I`m looking to buy a second hand car in Granada and the Toyota Prius has caught my eye.

I am willing to spend between 5k - 6k . If I go for a high mileage one is it wise ? Are they that reliable ? Are parts easy to get ? and could I take it to e.g - Norauto , or any independent for servicing i.e. changing transmission oil, axle oil , pollen filters etc . ?

I am looking at good fuel economy and space.

I encourage any thoughts on whether the Prius would be a good choice and where to buy as not to get ripped off.
