Default Hybrid newbie needs help

Hello everyone im in here ebecause im a Hybrid newbie. I would like to purchase a used Honda years 2003-2005 maybe? Is what i have in mind. So im here on this forum with a few general question that im hoping can guid me in the right direction.

Here they are:

What years should I look out for?
Are some years better than others? ( reliability, safety, mpg)

Battery replacement. How much mileage does each battery usually last?
Do I need to get an entire battery replacement or can i have individual battery cells replaced?
How much are the batterys?

Car recalls, What year had alot of recalls?

Im a little scared abou thte 'sticky' gas pedals, which ones ar ethe ones that get stuck?

Thanks in advance/

Assuming this isn't a troll... If you're looking for cheap, reliable transportation, avoid old hybrids altogether. Any small four-banger will get you acceptable economy without the burden of yet another major automotive system that can fail.

Answers in order:

Doesn't matter.
20,000 - 200,000.
No, Yes; however, a truly thorough job can cost as much as a replacement and have lower reliability.
Please don't ask people to Google for you.
To my knowledge, this was never an issue with the Hondas. I believe it was a Toyota issue.

You're welcome.
