Here’s a recent Scotty Kilmer YouTube channel episode where in typical Scotty fashion, Scotty teaches the opposite of what his episode title claims. In this case it was a Scotty “Why Hybrids Suck” episode title where Scotty showcases a Toyota Prius with 224,000 miles on it.
In the video, you will quickly realize that this is not about a Hybrid that sucks, but rather a Hybrid that Scotty points out has more good to say about it than what sucks about it.
The Value of This Scotty Kilmer Video
The value of this video is that Scotty goes over the common practical concerns car shoppers would have over whether or not to buy a Prius. Concerns such as:
• Hybrid battery life.
• True mileage---especially after nearly a quarter of a million miles.
• Does this vehicle have the highway traffic passing oomph you need in a small car?
• What repairs to expect.
• Whom should you trust to do those repairs.
• How repair costs compare to an ICE model of the same make.
• Should you buy one of these models used with high mileage on it?

That said, kick back and prepare yourself for 12 minutes of Scotty as he addresses Hybrid shopper concerns and why the Prius is the one to buy today---new or used. And it you are not convinced by what Scotty says, be sure to check out the Prius owner's comments following his video.
