    I have a 2006 with 50+ K miles on it as well. My 12V battery recently failed. I had to replace my HID headlights several years ago.

    It is a good idea to drain and refill (not a flush) the transmission fluid (Type WS Toyota ATF) every 60k miles. This is not in the list of items Toyota says to do, but a long lab test sequence on Prius ATF shows that it is worth doing. Your dealer should charge about $100 for the job.

    You should also consider changing the engine and cabin air filters (it is a 30k mile interval item), but as it is easily done by you, just buy the filters at the dealer.

    Be sure to check your tires since there's a decent chance that your second set is starting to get worn (and if you're still on the original tires you're long overdue). You might want to get the alignment checked out too.
