It's obvious you think Toyota can do no wrong. The battery of the Prius is waranteed for 100,000 miles. That's not very many miles, but you tell the people, don't worry because it's Toyota. Nobody knows how those batteries will hold up after 8 years. If your willing to gamble $5000.00 go ahead and buy one. Too bad this article can not praise the American cars a bit more!

Relax Joe,
On my 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid, the components such as the High Voltage Battery, Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission, and DC/DC converter will have warranty coverage of 8 years/ 100,000 miles.

Still, The more I find out about the shenanigans played by all the major auto manufacturers (Toyota included)the more likely I'll go Chinese with the SX200 from Miles Automotive Group or if I get a raise at work, the vehicles from Phoenix Motors (USA).

The more you love your country and its companies the less you'll accept the bad stuff they do to save a buck. Demand better.
