    Hi. I’m Michael. I’m new to Priuschat. I have a quick question.

    Would you rather buy a 2013 Prius four with 98k mile for $9000, or...a 2015 Prius three with 121k miles for $8900?

    assuming both batteries are in okay condition.

    thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Michael

    Thank you for the replies.

    Last question...do you think that’s a good price?

    I would choose the four because of the extra features over the three and I like the idea of starting out with fewer miles.

    without either vehicle maintenance history, I would invest time looking else where.
