Pick up a Consumer Reports Vehicles Buyers Guide, they do a good job of picking out sellect years of vehicles that have issues and telling you what the issues are along with repair costs.

You shouldn't have to buy a new Prius battery pack, ever, there are plenty of used packs out there and most large cities have auto repair shops that will refurbish hybrid packs, just like no one goes to the dealer and buys a whole brand new engine, you get a used/rebuilt engine.
