than in the Taurus. I was sold, it was just a matter of finding the right car at the right time. Last weekend turned out to be the perfect time!

    As a commuter for my teaching job (25 miles each way), having a reliable daily driver is a must, and being able to cut my gas consumption by ~60% is even better. The hatchback/liftback design and cargo capacity will be a huge help when transporting music instruments for my job as well.

    Anyway, glad to be here. Here are a few shots of my sweet new (to me) ride! IMG_1431.JPG IMG_1432.JPG IMG_1433.JPG

    Congrats on the purchase and first post (y).

    Used to live in Wichita and would use Olathe Toyota for parts as needed when we would drive up.

    If you are a DIY type, there are plenty of videos to help with typical maintenance items;).

    Only had my 2013 v5 almost 2 weeks and its just fun to drive! I'm an IT person and think the techie stuff is awesome. Driving part time (400-600 miles on weekends for Uber/Lyft) means a lot of drive time.

    Only thing left for me to try: parking assist.

    Will do that several times in an empty lot first.

    I Just purchased a 2011 Prius for my long commutes. Always been a toyota fan but never thought I would own a prius. So far I like it and im looking forward to what kind of mpg I can achieve!

    Not really a Newbie. Been gone a long-time away for a while. Originally I had a Gen II Toyota Prius '06. But now I have a Gen III Toyota Prius '14. Made a few "modifications". Toyota Corolla S alloy wheels and tires. Blacked out badges and black-chromed emblems... Will have more upgrades later...

    I used these forums to help me decide to buy a 2017 4 with the AT and Convenience packages, the dealer had it ceramic tinted for me.
    It's my first new car and have been very pleased with it. :)

    I installed a Draw-Tite hitch from etrailer for my bike and just recently upgraded all the interior and reverse lights to LED with a kit from PrecisionLED

    Ordered this from amazon, it had plastic tabs that fit perfectly into where the metal clips that held the grab handle in place were.

    I had ceramic tint put on mine 3 days after I bought it.

    What is that on your "oh crap!" handle as we call them here (keeping it clean)

    It's a sunglasses holder I got off Amazon, since there isn't one with the AT package.
    I'd post the link, but still have 1 more post to go (after this one) before I can. :rolleyes:

    We were a Scion family, I traded in my Hot Lava iQ for a Prius C. Twice the car and close to 15 mpg better. This is my wife's xD and a friends xB with my Prius in the background. IMG_20170710_083241_297.jpg
