    No, he keeps his cars until some M******* decides to help him cube it.

    Oh wait, this was the guy who had the 300k+ gen 1 prius right? I still don't get how the heck someone can drive 52k miles in one year. That's about 1,000 miles a week isn't it? Either way that's awesome. Can't wait to hear how it's doing a year from now when it's at 300k.

    That is alot of driving for sure! I can see it though cause i put on 750-800/week. I just think it's sweet being that reliable of a product into the second generation and hopefully the third as well. Wonder who has the most miles on Gen 3 on this site?

    I have a 2009 Prius that only has about 40k on it...I feel like it is brand new! Good to know I'll have it for next to forever. ;-)

    My P3 is 26 months old and I just passed 20 miles. I feel like a such a slouch with people putting up numbers like that. :p

    The best hypermiling strategy is of course not driving at all...

    It's good to know the Prius can really eat the miles, but this guy has burned more gas than I plan to in a lifetime.

    Finally replaced front brake pads at 294,115 miles about two weeks ago. Original rotors still good. Somewhere around 295k tonite. 2005 FEH nearing 221k. So far so good same batteries on both vehicles.

    Aveo resting in the drive right now. Laid off for a bit. It has a trailer attached to it for hauling my fish trap portable fish house. I am going to look into a hitch hauler cargo carrier but not sure I will have alot of clearance. would be better then towing a trailer for sure. I get inspired reading this prius posting because I hope to own one when my car is done. I reliability and performance speaks for themselves. What a great car and would be perfect for me and my family. I can only hope to get 250k plus on my aveo. It is rusting under the front of the hood now I see. bubbling a bit. Good luck sorry to hyjack post.:)
