    Hi All,

    Been a member of PriusChat since 2009. And the happy owner of a 2010 Prius model 5 since 2010. Bought it new and it has 61K trouble-free miles. I am selling, it getting a new vehicle. I have an ad in a couple local online places near me - but want to spread the word. I live in The Villages Florida which is an hour northwest of Orlando Florida. Here's a few pics, and under them - content of my ad with all the info. It is a SUPER GREAT example of a pristine Gen 3.>

    TOP of the LINE MODEL 5 2010 Prius. One owner. Looks and drives like showroom-new. Metallic red with bisque leather interior. 48-51 MPG. This Villager-owned Prius is stellar in its condition, features, versatility, care, and value.

    The 2010 Prius is always on the top 10 list of best cars, especially as used. Have all books and service records. Extremely reliable and maintained to a T by Toyota – just had the 60K check and synth oil change. So, all set for the new lucky owner for many years of happy and economical driving. Was $28K new -still have orig sticker.

    If you haven’t driven a Prius – you will be surprised – especially with this sport model. Looks great and drives so nicely. Only 61K miles.

    Excellent value at $12,200 – similar Prius (if you can find…) are $13,500 <> $15,000+ at dealers or Carmax. Again, this is a rare Model 5-Top of Line.

    Call Dean for an apt to see, or send a mssg. 352 728 3616

    Some of the features:

    – Lots of interior storage and 60/40 split rear seats

    – Leather interior including steering wheel

    – Heated seats with power lumbar support

    – Automatic climate control

    – JBL sound with Bluetooth and 6 disc CD

    – Remote keyless entry and start

    – 17″ wheels/tires (new Michelins with only 6K miles)

    – LED headlights, tailights, and fog lights

    – Advanced safety features (Prius rates very high)

    – Tinted windows and blindspot mirrors

    – Aftermarket automatic rearview camera and dashcam

    – Garmin GPS included

    – Metal Billet front grille, brushed alum door molding

    – LED side marker lights/signals

    – subtle pinstripes – light wood interior accents

    – headlight washers and all-weather mats

    – rear bumper applique and cargo net

    Only reason we are selling is that a friend got us a great deal on a new car. We were planning to keep our Prius forever (and maintained it that way).

    A very lucky person will be driving away soon in this wonderful Prius!

    Beautiful car!

    FYI, technically, the interior isn't real leather. It's mentioned several times in the ad.

    The 2010 Model year did have real leather, as does my IV.

    I think it is.
    Toyota went to Softex in subsequent years.
    But in 2010 they were still lining their vehicles with the hides of slaughtered cows.

    Well, I like to tinker. And found that since Toyota didn't have turn signals in the mirror or such... I got a LED marker light set at Pepboys- $25. The hardest part of the install was having that drill in my hand and deciding - this is it, I'm actually going to drill a hole into this new fender (after checking for clearance in the back of course). Install went fine and happy they've been there to alert other drivers. Here's a link to the Chat thread I had back then and the PepBoys product (at least I think this is the one, been 6 years:

    No OEM nav - Did not want to spend the $1200 (I think that was the cost), and my garmin worked perfectly fine, and can take out of car if I need it for a rental. I do miss the big screen etc for music - but not $1200 miss... And no backup camera but got a $45 aftermarket - one that sits on the dash and flips up/down when needed - on when reverse lights on. I made do.

    Yes, 2010 and 2011 models had real leather (perforated leather at that). 2012-2015 models had SofTex.

    Ad says Garmin is included. No factory nav (because the JBL audio has a 6-disc CD Changer. Factory nav had a JBL audio w/ 4-disc CD Changer. Also, the photos don't show a nav screen in the centre)

    You never told us what you're buying? Curious Cats want to know. :cautious:

    Have you had any offers yet on the 2010?

    What am I buying.....What am I buying? I didn't want to mention this in my ad, and hate to now. But I'm leaving the family, both the Prius and Toyota. Mind you the 2010 has been a fabulous car and still love it. Thought it was going to be our 'forever car'. We're 68 and live inFL, so...and only put on 6-7000 miles/year. Car is the Prius and have a nice golf cart. But, the bug hit me about 2 months ago, thinking about safety features and technology. I
    n the end, moving from Japan to Germany. Going with a .....Mercedes. I checked out their compact sport utility, the GLA250. Then checked into our MB dealer for test drives etc. Decided to go with a Certified 2015, white, beige int, 2wd, with blind spot detection at the very least. None in FL that filled the bill, and they would be on the lookout.
    I then monitored MBs site of CPOs up to 1K miles away - and one hit at the Fayetteville NC dealer. What we wanted + much more, 7,000 miles. MB extends the warranty 1 addtl year unlimited miles. This one MSRPd ar over $42K. I got a great deal and jumped on it. Flying up there Tues to pick it up and drive the 500 miles home.
    I was hoping the Prius would sell quickly, put on the market with minimal advertising Thursday - only 1 call so far. Perhaps a tough niche market...I'd rather not Carmax it or such. It's such a great Prius and has tender loving care.
    BTW - the MB has 208HP, but gets 25/35MPG. But prem gas... It's not much bigger footprint-wise than the Prius.
