    After seven months, I am still very pleased with my Prius. Just over 22,000 miles and average nearly 48MPG. :rockon:

    It is very nice I am over 30,000 mile and one year. It is $44 every 5000 miles for oil and rotation. I am getting 47 MPG in spring and fall, 42 MPG in summer and winter.

    I am at 22,000 miles also. It has been about 8 months. I get about 52 MPG in the winter with winter tires. In the summer it is closer to 60MPG. I did this yesterday.

    63.3 miles at 60.7MPG

    I get oil changes and tire rotated every 5,000. The car has never been back to the dealer. I predict years of trouble free service. I feel bad for those that wasted money on an extended warranty.

    I'm only at 14500 miles but started working mine on November 3rd. I fear I'm losing the race of who can put the most miles on their 2010 Prius.

    My last Toyota lasted 10 years and 305,000 miles. I am sure this one will be the same.

    I sold it for $4,500. Here are the pics I posted on Craigslist when I sold it.

    I picked up my 2010 V in June last year, and just surpassed 29,400 miles. Averaging 48-49 in the winter and 54-61 in the summer.

    Worth every penny I paid!

    Nice strategy of filling the tank before taking the pic!

    I had the camera in the car waiting to hit 300,000 miles. I pulled off the side of the road to take the pic. It did happen right after I filled that tank.

    That SUV got 16 MPG Highway, 16 MPG city. Now get 60 MPG. I am target to hit 62 MPG this tank.

    WOW very cool. I am even more surprised you've managed to sell it for over $4000 with that kind of milage and year.

    Did you see the pics. It looked new. And we all know Toyota's have a great resale value.

    It does look amazing.

    I've never owned a car over 150k so 300 sounds a bit too much for me because it just calls out for engine rebuilt for that milage. :)

    300k is easy. Had a 1998 Ford Mondeo Ghia taxi that had just over 300k on it before it dropped a piston ring. I sold it for scrap never expecting to see it again, but it must have been repaired and sold on as it now lives about 2 miles away.

    I often wonder when I see it if the new owner is aware of the true mileage or the previous hard life it had had. I don't want to be the one to tell him :eek:
