What are some common problems with the Toyota Prius?
I moved from a rural area to the city, so I want to get a Prius to save on fuel and get around town. I’m pretty certain that they’re reliable, but I’m going to get a used one so I just want to make sure. Does the Toyota Prius have any common problems?
Answer provided by
- Excessive oil consumption in some models, specifically the 2011 Prius
- Cracks in the windshield can expand rapidly, so if you notice a chip, get it fixed as soon as possible
- Engine problems, such as blown gaskets, overheating, engine stalling, and other issues when the car reaches around 150,000 miles
