I posted on the other thread as well, but to summarize, go ahead and change it if you want, but there's really no rush. The Prius has been sporting a sealed CVT for 14 years now, and has a pristine...

And there's no actual evidence that any of this is needed. Really, where is the evidence of damage if you don't change the oil, as some of these headlines claim? It's all conjecture, based on what...

So after reading some of these forums, all I see are people assuming it needs to be changed because it looked a different color than new. I don't see any evidence of transmission failures due to...

we had this discussion on the forum a few years ago. Apparently the original spec was 5k but they changed it to 10k. The owner manuals got updated but the ECU code didn't. When I took my 2010 in...

No, it's based on the Avensis, a European version of the Camry. And it has the Camry Hybrid's powerplant (a 2.4L engine with bigger electric motor) rather than the 1.8 found in the Prius. It's also...

Cars that require premium are tuned for it, so if you use regular in them, the ECU has to detune the car to prevent knock. But your HS is tuned for regular gas, so adding higher octane does nothing...

Not sure what year your Civic is, but the EPA rating might be as good/better on it than the HS, so that's not surprising. I had a civic in the 90's, and got mid-30's mpg even back then. If you...

I agree with Dave it's so much more about how you drive than anything else. Just driving 10 mph faster than someone else on the highway will make a big difference. Or how gentle/smooth you are...

Power mode - what does it do?

I recall asking this a few years ago here, but has anyone ever gotten the scoop on what Power Mode actually does? The owner's manual is absolutely useless, basically saying "push this button if you...

They came out with a service bulletin back in 2010 that says 10,000 miles. The service light still comes on after 5000 however, and I think the owners manual says 5000 too. When I take my 2010 in...

In my experience, the computer reads about 1.5 mpg high. So if it says 36.2, you might be getting only 34.7 when calculating "actual" (miles driven divided by gas put in on refill). Not sure the...

I do. I drove several months in both modes and found that ECO gets me about 1 mpg better (~35 in normal, 36 in ECO measured by gas used and odometer). So the difference isn't huge at least for me. ...

I've never gotten much cooling in my seats either. I can kind of feel a little breeze when wearing shorts, and maybe a little when my back is wet from sweat, but that's about it. Multiple times...

The AC will drain your battery fast, and the engine will come on to recharge it. Try it sometime - sit parked on a hot day with the car and AC on. I get maybe 5-7 minutes before the battery is gone...

One other thought - the Energy MXV4 has been replaced by the Primacy MXV4, which gets better reviews and has a longer tread life/warranty. so you may notice a difference with the new tire. But they...
