Toyota Prius 2001 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota Prius here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
EXPERIENCE says replacing the battery pack is a rare event. Toyota says the battery lasts the life of the car, and they have sold only two replacements since the Prius was launched in 2001. In that time they've sold 10,000 cars, The two that were sold were for taxis with high mileages in Queensland. The cost is $3940, including fitting.
BUYING from auction leaves you little room to move if something goes wrong. It's a ``buyer beware'' scenario, and unfortunately you didn't show enough caution. The fact that it was a 1999 model -- when Toyota didn't start selling the Prius here until 2001 -- and the price was $10,000 should have tipped you off that something was amiss. Toyota's technical people say the earlier Prius is quite different to the car they sell here, with a different ECU and battery pack. The result is that Toyota dealers don't have the diagnostic equipment to determine what might be wrong with your car. Even though this is a grey import, Toyota is willing to help out if you call their customer hotline.
