    Sorry in advance if this is the wrong place to post this. If so, let me know and I'll move it.

    I live in Mississippi. There aren't many Prius Vs for sale around here, and the ones that do pop up for sale are usually older than I want. I'm not in a huge hurry to buy a car right now, but I've been looking for a while and this one seems like a good deal. It would require me flying or taking a train up to Chicago and driving it back (12 hours).

    I don't mind doing that at all, if it's the right car.

    I plugged in the VIN on the Toyota Owners page, and it seems to have been regularly maintained with no issues. What do y'all think?

    The VIN is - JTDZN3EU2HJ073026

    It's a 2017 Prius V Five with 52K miles for $17,000. I found it on truecar.

    welcome!

    if that is the best price you can find, it sounds like a winner. are you aware of the head gasket issue?

    I found another one that's $1000 less, but has 20k more miles.

    Is that an issue for 2017s in particular, or all Prius?
