    My 2012 Prius C just turned 100,000 miles. In that time it needed new tires, brake pads, and a starter battery. That's it. It doesn't have much passing power but is fast enough off the line and can scoot at 80+mph on the Interstate. With good winter tires it handles up to 3" of snow well; above that and it has ground clearance issues. A nine gallon fill lasts me three weeks and on rural highways my average fuel consumption is 56mpg.

    Will definitely get another when this one wears out.

    Reminds me of the story of Al Gore's kid getting stopped/arrested/ticketed for doing 102 mph in a Prius on a freeway in Southern California.............. Toyota should have used that in an ad campaign..........

    They can scoot.............
