I put a lot of miles on my Prius. I bought it in Nov. 2004. I now have 85K miles on it. Everything is working fine. The battery continues to charge with no evidence of fading. My average MPG is about 49 over the life of the car. True, I have to explain to people that I am not an enviro whacko, just a gadget guy who drives a lot of miles. My car has much more than broken even over my previous VW Passat, which averaged 24 MPG. But to each his own.

‘Tis true what you say, “to each his own”, I’ll buy that. The other side of that is for the kooks to shut their mouths over what I prefer to buy, drive and use, my money, my business. We usually put from 150,000 to 180,000 on our American (I guess I must qualify that and say MOSTLY American made given the internationally made parts in them) cars/trucks/SUVs, in our 60s we’ve bought quite a few. 85,000 is nothing in our books, you ain’t started yet...
