8-year warranty. I understand the 10-year warranty is only in California
(US models). I'm curious to know if the MSRP is higher where they have the
10-year warranty or if the cost is spread across those who have an 8-year

US Prius info:
basic new vehicle warranty: 3 years/36,000 miles
powertrain warranty: 5 years/60,000 miles
hybrid system warranty: 8 years/100,000 miles
If you purchase/register/primarily drive a 2004-current PZEV Prius in a
CA emissions state, the hybrid battery alone is further covered under
the CA emissions warranty for 10 years/150,000 miles. For a 2004 Prius
those states were CA, ME, MA, NY, VT. For a 2005 Prius those states
were CA, CT, ME, MA, NH, NJ, NY, RI, VT. I'm certain that more states
adopted the CA emission guidelines for the 2006 model year, but I do
not have that list.

Okay, back up to 10 years then - I'm in NY.

Also in states that have adopted the California emissions criteria
(mostly New England states and New York State).
The MSRP is the same throughout the country.

So the answer, then, is that I'm paying for part of a two-year warranty I
don't have. Oh well, I'm also making up the difference for someone else's
child tax credit.
