    Hi guys! A friend of mine wants to order for a used PIP from the states, in some months time. He just likes the PIP so much, that he's contemplating selling his Camry hybrid, to buy the PIP.

    What should he be looking at, in terms of maintenance, and all that?

    Thanks

    Same as the regular hatchback except that grid charging the battery is not possible. Nor has it been necessary yet for anyone I know of.

    One other difference that really isn't significant is that the HV battery has two cooling fans and they are easier to access for cleaning.

    You might also get away with less frequent oil changes if you drive a lot in EV mode, but I change mine every 7,500 miles or so anyway.

    LOL!!! If he has that much money, I know where he can get a 2014 Advanced with 60k miles for $18k or a 2015 Base with only 21k miles for $21k. (y)
