I am considering a hyprid, particularly Prius. I wanted to know what sort of maintenance costs are associated with a hybrid (or Prius) - as compared to a gasoline equivalent.
- Battery life (when does it have to be changed? Km? years?)
- Schedule maintenance costs (amount, frequency)?
- Other significant costs and when does it come due?
- Any Tips or things I should consider?
- Effect cold weather (upto -10C) has on battery? significant? or immaterial?
I plan on buying it new and probably keeping it for 10 or so years at least, possibly longer (~150k estimated over 10 years).
