As to maintenance costs, the Prius has 150,000/10 year warrenty on all hybrid related systems. At 75 years of age, I wonder if I will still be able to drive 10 years from now, or if I will still be around. Also, there is the need to factor in Toyota's excellant reliability record vs VW's less than excellant record & more limited warrenty. I would prefer a TDI Sportwagon with a 6 speed manual to a Prius but costwise, I think a Prius would cost less over a 10 year period.
