Never buy one
"Bought the car used with 62k miles. Loved the car until 118K miles when the dealer told me I needed a new hybrid battery that cost $3200 exclusive of labor which cost $500. At least I thought the new battery would represent the newer technology which I assumed had advanced in the intervening years. To my surprise I was told that the new battery would be the same technology battery that had originally powered my car. Other than that, its been a good car but I'd never buy another for fear the battery would go on me again. "

Little rust building up here and there. Could have been a better paint job done on this model.

For a vehicle that gets great gas mileage, it does well. It had a little trouble starting up when it got down to -10F for a while without a jump start, but other than that great.
