    I have 2.. a 2005 Ford Focus I bought with a bad transmission for 200 bucks. I bought the replacement transmission for 50 dollars at the u-pull-it yard and installed it myself. Has 125K on it.
    In the waiting for approval box I have a 2004 Grand Caravan with all the toys I bought as a non-runner for 300. A 35 dollar used computer got it back on its feet with only 102K on it. (gonna try out XL before I sell um both and do something more productive with my time) but it seems to be held up because of it's history report. It has a clear title but there is a total out listed on the history report they pulled on it. If they fail it, I'll probably pull the plug early.

    Just wait till the radiator starts to leak.. big $$$ or having to replace the brakes every 12-15k because they are too small for the van. And speaking of too small.... That transmission..... yea, its not near big enough to pull that big ol van around... It will be shot before 80k if you keep Ubering in it. Sorry, have seen too many of these in my shop with these issues to give them any kind of compliment.

    And to be fair... my mobile office is a '13 Ford Edge SEL. Best MPG Ubering in it was 27.5mpg. I actually get a lot of compliments on the rear leg room.

    2007 Hyundai Santa Fe (mid-size SUV).

    At one point it was the lowest-cost vehicle to insure in the US! It cost $228 to insure it for the current six-month period, and my agent has confirmed that my rates will not go up as long as I use the vehicle for about 50% or less business purposes, including Uber.

    I will tell you the next 100k of your Prius: I got mine at 76k. Previous owner used it clean, nothing needed repair. I put 100k miles and I am now at 176k+ miles with just a bearing replacement and coolant valve repair that totaled just $800.00! You will probably get no mechanical issues or very few if any. By the way, still factory original brakes! It is by far the least demanding car I ever owned and I owned Camry, Avalon, rx300!

    Since my last post in this thread, I mentioned that I sold my 2006 Acura TSX with 105k miles that used premium gas for $11k & picked up a 2012 Honda Insight hybrid with 45k miles for the same price. Well I just sold that car over the weekend after driving it for a few months, & picked up a 2008 Nissan Versa with the CVT transmission for about $5k. Now I'm gonna drive the crap out of this car & not worry about depreciation

    How much is LPG over there in Australia? We got a station out here it's 79 cents but in Orange County there gouging people around $3. I am driving a 2009 Honda Civic GX that runs on CNG compressed natural gas. Locally I pay $1 a gallon But in orange and LA counties its anywhere from $2 to $2.75. I average about 30 mpg but can get close to 40 on the highway. IMG_20150804_184647.jpg

    79cents a gallon for LPG!! Wow we pay between 60-70cents per litre. 3.8 litres to a Gallon brings it up to $2.80 per gallon for LPG. Heaps better than $5.30 per Gallon gasoline goes for here

    CNG started to roll out about 25yrs ago at half the price of LPG (Australia has huge reserves of Natural Gas), but it never took off and distribution is patchy

    Not to be negative but, Prius' are the ugliest cars you can get in a hybrid. They almost look like rolling spaceships. I have a 2012 Dodge Avenger SE. Much more sporty than a Prius in my opinion

    I know I'm going to hell for this but I can't resist since you mentioned spaceships...
