Happy birthday to my car

My car's "birthday" is mentally on the President's Day holiday. In actuality, Zippy Roger's purchaseday is tomorrow, when he turns four years old. I had 111004 miles on it this morning when I pulled into the parking lot at work. So far, I've replaced the tires twice (no flats, though), and had one steering rod recall. Beyond the many mouse-nested cabin air filters and other miscellaneous replacements for wear and tear, that's been about it for Prius business. I still haven't had to replace the brakes yet.

Also, it's been a pretty conservative winter this year, so we haven't had much excitement either. Zippy Roger's traction control hasn't tried to kill me but once or twice this year. Yeah, it's an evil, evil thing, and I promise you that I would happily put the designer in a Prius stuck on an icy hill and let him/her deal with the resultant mess.
