Toyota Prius FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota Prius here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Toyota Prius rust problems
Rust wasn't a particular issue with the Prius any more than it is on any other Toyota. I would show it to your dealer and have Toyota inspect it with a view to repairing it.
Hybrid or diesel?
Both will give you good fuel savings in the sort of driving you're doing. The hybrid would likely be better in stop-start driving, the diesel better for open-road motoring. The diesel would be cheaper to buy and have a better resale value in the medium term. People are still sceptical about the life of the batteries in the hybrid -- though there is no evidence to suggest they are a problem -- but it has a negative effect on used values. You would also be tied to a Toyota dealer for servicing. The broader trade has yet to develop the expertise to look after the complex electrics of the hybrid.
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.
