Hello from a newbie recently floored by the awesomeness of the Pruis! I just found a 2006 with 143K miles for $7k at a dealership. I want it to last 5 years at least. I drive about 16k mi a year. Carfax shows it had a minor accident in the rear. Looks fine in pictures. Not a lot of maintenance recorded on Carfax, so I have no idea how the transaxle fluid has been dealt with, or any major upkeep. Safe to assume, not much was done. I really, really, want to like the Prius, but I'm unable to afford a new one. The Prius, from what I've been reading here, gets just as much praise as it does flack after 100k. Other cars like an Accord or Camry could be bought at a higher mileage (100 to 150k) with less reliability issues. In short, is this a car to avoid? If I'm unwilling to spend $10k, should I not buy a Prius? Thanks in advance!
