2001 Toyota Prius - $2000 - Madison Wisconsin
 
Its not mine. If the guy can be talked down a bit this could be a great car. Send the pack off to hybridbatteryrepair.com or buy a salvage yard battery pack and try to fix it yourself. I do wonder how long the pack will last on it though as he says it still drives...

This is just what I have been looking for, too bad its not an 03/04 instead of an 01.

Anything I should be looking out for on a Prius that vintage? I have no clue what game over things I should look for and a battery doesn't seem like a real biggy to me, but mechanical/xmsn would be.

Thanx

Ryland said some of the first gens had transmission problems? Nabbing an oil sample could probably tell you if its going bad (though I don't know what actually goes bad in them).

Was it possible to hypermile a first gen up to the really high FE numbers 2nd gens could sustain?

I don't know if slip streaming worked on gen I or not.

Ah well might be sold already.

In city driving I would definitely think so. It just has different speed points. For example, the speed at which the engine turns on might be different. I also think the EV mode speed is lower than the 2nd gen, but thats a non issue unless you get a plugin kit.

WOW a 10 year old Prius has a KBB of under $3k ? my 96 Voyager has a KBB of $2600

WOW. by and large you can NOT save money buying a hybrid (new). but you sure can at $2000 :-) hehe

Good luck finding one though, nearly impossible to find any in the wild and when they are they are usually WAY overpriced.

no ****,

I just picked up my 01 "chick magnet" for $2200
(also picked up a 120 mile/day commute)
the fuel savings should pay for the purchase price of the car in the first year

this is what I'm trying to figure out.

(I've not had much luck for info on the first gen's) :(
