Is buying a 2nd gen prius (2008) a good idea at this time?? or should i consider a axio 2007 which is almost same in price? i am concerned about the cost on maintenance and all. Thank you in advance. :)

I think the Prius looks out of date compared to the Axio of same age. But you should focus on the battery condition,rather than which one looks better. Personally I would stay away from both,because manufacturers recommended lifetime of battery is less than 10years,operating in less harsh climate on Japan compared to ours. No non hybrid cars available,why you insist on 10 year old hybrid? If you are willing to invest additional 5-8laks on a battery,then Axio it is.

He is referring to the axio 141 I believe which should be close to the price of a second gen prius. There is no hybrid varient.

Look for an Axio with manual transmission, those are bargains these days.

Found a manual geared axio in year 2011 for 4.2 million. It's worthy for that price right??
