Hi there. I'm looking from some direction for you pros. I'm really interested in buying a CT200h. They are quite hard to come by where I live in BC, Canada. My friend is selling his 2012, 130K (leather with no nav/camera) for 13000 CDN. The car is in good condition. Was hit when parked by a bus but apparently all cosmetic and has been repaired.
I'm wondering your thoughts on this year and KMs. My main worry is that I'm going to buy it and all of a sudden have to put a bunch of money into it in the next couple of years (potentially replacing battery etc).
Any thoughts would be appreciated,
Thanks.

Very possible, also not. Depends on how it's been maintained. Battery not a likely issue. I've got an '11 and so far all I've done is rear wheel bearings and brakes all round, I suspect the head gasket and EGR have been replaced on my car.

Used cars, it really depends on how it was being maintained/ driven.

The depreciation within the first five years probably ate up much of the difference between the original sticker prices. I think the Prius has more interior room and luggage space.

Hi - I'm from NSW Australia and just bought a 2011 model a few weeks ago, and a friend of mine
just bought a 2013 Prius. My thoughts are that the the Prius has more internal internal room with
the same mechanical s, but the Lexus is better looking, handles better, has nicer seats and interior,
but above all, is a LEXUS - Toyota's premier brand with the highest build quality of pretty well any car.
I have had several Lexus models over the years and they are fantastic cars.

Hi
Take it to Lexus dealer
And ask them to check battery life.
And engine.
If all ok, you will have a perfect car for
Couple of years.
But if the battery is 50percent or less
You have to negotiate for lower price.
Or to give up.
Good luck.

I own both cars.
Both are very good.
All depends on your preferences.?!

Make sure you see it start for the first time in the morning. If the car is warm when you go or the seller won't let you see it in the morning for the cold start, WALK AWAY
