No oil burning ever detected. Keep in mind I have my shop add all 5 quarts instead of just 4.8.

There are at least 2 places here in Houston that do this, but I don't think they work on your battery, just take it and replace it. I'm going to keep these guys in mind when the time comes.

You should never get a hybrid battery repaired at a dealer, because they don't repair them, they replace them. With a new one. For a lot of money.

There are many shops that only deal with this. ...

Great job posting all of this with all the pictures!

I want to suggest that you use top tier gas only, as it may not leave carbon deposits in anywhere near the same levels you're seeing. I...

Normally I'd also be up for a UX hybrid, but considering what I do, I'd probably look at a Crosstrek or Forester, and also the upcoming hybrid version that will use the Prius Prime hybrid system.

If the clacking noise you're talking about is something that sounds like a diesel, then it probably is a valve issue. I had that sound long before the shakes...

I did the top-off thing for a week as a test, I don't remember what happened honestly, it was back when the car was new and I was testing range. Otherwise, I always wait for a click as well.
