First 5,000 miles

"...I would walk 500 miles
And i would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 5,000 miles
To fall down at your door"

Maybe not walked 5,000 miles, but turning 5,000 miles in on my 2010 Toyota Prius was something for sure. Still loving the car. I averaged 49.3 miles for my first 5,000 miles! Not bad and almost double what I was getting with my 1994 BMW 318i I replaced. I still feel like I never fill up the car and I have to remember how to do it each time I do... I guess that will happen when you only fill up every 425+ miles!

I decided to get the oil changed, which also included getting the tires rotated. Everything checked out great.

Toyota said you could go 10,000 miles now before getting the oil changed, but I thought it prudent to do it anyway since it would have been in the shop for the other 5,000 mile services (which is really just the tire rotation).

All-in-all, still cruising!
