You drop the "Hybrid". The Prius only comes in one form.

I just bought a 2007 Prius and had the same concerns.   Honestly, I
don't know what to expect.    The only way I could get comfortable
with the purchase was spend another grand on an extended warranty.

One option is with http://priuschat.com/forums.html
Top menu has Prius accessories with sub-category Discounted Extended
Warranty.  It's only been a couple days since the money was authorized
and I'm still waiting for the paperwork.   Seem's legitimate.

Added some stuff, side moldings, clear mats to go over the carpeted
mats, rear mats, cargo net, mudguards,   I'm the worst on directions,
the NAV system had really relaxed my driving somewhat.  I'm happy with
the purchase,  fun to drive and pretty sure you will enjoy.

Extended warranties are insurance, and like all insurance policies they
are priced to make a profit for the seller, not the buyer.  If one can
afford to keep cash on hand to cover repairs it's less expensive to
self-insure than to buy an extended warranty.

As the third year of the model a 2007 Prius should be the most reliable
of what was already a very reliable line.  Drive with confidence.

I like the positive vibes, but I ain't very lucky.   Thought the same
about my 2 yr old Mitsubishi wide screen TV (65713).    They just
ordered a new DM module, part and labor $100.    Warranty was
only good for a year and we didn't get the extended, really sucks.

The Prius is a computer on wheels,   With my luck, $90 probably a
good investment.
