    I just paid $4300 for an '07 with 130k, clean title and Carfax. Minor cosmetic issues and needed tires.

    Are you good with DIY repairs? That 2007 is right at the point where some parts will be needed

    Yes, I'm no master mechanic, but I can hold my own.

    '63 VW Doublecab (restored in mid 90's)
    '68 GMC 3/4 ton 4wd (snowplow and woodcutting truck)
    2 x '88 Civic Wagon RT4WD (snow cars)
    '88 CRX (my DD)
    '06 Matrix 4wd (wife's snow car)
    '07 Prius (wife's DD)

    What I save in car payments allows me to pay my mechanic for the stuff I don't want to do.

    The 88 crx, what a nice car. Can't see many of those around anymore. There were tons of them back when the high school/college kids drove them

    HOUSTON, TX: Bought a 2007 Prius, 2G, ,68K miles, Salvage Title in August, 2018. Paid $7,200. I know, what am I doing? ( wife liked no cigarette smell , leather seats , oustrong A/C) SALVAGE= ]]pay x1.5 in monthly insurance premiums. Anyhow, hybrid battery problems made us return it to their mechanic three times in first 5 months. They swapped out individuaI battery cells. I personally replaced the 12volt battery. After the third battery cell swap, the Prius has been steady as daily driver. YMMV
