I was on the forums about 2/3 weeks ago about purchasing a used prius which in the end I didn't! Anyway, I'm back again and have found a prius t-spirit on autotrader: 2007 (56 reg) 40,000 Miles Full Dealer SH Cat D - now fully repaired Asking price: Â£5300 Normal price for prius in this range: Â£6500-7500 My only worry obviously is the insurance write off. Not sure if American system is the same as the UK so I've included a description of the write-off categories in the UK Category A - Vehicle must be crushed. Category B - Vehicle may not be returned to road. Parts may be sold. Category C - Repairable. Possibly structural damage. Cost of damage (at main dealer prices and labour rates) is more than book value of vehicle. Category D - Repairable. Probably non-structural damage. May have been economic to repair, but insurer doesn't want to. As far as i'm aware, Cat D write-offs are either very good deals or very big long-term hassle. Does the toyota warranty remain intact? I have called my local dealer but none of the sales advisors knew.
