Is a Toyota Prius more expensive to maintain?

I've heard great things about the Toyota Prius, but I know nothing about maintenance. What does it cost to maintain a Toyota Prius?

Answer
Toyota Priuses are great cars!
On average, a person pays about $400 a year in maintenance on a Toyota Prius. An average car costs about $1,000 a month to maintain—with fuel and other maintenance—so you can save money on maintenance and at the pump with a Prius.
The costs of all maintenance are entirely back-loaded as a lot of the maintenance will be because of the car’s age. You may want to consider an extended warranty to ensure that you don’t have to pay for it out of pocket.
You may also want to get full coverage car insurance to protect your investment in case of an accident or other unexpected event.
