Default 2012 Prius

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum and want to check if it's still worth to buy a 2012 used Prius. I plan to use as commuter car and will drive about 50 miles per day. The car has 1 owner with clean car-fax records and it has about 70k on the odometer and selling around 10k.

I'm checking base on your experience to see if it's a good buy at this point.

Thank you.

Best.

Given the general owner reports, it should be good for a few years yet.
But you need to know that the hybrid battery does NOT have an unlimited life and will need attention at some point.
What that means is that it will probably not be free from major repairs for another 10 years or 100K miles.

As for the price, check KBB, NADA and Edmunds.......armed not just with the year but the model and trim level too.
