You can now "build your own" 2009 at www.toyota.com.

Are there any differences between the 2008 and 2009 models?  If so, what?

I'm coming from a 2005.  Don't see much difference beyond factory leather,
the audio AUX jack, the rear view camera, and an extra two grand.  Some
different color choices.

Sounds like no changes from the 2006 model.

When I bought my '04 in mid-Oct '03, I was sure this
would be a rapidly evolving system as Toyota adapted to
feedback from the market.

In fact, according to a friend at a local Toyota
dealership, the part numbers for 99.9% of the car are
the same 2004-2009. This makes the '04 Prius the most
enduring design in modern automobile history.

I have never owned a car this long and would love a
reason to get a new one, but this '04 (garaged at home
and office) looks and functions exactly as it did when I
bought it. And after five years and 50k miles, it can be
sold for 75% of the price I paid... astonishing!

When my HOV stickers have run out (Jan '11?), and
there's a plug-in Prius available, I'll make a change.
