Congrats!  Enjoy.  Study the relevant parts of the owner's manual.

However, do not allow more than 3.5 US quarts of oil to be added during
oil changes.  Three quarts exactly is most convenient and works just
fine.  (The owner's manual is misleading on this point and the shop
manual is unfortunately just wrong about it.)

Thanks, Richard for the info. Will watch this and the tire pressure
values and hope they don't go bananas  with the parking brake - damn
grease monkeys!

You may want to consider a used Prius, past the 3/36000 mile warrantee.
You can find them, from a dealer via Ebay, for reasonable prices. That
is what I went with when our '91 Camry was taken after an accident:


NOTE: I am comfortable with self-maintenance.
