I'm selling my 2012 Prius V Hatchback.
I bought the car a few years ago to save on gas instead of using my truck as my daily driver. I purchased a new hybrid and no longer need the Prius. Because of this I only drive the car occasionally to keep everything lubricated and operational.

I'm an ASE certified master mechanic and bought this car when it had around 170k miles on it. I did a complete check of the car before purchasing and I wasn't dissuaded by the higher milage. Because the Prius has an electric motor that runs instead of the gasoline engine when possible, I knew the milage was to be taken with a grain of salt. The actual gas engine milage is much lower because of this. I've changed the oil every 3000 miles and performed all the maintenance myself.

I put new Michelin tires on when I got it. There's more than 80% tread left and will give you the Discount Tires warranty too. Cosmetically the car is in good but not perfect shape. Some of the outside trim is partially detached and has been since I purchased it. Also the front windshield was cracked when I bought it but the crack hasn't grown and it's not in a visually impairing location. The body has a few parking lot dings as well. The interior is in pretty good shape short of a few small stains on the headliner, again these were present when I bought it. The heated seats are fantastic in the winter. Bluetooth and voice control work without issue and the steering wheel controls make using them much safer. Power windows all the way around. Reclining rear seats that fold down if more cargo space is needed.

Mechanically the car is sound and will easily go another 100k miles easily with proper maintenance. Prius forums prove these cars can go half a million miles or more without any major mechanical work.

If you're looking for a well cared for and mechanically sound beginner or college car that gets amazing gas milage and is spacious and comfortable, this is your car. I have a clean title in hand. Thanks!
