Thanks for the welcome. I got my Prius about a month ago, but have been following the groups for about a year. Like you, I waited for the '02s before ordering. Mine just took a little longer to get here. Good luck with the new site.
I too am glad to see the birth of this new board. The Yahoo site was long overdue for replacement. As Bob has mentioned, the excessive advertisements on this forum make it a pain to use. I hope this board becomes the defacto Prius site.
My Prius was ordered the day after 2002 orders were allowed, and received it in October. It now has a 4,500 miles on it--all of it during what has become a very mild winter in central Indiana. I have never driven it in snow!
Happy to add my thanks to that of others for this site and your welcome to it. Lot of work on your part to bring it to life and make it grow. It is appreciated.
My Prius is coming up on its first birthday and 15,000 miles on the 9th of March. Aside from Potenza tire problems which 42/40 and alignment seem to have lessened somewhat, I have had no problems at all. Just enjoyment of technology that has waited way too long to be brought together.
Lifetime mileage at 44 under a somewhat heavy foot.

I worked as a Foreign Auto Mechanic at several independent shops for over 10 years, mostly in the 70's. Then took a step sideways to work as a refrigeration mechanic / commercial HVAC mechanic. Recently retired.
I remember seeing the first Toyotas to arrive at Midwestern dealers.
Hello all. I was wondering will a battery from a 2005 work in a 2008? I totaled my 05 and I found a 2008 with a bad battery for 1k.
My battery is good.
