Bought the 2020 hybrid rav4 awd yesterday. Hopefully will last as long as the prius. The rav4 is pretty amazing.

Will be swapping out for the factory black rims in a few weeks. They are same rims, just black. I think it will look even better.

Take out the battery, check each cell and sell the good ones to bass fishermen to power their 16 screens, 7 transducers and 2 trolling motors.

We traded it. Only got $500, but really doubt I would get much more and then have to deal with the riff-raff nonsense. They will send it to action and maybe make a few hundred. We made the deal yesterday and drove home the Rav4. Then took the prius today. That is why both are in the pic.

Everyone wants to sell a whole battery . When 80% of time it’s just corrosion on connectors between cells or at worse 1 bad cell in the pak.think of it like a bank of batteries in a boat . A cell is just like an individual battery. Just got a bunch of them . The cells bolt together and get corrosion on the connections just like a regular car battery.
just like rebuilding a battery pak for a power tool .

Company provided me one of these as well. I've ouI'18k miles on it since this summer. Not a bad car but for the price I liked the Ford Edge wayyyy more.

The hybrid is nice for hunting, I can drive through the property and get to my stand in near silence. Buds all want me to drop them at their stands on the way now instead of taking their big loud chipped and deleted diesels, lol

A bit of yellow paint and that Prius will be turning taxi tricks in NYC by Christmas.

250K is nothing on those cars. My 96 Nissan Pathfinder just hit 318K and it’s still my weekday driver. Preventative maintenance and inexpensive repairs have made it a joy to own and drive.

Dad just picked up a new Highlander about a month ago. (Mom put a racing stripe down the side a week later with their driveway rock wall. ) They're nice cars but the amount of excessive bling and electrical crap on those things drives me nuts. It's worse than their 2019 Camry. Of course at 82, maybe they need that stuff. Dad's driving isn't what it used to be... or maybe I'm just not a brave as I used to be.

He looked at the RAV4 but thought he needed real 4WD. I think it was just easier for him to get into with his bum hip.

Those black wheels will look sharp, Real!
