How would you know how long they are going to last?

When the Prius originally came out all people could talk about was how expensive the batteries were and how outrageously problematic costly the vehicles would be to maintain a few years down the road.

Today there are a boatload of original Prius' still on the road with over 300k on their odometers still running like tops just in the taxi industry alone.

My mid 2000's 4Runner required ZERO repairs other than brake pad replacements and two gas caps over the first 8+ years and 168k. Still running on the original plugs to this day. If that's your definition of junk I would love to know who you think makes better cars.

Iíve been inside a 2018 (same gen) and wasnít impressed with the interior, the infotainment is inferior to Hondaís and it also feels cramped inside

I've been in both the '18 Accord and '18 Camry and I have to say I like the Accord better as well, although I do think the '18 Camry is a high quality vehicle.

The seats in the Accord are ugly with those weird shaped headrests. I donít like that tablet thing on the dash either.

I'm not impressed with any '18 models (European here).
Gimme the '08 to '13 model years any day!

I am not horrified by cars of 10 years ago, they weren't that different, but I think new cars get significantly better on a practical level with every generation (about every 5 years) that comes out. And while I appreciate form, to me it's still function over form.
