For you consideration: This thread over at Priuschat is quite interesting. There is a Prius owner named ‘2 fas 4 U’ who has taken a Prius and a Prius V over 300,000 miles over the last few years. If anything, it proves that Prii are built like fuel-efficient rocks. There are many interesting stories of Prius V owners and their high-mile babies. Also, check out this thread for the standard Prius stories. People loves the Toyotas, that much is certain.
