Tideland Pearl was my favorite Color! Depending on the lighting it sometimes looked Gray, sometimes Silver.

The clear coat on my spoiler is having the same issue. In addition, it looks like your solar panel is having the same issue as mine and that the plastic is starting to yellow pretty severely due to UV exposure.

Toyota's been offering green Priuses for a long time.

Looks like gen 1 (well, gen 1 that we got in the US: NHW11) had at least one green. http://john1701a.com/ under photo album 8 shows a dark green.

It was a choice when I put myself on the wait list for an 06 in late 05. The salesman pointed me to a Sienna in that color saying it'd be the same as that, since they had 0 Priuses on the lot back then (just like most dealers). That green was not dark. (Gen 2 was 04 to 09 model year.) I opted against it as it might be hard to sell a car in that color, in the future.

I helped a friend of mine shop for a new '15 Prius and she wanted green. I don't recall if it was the same shade as on gen 2. (Gen 3 covered 2010 to 2015 model year.)

My housemate drives a PIP that is "stealth green." It doesn't even say "green" in the color name! I believe it's "Sea Mist Pearl" or something like that, but it's "blue-green." Not a terrible color for that car, actually.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

Going on 7 years in September, currently with 72K miles. No Paint problems with my garaged car here in Seattle and really no other problems at all. I do wish I had the heated seats and steering wheel, but I love the cream interior rather than black. The huge depreciation is the biggest disappointment, but as an early adopter, I knew that was a risk. I'm down 2 bars now which makes round trips to the airport (50 miles) a little dicey, especially if heat is needed.
Debating whether to consider a battery replacement or a newer car (Leaf, Bolt, Tesla 3) at some point, but driving this car is still awesome!

We still own LEAF we purchased in Jan 2011. I change the cabin filter once a year and have the tires rotated every 7500 miles. Replaced the OE tires at 26K and the 12v battery at 30K and that's it on maintenance. I remember back in 2011 there was a thread on how thin the paint was. So I washed our LEAF once a week and each time applied 10 coats of Liquid Glass, I did this for several weeks. Now I only do it once or twice a year. No fading to report at this point.

I passed my 6 year anniversary on May 3rd. I have about 71k miles and am down 5 bars. I plan to contact Nissan this week to see how much I can get them to pitch in on a new battery. The current range is extremely limiting in the use of the car, but I still drive it every time the math works.

We have a 2011 owner with 65,000 miles who is only down one bar so far. Must be the foggy mornings!
