    .... gas cars tend to have a 100,000 mile warranty on the drive train. So if we assume we'll be replacing the batteries based on the warranty, we also have to assume we'll replace the engine/transmission. Try pricing an engine for a BMW.

    We heard all these alarming numbers about the Prius too, when it came out. The batteries are lasting longer than expected, and replacements are now a fraction of the originally quoted price.
