    I'm a super newbie. I recently had to move very very suddenly to take care of a sick family member and now commute over an hour each way 6 days a week and work 9-10 hour days. I WANTED to get a Prius but now I NEED to get one as the car I commute in is terrible on gas. I work at a fast paced job without much time to do research at ALL, so I'm really hoping to get some helpful feedback and make a decision fairly soon. I appreciate your kindness and understanding. Life isn't easy right now.

    I have brought it down to these 2 I'm trying to choose between. Hoping to learn about longevity, reliability, time before needing a new battery, and anything else you can think of for each of these....

    A. The Dark Grey one - 2013 Prius c Two at CarMax. Fewer features, smaller, lower mileage, 30 days guarantee. It's on hold for me right now. miles: 73K
    Price: $9338.00 (after trade in) (also - Carmax has Maxcare which I could get to cover unexpected expenses - Is an extended service plan like MaxCare necessary for a Prius??)
    VIN # JTDKDTB37D1049069

    B. The Green One - 2013 TOYOTA PRIUS V FIVE Leather seats, more bells and whistles, higher miles, no 30 days free return policy: 138K
    Price: $8995 firm (he's had full priced offers but I was first)
    VIN: JTDZN3EU4D3277194
