So, I drive a lot - minimum of 500mi a week, often twice that. Mostly highway driving. I need a good bit of cargo space - a Versa hatchback (what I've been renting on the regular) is barely adequate but more space would be fantastic. My budget is limited - I don't want to spend more than $15k, and I'd prefer to spend less, in anticipation of repair costs on a used hybrid vehicle. My current leader is a 2012 Prius v with ATP. Looks like I can get one with 75k miles for about $13k out the door, which suits my budget perfectly. Maintenance records are nearly perfect, one owner, no accidents, good shape... Planning on taking it to my mechanic this week for an inspection. The DRCC is a selling point for me, but I've never had it so I suppose I wouldn't miss it too much. Fully loaded otherwise is a perk but not of much value to me. I've never purchased a used vehicle that wasn't practically disposable, so I'm nervous about spending this much. I also keep looking at a 2008 touring with similar options for $8k out the door, but am leaning towards paying the $5k more for the extra capacity, DRCC, and a four year newer vehicle. I'm operating on the assumption that I'd quickly be installing a 'new' battery in the 2008. I do think the standard prius is much prettier than the wagon, but I buy vehicles for functionality, not looks. Anyway, I'm just feeling a little overwhelmed and a bit nervous - any impressions or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks guys!
