Hi there! I have a 2013 Prius with about 97000 miles. I haven't had to do any maintenance to it, thankfully, but I am wondering if anyone had any advice on anything that I may have to do now that I am approaching the 100,000 mile mark.

Thanks so much everyone!

IF.....you have had it since new, there are several important things that you have missed that might start catching up with you about now.
Complete brake service, including fluid.
Coolant replacement.
Maybe transmission fluid, depending on the model.

If all of your service has been at "fast lube" places, an inspection at a dealer certainly would be in order after 9 years.
Beware, however, that the dealer might give you a list of things a mile long, most of which are not really necessary.

that makes sense...i guess my concern is the battery and if there is anything i need to do in regards to that
If it still has the original 12 V battery, you might as well start shopping for a new one.

As far as the hybrid battery goes, there isn't anything that the average Joe owner really can do.
Except maybe find the cooling inlet in front of the back seat and be sure it is clean.
And there is no routine service for the dealer to do on the battery either.

First brake job comes due around 200k and the 12v battery can be load tested. Why buy a $260 batt if u don't need one?

Change the cvt WS. Do sp plug change, cabin filter, and enging air filter. Cabin filters get neglected. Jiffy lubes are pros at selling u engine filters w false claims doing so improves fuel eco. I'm sure u already changed it....lol

The first "brake job" comes due......when there starts to be signs that the pads are wearing out.
Should be inspected at each tire rotation, a maximum of about 10K miles.

And even a good AGM battery seldom lasts more than about 7 years.
If you have one that is 10 years old, it is on borrowed time.

And at your quoted replacement cost, it has cost you only $26 a YEAR to operate.
Assuming the new one will do the same, $26 a year is cheap insurance against a surprise breakdown.

P.S. It is really not good to use abbreviations in a forum like this.
What is a "cvt WS" ??

Nice mileage. If it helps my first gen2 (05) I took to 95,000 and part ex’d for my 2nd gen2 (07) which I took to 155,000 miles. New spark (iridium) and regular oil changes Would be a good start.
