switched to p185 65 14 goodyear comfort tread with little or no loss in mpg much better traction and wear

Just passed 289K on my '04.
I'd say, expect another 220K without issues...
Mobil 1 oil

Original traction battery
Optima 12V battery
Front brakes at 168K
Rear brakes at 178K
Front wheel bearings around 120K

42 mpg still.

I have 212,000 on my '05 Prius bought new in that year. I do my own oil changes every 5k miles. Have Toyota techs do 75k maintenance. Can't remember replacing brakes, unbelievable lack of repair needed to mechanical and electronic parts. I'll likely keep this car until the Prime is available late in 2016 or in 2017.

Default 2006 Prius at 156k in Phoenix AZ

My 2006 Prius is currently at 156k, all driven in Phoenix AZ. The hot summers here seems to impact the longevity of some parts. Major parts replaced:

90k Hybrid battery (replaced by dealer under 100k warranty - lucky me!)
96k Water pump & serpentine belt
102k Radiator hoses, coolant, transmission flush
107k Halogen headlights
123k Inverter pump
85k & 146k 12v Gel battery - the heat must be getting to these
142k Rear shock absorbers
152k Front shock absorbers

Brakes pads are still the original. Cost per year including all replacement parts and regular service at the dealer averages to $900/yr. The car still works beautifully at 51mpg and I intend to keep it going past 200k - unless the hybrid battery dies before that.

2005 Prius 180K. All regular maintenance. 4 tire changes ~ $2000. Traction battery at ~150K. $3300. Interestingly, mechanics reported that squirrel cage fan that helps cool battery was covered with pet hair, eliminating airflow. Something worth checking periodically if you have pets. Their hair gets sucked into rear seat vent and gets stuck on fan blades.

Our 2004 Prius has over 140000 miles and works just like new. We have all the service done as in the Toyota book. One of the bargaining points we made when buying the car was free oil changes every 5000 miles so long as we own the car. We get them religiously avery 5K.

The only failure is that a button on the steering wheel that takes you to the screen that shows economy doesn't work. Not a problem as two finger taps via the dash mounted info and touch screen buttons gets you to the same place.

Everyone always asks what about the big battery. How much do they cost, how often do you replace it. Don't know the cost as the original is still working fine. On a recent vacation to Canada we used cabs several times. Virtually all the cabs we saw were Prius. Chatting with the drivers was interesting. They recommended against buying a new traction battery, if needed, and against partial replacement. Instead they recommended getting a good second hand battery from an auto recycler from a wrecked Prius with a good battery.

So long as our '04 meets our basic requirements, we will keep it. Requirements are: reliable, economical, safe.

Happy motoring,

Patrick

Default 147K and still going strong

Well, not as strong as it used to. Overall mileage has deteriorated a bit to 46.46 since new, body has some dings, like its owner, 12V battery, stering half-shaft and yoke, 3 sets of tires and struts all around are the only major repairs, several of which I ascribe to a hungry dealer. No plans to get rid of it any time soon.

My 2012 Prius C is rapidly approaching 95k and I've had no issues whatsoever except routine maint. and tires. Rolling along just fine.

Our 2004 Prius is doing fine going on 140000 miles. We love it. We will keep it so long as it continues to meet the criteria important to us:
1. Safe, all the safety stuff like traction control and antilock brakes etc works right.
2. It is economical, doesn't need too much maintenance to stay 100%
3. It is reliable, has to start first time every time and NEVER EVER strands my wife.

Only non scheduled maint was a water pump back before 100,000 miles and the only time it refused to start because I forgot to test the 12 volt battery and after nearly 8 years it quit. Provided 12 volts to underhood power point, started it up, and drove to get new batt right then.

YMMV
