Need to buy a Prius before Dec 1st, but I need advice
I'm sure this advice has been posted elsewhere, forgive me for not reading through the threads on this forum.
I want to buy a used Prius before Dec 1st - we need it - and I don't know much about Prius, other than it has great mileage and good track record.
- something used, preferably under $10K
- one that doesn't plug in, just takes gas
- bigger is better, but a "regular" Prius that seats 5 and takes a child seat will be fine
- doesn't burn oil or any other common problems
I was just going to go to CarMax or get a Certified PreOwned from Toyota, but I want to know how I can avoid getting one that burns oil or has other common problem that might make it through their screening process (Carmax and CPO dealer cars). I don't mind paying a little bit of a premium over market value, and I'm fine with an older Prius with high mileage, if I can get one less likely to have problems.
