That is hard to say. If you are buying cars with 140,000 miles on them the biggest factors will be how well they were maintained.

Both of these are good cars but like FOR said, it is how they were taken care of. See if you can get maintenance records. I am a Toyota fan as these are very durable and from my mechanical experience, last longer than similarly maintained vehicles. I also personally had a Honda Civic that was still on the road as a daily driver for 22 years.

A lot of cars with a 100,000 on them are ready for the junk yard due to neglect and abuse. If you buy a high mile car, buy it cheap and have it inspected before buying. Don't buy a high mile car if you drive 25,000 miles a year or you may be looking for another car next year. Do the math and buy a car that will last you until it is paid off.

They are probably pretty equal, except for the expensive hybrid battery on the Prius when it needs replacing. Unless it already has been replaced, check that out.

I have read that Toyota has never had to replace a Prius battery. How true is this?

Battery has a long life, but expensive to replace ($3600+ $6300+ plus labor up to 9hrs) depending on Toyota model. (http://www.greencarreports.com/news/1078138_toyota-hybrid-battery-replacement-cost-guide) Probably wiser to apply as down payment on new Toyota.
