Re: What's your opinion on these rims style/function

Cool.
I want to order these. Just not sure if they (Enkei) are a good company or how much negative effect the rims will have on my MPG.
If I get these, I will use the same stock tires, so...

Re: Is my dealer responsible?

I spoke to the service manager today.
She assured me the 5K was done, quoting "oil change and putting on tires".
Putting on tires???

I asked for that paperwork to be mailed to me. I'm curious...

Re: Is my dealer responsible?

Oh, so if I wanted (or have to) do it myself, at 5K, all I do is swap the front tires with the back and all is well?

Re: Sharkfin Antenna

Well, you can stick it anywhere you like...but the hole in the roof for the antenna wire is in the back where the whip is currently located. If you chose to place it elsewhere you'd need to run the...

Is my dealer responsible?

If my dealer sold me a 'demo' 2008 Prius at just over 5K miles (only Toyota owned it before me), should they have performed the owners manual 5K maintenance tasks?

If the EV isn't worth it(or barely is), why does Toyota install it factory on other continents?

How cold does it need to be to use the heater block?

Re: Anyone have aftermarket Sirius installed?

My signature has a link for pics with my DIY Sirius mod in some. I took advantage of the aux input.
