    First drive and I'm liking electric mode. One pedal driving will take some getting used to, still odd being in an electric that shifts, but liking it so far.

    Probably going to buy a Gen 3 Prius or Prius V and drive it until next Fall or when the market comes back to earth, whichever is sooner.

    I've put just over 100k in 2 years on a Gen 3. The only repairs have been 2 wheel bearings (done at once) and a brake caliper pin that seized. It's been the most dependable and lowest cost per mile vehicle I've ever had.

    The two biggest potential problems on them are EGR issues that may or may not lead to head gasket failure. I'd suggest cleaning the whole system ASAP on one just in case. Brake booster failures (covered by an extended warranty campaign from Toyota for something like 10 years/150k) are other big money repair that could crop up.

    Some people complain of oil consumption issues and swear you need to change the oil every 5k. I run 15k intervals and haven't noticed any consumption yet. I also did switch to a 0W-30 a little after 100k as well. That may or may not have something to do with that. 2015-2017 Gen 3s use different pistons and rings. Some say that has something to do with consumption as well.

    I'd be wary of hybrid battery in the earlier ones and the cars that have sat a lot due to the pandemic. The cars clearly like to be used regularly. The older they are, and the longer they sat around idle are the ones most like to have degraded battery packs and might be on borrowed time. There are apps that help estimate pack life.

    Re: Midsize SUV Shopping/Research

    Our 2013 Prius V 3 has 152,000 miles. Consumes zero oil. We bought it for $6,000. Now asking prices are up by at least $2,000.

    It does seem like social media groups amplify problems. There are tons of these cars with really high mileage. Interesting user community as they are owned serious car guys, misguided environmental do-gooders, cheapskates, delivery and taxi firms, and a bunch of people who own gas guzzlers like full-size 4WD pickups*.

    For us, living in the city or my daughter driving around a college campus, they’re terrific. Highway they are tolerable, weekday commuting is fine but they are buzzy and not especially economical at 70-80mph highway speeds.

    * which all get “22-23” here….

    I fit 4 out of 5 of those

    ...and I only get 20-21 out of my truck if I stay out of boost enough.

    The wife did lol...they are almost the same vehicle...I think I would have gone with the palisade cause I believe you can get drivers seat memory on a lower trim...I would have liked the rear bench seat over the captains chairs for the dogs...probably not as long of a wait either

    Joke is on me. A 2012 with 152,000 is FS locally for $9,995. Trying to live without another car for the school year so probably hold off. No sense feeding the inflation.

    Anyone use the Costco buying program? Kind of reluctant to sign up given how little inventory is around. But my van doesn’t fit in most Boston parking garages.

    Re: Midsize SUV Shopping/Research

    I did for my Bolt EV about a year ago. I brought it trough the dealer i worked at and there was a costco member rebate for another 2 or 3 grand off the car.

    As much as I want to get GM to buy it back because of the recall, there is no way in shit, that im getting my wife another EV for that cheap.
