We have a Prius as well -- I was surprised how good the Prius was in snow with the 17" all season tires. Not much snow last years - so can't comment. I would expect similar...

The MXM4 is a firm tire -- that could be part of it ... I can't see how you would have strut problems at 40k.

Remember -- it's not really a transmission .. in a typical sense. They call it a CTV .. but it's not really that either.

That said -- I did both of my Prius at 100k. The fluid had discolored...

I was making two points:

1. It's a Prius -- It's not a turbo 911. And even a turbo 911 is fine with the recommend oil. People think they need to get some "special oil" .. it;s especially not true...

Always keep in mind that oil recommendations are predicated on the submission to the EPA -- manufacturers want the best MPG posted on the window sticker. They can't test and certify with one oil...

Actually ... the Prius was very expensive to engineer and produce. Toyota lost money on every car .. and did so for years.

That's interesting. With all the development costs that went into the Prius -- I wonder why Toyota did not use more of the Prius developing the CT.

Seems like a lot of money spend on what is a...

CT platform -- Prius

It was my understanding that the CT used the same basic underpinnings as the Corolla -- and the Prius.

Knowing that they can do a lot with a basic floor -- they say it's also used in the RAV4!

It's not something I would worry about. I'm sure a local yard would have one for almost nothing. Not that it happens very often ... but they make adding oil difficult without a funnel.
