I don't think the Prius breaks down a lot. In SF there is a large number of them,, with many of them taxis. These taxis can be serviced at LG for a reasonable cost and quickly. I drove a 2002 Prius for 13 years with minor issues - replaced with the Volt. If I lived in SF and had a Priius, I would take it to Luscious Garage for service.looks like the prius breaks alot.
