So far, I’ve yet to have been inspected by either platform, period. They both do a self inspection and WV has an annual safety inspection, I assume that’s why they haven’t looked over my car...

I’m currently looking mostly at the GM Epsilon platform (Chevy Malibu or Saturn Aura), and late G2/early G3 Prii, for some reason still considering a Mazda5/6MT (built on same platform as 3 so should be similar to maintain), and recently reconsidering another Nissan Altima (just would have to be manual and not CVT)...

I’m a little nervous of the traction battery in a Prius, as it turns the car into an expensive yard ornament if/when it fails... would it be better to seek a lower mileage car or higher mileage? Thought is that high miles=more frequent use and better battery health...
