3 Years with my 2012 Prius

Post by Lurch »

It's been an amazing little car for me.
It's always ready when I am.
I love it. It's a bit small, but built to last.

Nice. It's nice to see a 2012 still going strong. How many miles on it? Do you drive it a lot?

It's got 120,000 on it now. It had 108,000 when I got it.
So, about 4,000 miles per year is all I drive these days.
I change the oil 2x a year, a lot of around town short trips.
They say the Generation 2 Prius are better than the Gen 3 Prius.
But this is the Prius C (for city), and they say these are more reliable than the Gen 3 Prius sedan of the same era.
These are also the smallest Prius but it's quite roomy inside.

Oh, I not very familiar with them other than a few friends have them and swear by them. I didn't know they made that many different models i.e. "C". Interesting.

I wasn't either until I got this. I had a 2016 Ford Fiesta and after the ignition switch failed, I wanted to go back to foreign cars so I got this.
Soon after getting it, I was afraid I bought a car I'd regret, but the more I learned about it, the better it looked.

They also have the Prius V that's the biggest Prius, and it's like a station wagon.

This is the Generation II Prius (2003-2009), supposedly a better car than the Gen III Prius.

My Prius c is still going strong.

How come photos seem to disappear once they were posted here?

The old attachments from the vBulletin forum did not translate to the new platform (all file names are hashed/encrypted with a "salt" different for each user, and placed in some random subfolders based on dates).. New attachments should be ok though.

It shows up now, thank you.
If it says "image" that's a good sign.

Looks like you take great care of that thing. Also, that countryside looks awesome.
