Check out greenhybrid.com and go deep into forum history for the Toyotas. Also check out SKeiths? posts. Keep in mind that when out of warranty, you are paying to maintain two motive systems and parts, special equipment as well as expertise are usually expensive since the complexity of the systems far exceed a gaser. A 2010-12 Ford Escape Hybrid not from the rustbelt can also be a good buy and was the most fuel efficient SUV on the planet until recently (kinda). Our new to us 2010 Escape Hybrid gets about 6.5l/100 combined but we got burned on a large repair bill to replace the PCM (I was wondering why the PO traded it in!) See the trials and tribulations of Hippo The Hybrid on greenhybrid.com for more info. That said, older hybrids come cheap due to pending main HV battery replacement risk but a well-maintained unit that has all the right parts replaced before you buy can be an extraordinary value, fuel sipper, techno-gadget and a fun way to help your family achieve a lower carbon footprint. On the other hand, don't spend any money to buy an out-of-warranty one that you can't afford to throw away if a major component fails (engine, eCVT, main HV battery) or if you wouldn't like working on high voltage equipment to save its bacon from the fire.
