Well, not the FIRST time...

Hrm... I'm assuming you bought it used within the last 11,112 miles, then? Since all the numbers (assuming more than one number) were the same at 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99, 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888, 999, 1111, 2222, 3333, 4444, 5555, 6666, 7777, 8888, 9999, 11111, 22222, 33333, 44444, 55555, 66666, 77777, 88888, and 99999 miles as well. :p

But those are not six in a row - and "all" includes the 100,000 digit, too. :) In those, there were blanks instead of numerals.

You forgot 000000!
Actually, at that time it was blank blank blank blank blank 0 :p

Also, Pikachu is a 2001 Prius. His five year anniversary is coming up in less than a month.

And he had 3 miles when I bought him, so I can't be ABSOLUTELY sure of my claim above, but all trends point to that being the case.

Congrats RSnyder! Keep going and you may see something such as this in the future, taken in June, 2002 of my Mazda B2200 (still going at 325,000+):

Wow Eric, that's impressive! What year is the B2200? I'm guessing you've slowed down your use of it in the last 3 years (or it would be over 35 years old!) Are those all your miles or did you buy a used taxi? :)

It's a 1988 that I drove off the lot on April 19, 1988 with 6 miles on the odometer. Yes, I have slowed down it's use over the past 3 three years when I bought a 2002 Toyota Tacoma and now my 2005 Prius. The air conditioner in "Ol' Reliable" no longer works and not much heat is put out when the temp is under 32F, but it still has it's utility. BTW, the old truck is only on its 3rd set of tires.

I've just read these past few posts, and I have absolutely no idea what all of you are talking about. Gosh, when my alarm clock today read 333 (my street address), I didn't get that excited! :?

That is the display from a 2001-2003 model. The one with the very strange shift lever.

Only a true Prius-head would call a steering-column-mounted shifter 'very strange'... (Or someone who is used only to modern manual or old auto shifters.)

Heck, the ones I find 'very strange' are the MANUAL shifters that are on the steering column.

Well, actually the lever is on the dash next to the steering column. I must confess I thought it a bit strange at first, but I've definitely grown used to it. It's very easy to grasp with a simple, natural motion to control it.

The 97-03 shift selector is very strange because it points upward and has a button on it. So it is kind of like a graft between a floor shifter (with button) and a column shift, but pointed in the wrong direction. and it isn't really a column shift, but a dash shift because it doesn't intersect with the column, but with the dash. If I had one of that vintage, I would get used to it.

I like column automatics much more than I like floor shift automatics, so the dash mount of the 03 or the dash mount joystick of the current model meets my needs. I've never liked floor consoles anyway.
