According to CNN, demand for used hybrids, especially Prius, are hot.

http://www.cnn.com/2006/AUTOS/05/17/used_compacts/

Here's an excerpt:
For example, a 2005 Toyota Prius that, when new, had a sticker price of $21,515 could now sell for $25,970, even with 20,000 miles on the odometer, according to data from Kelley Blue Book. Since Toyota dealers usually charge a few thousand dollars over sticker for new Priuses, the buyer in this example probably wouldn't have made a profit, but nearly so.

Don't I wish. I brought a copy of this to my dealers yesterday when I brought my 04 in with 12,500 miles on it for it's annual state inspection sticker. He had a good laugh since there is little delay here getting a new Prius and they come with a $2600 tax writeoff. (and sell at MSRP)
He would really like to have my car on the lot, But!
And he thought the the remarks about there being a used car shortage was a gas. They are wondering what they are going to do with all the gas guzzlers being turned in for Scions and Corolla's.
Salvage or Venezuella? Great time to buy a low milage "4-runner" or Avalon
