Not all Prius batteries last that long. Many fail after about 10 years. And if you don't drive a lot, or only do short trips, the engines can become gummed up with oil residue. We had a Prius PHEV for 7 years, and traded it - with a sick motor - for a 62kwh Leaf lease.
Prius are paragons on reliability and great value if you maintain them well. The only thing I have against them is the ICE

Well LeftieBiker your The Best, Least-Known Tips & Tricks kept me busy reading for hours last night. So many replies! My eyes are now sore from staring at the screen! What a wealth of information, most of which I didn't know and will find very useful. I intend to use the car only in the warm months of the year and the info of how to disable the A/C from running whilst using the blower is just what I needed. I will go for the simple method of bridging with a resistor. That is so easy to reverse when I decide to sell the car. Thanks a million.
