    This thread was wild from start to finish. I just had to take an anxiety pill. Glad you stuck with the Prius in the end. They are very cost effective vehicles. Andrew Grant, taxi driver in Canada was the first taxi driver to use a Prius back in 2001 I believe. This is his testimonial.

    I look forward to hearing more about your adventures in your advanced-tech Prius v! Thanks for sharing!!

    Curious why so many cabin filters? Do you smoke in it?

    Every 2 oil changes I check if dirty I replace, do not smoke.
    I'm on my 3rd Iin another 20,000 I will check again. Other than that I dont know what to say.
    however I do believe the vent is on all the time even with ac off.
    I fill a slight breeze all the time.

    Even recirculate mode allows outside air and dirt. It is possible to remove and vacuum them off in many cases.

    Sounds about right the cabin filters last less than engine. 20k.
    We've gone to washable K&N, better flow and cheaper on long run.

    I'm wondering if you ever had a check engine light on during all that mileage you put on if yes I would like to know what codes did you read ?
    Thanks

    Glad 2Fas got out of this pretty gracefully, the thread (addicting as it is), could certainly have gotten far worse.

    I'd have to say that looking at new/used prices, they should have given some free lube to the buyer of the old v.

    2fas, I haven't seen you updating your mileages for a while now. You must have 160K+ miles on your 2nd v by now?
