Recalls & Defects

VIN JTDKDTB37D1556716 may have been recalled. Check full report for more information

The vehicle may enter a fail-safe/limp-home mode that limits the drivability of the vehicle. The hybrid system could also shut down completely resulting in a vehicle stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Toyota is recalling certain model year 2010 through 2014 Prius vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the Intelligent Power Module (IPM) inside the inverter module (a component of the hybrid system) contains transistors that may become damaged from high operating temperatures. If this occurs, various warning lamps will be illuminated on the instrument panel and the vehicle will have reduced power allowing it to only drive a short distance.

Excellent fuel mileage. The Prius rides and handles like any small firm suspension car, it is NOT a luxury cruiser or sports car. The Prius has a deceptively large interior with excellent cargo space. It does run with the pack on our busy interstates. Slightly noisier than one would expect. There is a learning curve in adapting your driving habits to a Hybrid. Zero mechanical problems or malfunctions so far, (at least prior to the current accident). Interior materials are inferior but tough,could be much better. We have not been able to duplicate the advertised 51 Mpg, but it is only a minor disappointment as I find 48.7 for all my local, city, and Interstate driving quite acceptable. We get occasional trip averages of over 60 mpg (My Ford pickup gets 14mpg at best). Trips of over a thousand miles were comfortable enough, and I am 6'2" tall. The Prius does what it is designed to do, which is to cleanly use the minimum of fuel while getting you safely to your destination. Safety, unfortunately, I can attest to the excellent safety of the Prius in an accident situation, after being rear ended by a speeding pickup truck in a multi - vehicle accident. *** $8500.00 + damage to the rear and front. All sheetmetal, no major systems involved. ruined the hatch.NO encroachment to to the actual interior! Destroyed the front of the Nissan pickup truck back to the engine block. From my experience the Prius is one tough little car! Would I buy another Prius? Absolutely, positively yes!

It is a Prius. Great mileage, nice technology packages on the trim. It won't win any races, and it might "scream" at you when you want it to get up and go - but as a functional daily driver - or even for economical road trips, it does everything right. So, even if elements in their own right only merit a 4/5 review, the car is great overall. On top of everything, we got a great deal and in the color my wife wanted. This is our second Prius - my brother has one, and my folks have had two - no complaints, a lot of praise.

We love it

We had a 2004 Prius before and loved it but traded it in for a new car which we liked not loved. Then we tried 4 other cars which we liked. Always thought about the Prius. We finally came back and we love it and we are keeping it.

Extremely ecologically friendly, great fuel economy (easily 50-60 mpg for mine so far!). It takes a little bit to get used to driving it but once you do, it's like a dream to drive and finding that "sweet spot" where you top out the fuel economy at 100mpg is so rewarding. Lot of room in the back for cargo. I love all the nice extras the Persona has with it. Sporty looking, fun to drive, best car ever!

Hard getting in and out of front door, viewing the screen is very bad in the day time. animals can get into the a/c filter and nest, Very satisfied with the dealer maintenance department, Very unsatisfied with the sales department, other wise the car runs good and gives good service, will not buy another one due to Toyota dealer sales department. I did lease the Prius for 39 months and will never lease again. they set the residual value too high so you can not buy at the end of the lease the car is worth much less.

The acceleration is slow as to be expected, interior noise is a little more than I would like, and there are some minors rattles. Overall, the car performs as expected an delivers an overall averag MPG around 43. I'm not impressed with the Entune/navigation system. The voice controls are hit and miss and the navigation system reboots itself randomly.

I bought this car used in September, 2015 primarily for the gas savings. The car has a sun/moon roof which I like alot. So far I like the car very much and I intend to look at the 2016 Prius due to the extra safety features about which much has already been written even thou the car is not expected to arrive at the dealerships until January, 2016.

We bought a new 2009 Prius (base model) and enjoyed it so much that we bought this 2013 Prius Four. 111,000 miles on the 2009 Prius and almost 12,000 on the 2013. We average 45-47 miles per gallon on the 2009 and 48-50 miles per gallon on the 2013. Great work car and short trips but we also make yearly trips from Tampa, Florida to Houston, Texas and beyond.

My nA/c Buzzes very loud when it is over 85 degrees out side, sounds like a electric transformer on a telegraph pole. I took it in to the dealer and they said your A/C is burning out and needs replaced and they replaced it. Next day same thing I took it back the dealer said that was normal. Yesterday is was not normal today it is normal. Took it to another Toyota dealer they said your A/C unit is burning out and needs replaced and they replaced it. Both times under warranty. Long story but I went into Arbitration and they said just minor repairs very little noise. Well Minor repairs it seems the Arbitrator did not know values 3 A/C units actually equal 41 % of the value of the Prius I don't think the arbitrator was working for me as he should have been. Not satisfied with the dealer at all. turn in at end of lease was not what I was told at the dealer ship and a costly process. They would not let me purchase the car at book value of 14500. they inflated the the buy out price to 21 thousand. Very unsatisfactory people to deal with. the prius was ok but not worth there price I purchased a Nissan Versa Note for half the price only difference is it is not electric and is a great value and car equal and better than the prius. I will never deal with Toyota again.

I bought a 2013 Prius new, largely to drive on country roads with an annual cross-country trip. Vehicle currently has 40,000+ miles on it with zero problems. On the cross county trips I stick to the freeways and it stays above 70 all day long and fully loaded with luggage, average about 48mpg (unless big head wind) as measured by fuel used. Around home I consistently average above 50mpg. Impressive amount of interior space for size of vehicle. Before buying I checked with several taxi drivers who told me they often see Prius cabs with over 300,000 miles on them with no major problems. I'm 6'2" @ 210. Plenty of leg room. Very happy with car and would buy again.

This is the best car I have ever owned. I had a VW Jetta Diesel with 200K on it but it was in the shop for eletrical stuff all the time. So I wanted regular gas car with diesel type mileage PLUS a back seat for the grandkids. The Prius fits the bill. Gas is 75 cents per gallon or more cheaper. I now have 28800 miles in it. On weekend trips I get low 50's mpg at 70mph & higher if I go 60 mph. Overall I have averaged combined MPG of 49.9. When I fill up it's $26. I take a ferry to work & it is nice to sit in a car with the AC or heater on & the engine not running. I carried my Garmin GPS for back up but the Prius GPS works great.

When the salesman first showed me the Prius Four with solar and moon roof, and all sorts of gadgetry, I was overwhelmed by all the fantastic features coupled with the great mpg that the Prius is renowned for and, plus its reliability, which it has proven to be a reliable car. But, and this is a big but....they have failed to address driving ergonomics. While this model four has power seats with lumbar support, I figured out about two months and 3000 miles later on the car that the driving position of the driver is quite awkward and this could not be addressed by changing my seat position. If you are planning to buy a Prius, I suggest you carefully observe your seating and steering first.

I bought a Prius 8 months ago to save fuel but it has been the biggest mistake I ever made. A few months ago my wife hit a truck tire retread on the highway and the right front of the car shattered in pieces never had that happen in 35 years of driving NEVER. It cost $1250 to fix and a month later a small animal ran out in front of us I think it was a raccoon the critter lived but it caused more front end damage NEVER had that happen. Toyota fixed it for free said it should have happened REALLY?. Now the windshield is cracked; the build quality in this thing is horrendous can't believe Toyota put their name on it. If you are thinking of buying a Prius DON'T.

Remote doesn't work 99% of the time. In 6 weeks of winter, it started my car 3 times. All with me outside, near the car. Dealer gave me an extremely hard time. Went There 4 times before they agreed to take it out and refund my money. They don't have a better remote to choose from and it cost just shy of $600. Worse yet, after I had it installed and complianed ,2 employees told me they knew it wasn't a good starter. Back window has a poor view. Rearview mirrors doesn't dim headlights enough. Can be dangerous.

Recently upgraded from 2010 to 2013. It's the same car with a couple small new features. Everything I liked about 2010 model is still here, as is everything I hated. Overall, Prius is a decent car, but it's only worth the price tag if you will drive it A LOT.

I owned a 2005 Prius for 8 years with no problems ever. It averaged 48-50 mpg most of those years. My new 2013 is a Prius 4 with more bells & whistles, which I thought would lower the mpg, but not so far. I averaged 53 mpg on my 1st tank! I don't care for the center console area, less storage area than earlier models. And they replaced the map size door pockets with cup/bottle size pockets. I almost went with the larger PriusV because of the cosole area. The solar air circulation seems to work pretty good, considering I am in FL! Anyway, it was a little higher priced, but if it works as well as my old one, it'll be worth it not to have any issues!

Don't a Prius if you need the navigation. It just doesn't work. I have had my 3 month old car in twice and Toyota can't get the navigation to work. It crashes, restarts, and one misdirected me. Too bad because the mileage is great and otherwise I am happy with the car. Right now I wish I'd gone with anything but a Toyota. They used to make great cars.

So far we are loving it!

Purchased car last weekend - $27,500 OTD. Last minute decision decided to buy 72 mo/100K extended warranty that included routine maintenance for 48 mo/45K for $1200. Really enjoying the can so far - it's my wife's first "new car" - she;s always gotten my hand me downs. She drives 100 miles RT to work and she's loving it. I'll update as we own it a bit longer. Update - 9/13/16: still really like the car. However, gas prices are 30% less than they were when we purchased the car. So the economics of the car probably don't pencil anymore. But the car is still solid and my wife is happy with her small gas bills. Capital purchase probably is off the mark.

I purchased the prius persona in july and love this car, I previously had a Honda accord. I recommend the black cherry color, as this is a limited edition color, so there aren't a lot of them out there. this car is loaded with features, and at only 26000 with o percent financing, this was just right for me. I am getting 56 mpg going to work everyday, 24 miles, 17 of them on the highway. I am currently getting about 52 on the highway and about 56 or 57 in the city, I live in Chicago, so the city driving is stop and go, which gets you better mileage, and I have learned how to drive to get maximum fuel economy without being "that guy driving like a grandma". would recommend

TRADED IN CMAX AFTER 10 MONTHS FOR THIS PRIUS

I had decided to buy the Ford Cmax over the Prius without having tried the Prius. I did so because I bought into the hype and I really did like the way the Cmax drove. I also wanted to do the buy American thing. After 10 months and nearly 15K miles, never going over 37mpg, dealing with the many build quality issues (lots of them) I stumbled upon the NHTSA recall for the safety crash thing and said it was the last straw. So I traded in the Cmax for the Prius. And I haven't looked back. The first 3 fill ups were 49, 47, and 45. Already I got the MPG that the CMAX could not. So it wasn't just me. The Prius works great, is comfortable, and is an amazing build quality! UPDATE: We traded in the Prius after 2 years, because of two big reasons. The most important was that the handling at highway speeds of over 55 mph, was not very good, the Prius floated around alot. The second reason was that it seemed being so low to the ground, and all cars seemed like they were going to crash through the rear window/hatch. It was very overwhelming. I'm glad to say that I've gotten a Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, which gives good MPG, but also AWD, and sits higher than the Prius. In fact, I've gotten 37 mpg on highway trips, and up to 33 mpg in the city. With the Prius, I seemed to average 37 mpg, and could get as high as 58 mpg on highway trips over 55 mph or less. I wanted to keep the Prius, I loved the MPG, the reliability, and overall the car was mostly comfortable once inside. But getting in and out was rough, and handling at over 55 mph was so bad, I felt no longer worth fighting the car on these long highway drives. Oh, in the snow, the Prius had amazing traction - really amazing. No slipping and sliding, very impressed.

Just bought another one!!!!

I purchased my first Prius in 2010 and have recently traded it in on a new 2013 Prius. This car is actually fun to drive and comfortable. my wife and I took 2 extended vacations to the mid-west traveling a total of over 15,000 miles. A lot of people refer to the Prius as a compact car. I assure you that this car is a midsize. I have nothing but praise for the auto. A 5 star rating should be a 6 or 7. We see the hybrids out there have really not caught on, Why, because on the charging of the hybrid has to be done with an additional exterior 240 volt power receptacle. The difference between the charging receptacle needed is that the Pruis uses kenetick energy to charge itself, no plugging in.

I have been researching the Prius for 12 months before buying and during my research I read negative things about the Prius that I find not to be true. This car is not slow and has no problem keeping up with the pack. You don't have to drive like "grandma" to get good mpg's just go easy on the gas pedal and try to stay in eco mode. The car is very quiet and comfortable for long drives and is by no means a compact sedan but a mid-size vehicle. With that said the Prius might not be for everyone but if you have a long commute and like saving on gas with a nice car to boot..... go for it!

I've now driven this Prius 4000+ miles in two months. It gives better gas mileage than the other five Priuses I've owned! And is as comfortable for long drives as any car I ever owned. My first Prius was the 2003 model, and I've driven all of them 100,000+ miles, around home and on long trips. Perhaps I'm small enough to be comfortable, but I really cannot understand the complaints about the seats for long trips. All Priuses have been excellent for driving in mountains, but the 2013 model is the best. No other car I ever owned climbed interstate grades easier in cruise control, and because of the transmission, no car descends steep grades better!

I did a lot of research before deciding on a Prius, and found that, though there are plenty of raving fans, there are also a lot of detractors. I read reviews about unbearable seats, terrible road noise, lack of power, and poor driving experience. After test drives, I decided to take a chance, and bought a new Persona model, which is basically an appearance package with a few upgrades, like the 17" wheels, navigation, and leather. I've driven it enough now to comment: the driver seat is as comfortable as any I've ever seen. The ride and road noise are typical for any vehicle of similar class. The power is great in Power Mode, the sound system is great, and the overall sense is great!
