Long story short, my beloved Prius Gen3 got totaled and I'm looking for a Gen4. My policy has long been to never buy a "first year" car, which is why I had originally thought of starting my searches at Year 2017. Having been once royally screwed by an individual seller, I typically prefer to buy a low-ish miles car from a reputable dealer, even though I am very aware of the markups. FWIW I systematically stay away from rentals, commercial use, government cars, cars from faraway states and such, or cars without a free Carfax (on a side note, Cargurus is still awful and Autocheck is nearly useless... even worse than it was 4 years ago which I didn't think was possible. LOL.) Unfortunately all the 2017+ Prii I've been looking at over the last month have been above my budget and contrary to some recent internet lore, the price of used cars has definitely not been "tumbling", at least not in my region. I've read every relevant previous post I could find on the subject (some of them are just outstanding and so incredibly helpful !) Still, I'm not sure if there was any serious issue or red flag reported on that first year Gen4. Did I miss anything? Would YOU consider a 2016?
