Yes, they are more complex systems than just the regular combustion engine.

Yes they are, but the trade off is tremendous. If you buy a quality hybrid from toyota, nissan(yes they do make a hybrid), honda etc, you shouldnt have many problems. I still see a lot of first gen priuses and insights on the road and those came out in 1998
