Are they expensive to fix?

The problem is that the batteries on average are about 2-4k to fix, and you have to replace them after about 150k miles give or take 50k. Generally you will get a warranty for up to 100k miles on the battery and quite a few years.
They're several grand more spendy to begin with, but you get tax credits on them at least here in the U.S. The thing is, yeah they get better gas mileage, but not THAT much better, unless its a brand new one maybe. My old civic got over 40mpg (allegedly), and the civic hybrid that year got like, 3mpg better. Depends on what you get I guess.

I have a 2012 Ford fusion hybrid. I've never had a problem.
A friend told me that when I have a battery issue, it will surpass the value of the car. Fml
