    IMG_5082.JPG That is encouraging. I have 82000 and drive about 100 miles a day. I drive all freeways and still have the original tires. The dealer says my brakes are almost like new. I really like my #RedHotPriusC see me on instagram .

    Yes, those are stock steel wheels with painted or plastidipped hubcaps. I did the same exact thing to mine with black plastidip but I now have the factory alloy wheels

    The tire is the same as stock, only the wheel is wider but the tread patch is the same. Looks like a good fit. Turns lighter more freely if that makes sence, and rolls off the line cleaner. I will keep you posted on the MPG. Last steel wheel tank was 56.4 MPG

    Great post on the 100K+ miles. I am very enthused to see this as I just bought my first Prius today! 2014 Prius C, used with 41K. $14,550 out the door. I also purchased the Certified Platinum Warranty, however I'm second guessing the additional warranty after seeing this post. Thanks for the info gang!

    I've been a lurker for a while and finally decided to register. My C hit the 100k mark last month and was purchased in March 2012. I replaced the factory tires at 62k miles because they had horrible road noise but plenty of tread left. I've had to dynamat the headliner around the sunroof but other than that no problems and just oil changes/filters.

    As for how it got that high I commute regularly between Temple and Fort Worth, Texas. Before that it was between San Antonio and Fort Worth. It's also been to Telluride, CO and pretty much everywhere on the east coast.

    So no filters or fluits,or wipers or 12v battery? I just hit 25k. Dealership says 30k service will cost $300. Why would that be?

    They are charging for replacing the air filter and cabin filter. This service will also include oil and filter and possibly tire rotation. Save yourself the money and have them just do the oil and filter change and you buy the air and cabin filter and replace it yourself.

    Someone was telling me this past weekend their Honda Civic Hybrid made 600k miles and never went through a single battery. Hope this is the case for the Prius C

    Congrats! I have 110k on my april 2012 c1. Oil every 10k, tire rotate every 5k. 3rd set of tires (original road hazard damage, 2nd set ecopias are terrible!, 3rd set dunlop doing well). Original pads, drove straight and true perfectly untill 100k when i hit a drivethru curb, now pulls left ; my tire guy says can't be fixed. Interior great shape, shampooed seats a couple times, ac power sticks a bit (graphite fix probably), rear driver door cant be opened from inside, probably due to 10mil pizza deliveries. I added cruise , subwoofer, tinted windows. Best car I ever had. Will drive it til the wheels fall off.

    100,000 k in 4 years? I have a 2012 Prius C 2 and got about 50,000 K on it. Winter I get 30-40 MPG. Summer I get 50-60. Right now it is 80-90 degrees out (Chicago, IL) and I am getting 50-60 MPG.

    My local deal has specials for all of these for less than $50 but I often go elsewhere for the oil changes and Discount Tire for the rotate and balance since I put them under their warranty the week I bought mine. I'm now over 71k and second set of tires. I bought mine new with ~250 miles in Oct 2012.

    I am feeling like mine is not driven enought, with only 42,000 miles. Glad to see that Toyota has done it again, building total reliability. I applaud the craftsman at Kanto Auto Works! :):)(y)(y)
