Toyota Prius 2008 Q&As

  • Prius slow to accelerate

    The early Prius was a bit dozy from the lights but before you defect you should try the new model, which is more lively.

  • Toyota Prius park brake and spark noise

    We haven't had any reports of the issues you complain about. I would be concerned about the noise from the rear of the car when slowing down, and would get that checked out. As for rolling on a slope after applying the park brake I'm thinking that's happening while the brake sets after you've applied it. That doesn't sound like it's anything to worry about.

  • Plugged in to hybrids

    A HYBRID such as the Toyota Prius recharges the battery as you drive along, so there's no need to plug it in to mains power to recharge it.

  • Life expectancy

    GOOD question. How long is a piece of string? I doubt that a car company would want, or could answer your question. How do you define the life of a car -- does its life end when it finally snuffs out going down the driveway? Perhaps it's when it is worn beyond reasonable fixing? Is it simply when the warranty expires? It's probably none of these, but I'd expect a car to do 250,000km without a major failure of the main components. Many cars will do more, as your Honda Shuttle did, but is it reasonable to expect a car to go forever? I recall in the 1950s it was common to have to rebuild an engine after 60,000km or so. We don't do that now because of improvements in technology.
