    I was clearing out old papers and found the window sticker for my 2008 Prius Touring purchased in June 2008.

    The sticker price was $30,703

    The sticker price for my 2021 Prius Prime XLE purchased in October 2020 was $31,679.

    I am amazed how much more car I got for the same price considering 12 years of inflation.

    The base price of the 2008 Prius was $23,770 and the Touring Package 6 was $5,925.

    When I bought the car I was on a waitlist and you got whatever the dealer received.

    Talking about prices, I'd check what your Prius is worth today. Mine is worth quite a bit more than when I bought it, it's appreciated in value by 20% from MSRP. These supply chain / chip issues are really hitting hard.
