Hi! This is my first post here, so the inevitable :welcome: from a moderator is appreciated. Anyway, I am nearing my 16th birthday, and fully intend to purchase a car, as I need to drive reasonably long distances while hauling equipment for work (I do IT consulting around St. Cloud in Stearns County, MN) and I don't want to have to deal with the mid-80s rustbucket of a pickup that my father is letting me use. I really like the fuel economy and reasonable price-of-entry (about $6000 in my area for one in very good condition) of the Classic Prius, but I have seen reliability statistics that concern me. This would be quite a sizable investment for me, and I want to know that it would still be running 7-10 years on. What are your opinions on this?
