I just bought my wife a used 2008 Prius with 315,000 miles... Wow... what a car! This thing is quiet, smooth and drives as nice as a 2015 with 30,000 miles that I test drove recently. I kid you not. The first owner drove is from Kansas to Canada weekly, so he drove the $hit out of it on the highway. Everything works and Battery is strong. We averaged 47 MPG driving 77 MPH on a 50 mile trip with the tires all around 24psi... This was driving it home from where I bought it. I aired up the tires and the MPG's seem to be climbing a little bit with my wife driving it... she doesn't know how to hypermile it yet. I'll be teaching her. I think I'm going to buy one for myself!
