I am sorry you had a bad experience with the Accord hybrid. Toyota hasn't had those same problems, and all the things Toyota WAS blamed for turned out not to be electronic control problems at all. The Prius hybrid batteries, not to be confused with the regular battery in the car, last 10 years or more. It is rare that a Prius owner has to replace the hybrid battery during their period of ownership. The warranty on the hybrid system runs 8 years or 100,000 miles for models before 2010, and in some states, it is 10 years or 150,000 miles. But many Prius have over 200,000 miles off the original battery. If you do replace the battery, there should be a $200 recycling rebate on the new battery. FuskieWho notes the hybrid system doesn't even need any direct maintenance until 100,000 miles...
