I'm not aware of that ever being offered as an option, though it might be something they offer in the Japanese market.

Sorry, haven't experienced that on mine, and I've had it 5 years now. But I'm in NC, so maybe our climate is just different. Maybe the previous owner (or the dealer that sold it to you) had applied...

Welcome to our exclusive little club pwmcon11! I have over 70K on my 2010, and really haven't had any issues - just an O2 sensor go bad last year. The HS has had a few recalls though, so ensure...

Just turned 70,000 miles on my 2010 Premium non-Nav. Been through several recalls, so ensure those were done on anything you buy. My only issue so far has been an O2 sensor gone bad around 55k. ...

Not sure if the cars with NAV are different, but on my 2010 HS you can disable the reverse thing by setting the mirror adjuster rocker switch to neutral (not left or right mirror).

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. ...

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...

AJ, great article! Thanks for sharing. So the effect new tires would have on HS mpg would be 1-2 mpg.
