TOYOTA PRIUS II NHW20 2008 Prius Fuel Tank Capacity

Bought a new 2008 prius in December. Noticed that the fuel tank was only holding about 6 gallons or so. I would let the fuel gauge get down to 2 bars remaining and it would only take 4.5 to 5 gallon on fill up. Went back to dealer a couple times they told me everything was fine. Submitted a complaint to toyota National Customer Service. They phoned me back and said that it is normal for the prius fuel

have the same problem. Is each box or square on the fuel meter suppose to be one gallon or some other number Or just an indicator This morning I filled up first at 8.8 gallons then added up to 8.9 gallons and then 9.0 gallons before I got tired of trying to top off the tank. The dealership also never told me about this issue but it must be going on since at least the 2004 model. It would benefit toyotas

TOYOTA PRIUS I NHW10 2001 Prius electrical problems

Hello prius owners I bought my first prius used and am going to need help diagnosing some electrical problems. The vehicle was running fine then one day the previous owner went to start it and there was nothing. No power at all as if there was no battery at all in it. He did not want to get involved in diagnosing the problems so he sold me the vehicle at a reasonably lower market value. He said he

I had a routine oil change and tire rotation for my 06 prius at a dealership. When I started the car all the Check engine batteries etc. lights came on. The service person got into the car and drove it a few feet. The electrical part shut down. I could smell a brake-fluid-like odor. They have no idea what is wrong. A longtime toyota mechanic suggested that they may have placed the lift plate on the

TOYOTA PRIUS Weight reduction

I got an 07 prius a couple weeks ago and of all the info Ive come across on the net (along with ideas of my own) I reduced the as-delivered weight of the car by 40 lbs. by taking out the rear plastic bin that is above the spare the carpeted deck that lives on top of that a small plastic box lid to the left of this deck a couple of tools that arent needed the owners manual the rear cargo net all of

from the designed oil viscosity. The bearing tolerances and engine design are based on a specific viscosity and there is no gain to be had by varying what the design engineers spent there career getting right. Mobil is concerned with selling their oil. Think of what claims must be said to convince owners to change to Mobil oil and then think of what PROOF they provide that this is true for your prius.

TOYOTA PRIUS Maintenance

Just picked up a New 09 prius and was just curious as when we have to change the anti-freeze. I did not see anything in the book about that. BTW we had to wait 4 months for it as my wife had to have blue. We got if for sticker.

Anti-Freeze is normally tested for strength regularly (twice a year) and can be used for several years as long as it is not diluted with water or contaminated with oil or combustion byproduct. Anti-freeze also contains a lubricant for the water pump and for that reason is usually changed every 2-3 years even if it tests good otherwise. Worth noting is that prius has TWO radiator systems one for the

TOYOTA PRIUS The other Water pump

The toyota prius has two water pumps. One for the gas motor and the other for the electric. They do not tell you about the second one and it is not part of the preventative. They just wait until it goes out and then you are stuck in the middle of no place. Mine went out at 90000 miles. Just a week after I had the other one replaced with the timeing belt. It cost me 500 to get it replaced. All my idiot

So far Ive only changed my oil once. The one thing youll want to get is the electrical diagnostic insurance. If I remember right its 800 - 1000. If something goes wrong with the hybrid system its 100hr to diagnose and fix. It only takes a day in the shop to come out even. Otherwise I dont expect maintenance to be horribly different than my wifes Scion.

TOYOTA RAV 4 Questions on Driving Range and Quality Question

Im looking into possibly purchasing a 2013 rav4 ev but have some doubts as follows 1) is there any way to extend the 100mile driving range to 200 or so will I have to purchase additional batteries other suggestions 2) I heard these cars dont sell well is there a quality problem with them Thank you...Miguel.

TOYOTA RAV 4 I SXA1 Out-of-State service in AZ Round 1

So I took my RAV in for the 5k mile service and firmware upgrade. Said they talked to toyota and they wont allow anyone to do the service wanted me to go to San Diego. I do love San Diego but dont want to drive there today for a minor service. Considering the upgrade hasnt been particularly helpful for people Im not fighting them yet but I told the service advisor about my winning boxing match with

mobility in our local environment. I fully expect our nation™s economy to continue to deteriorate as we go forward because ultimately you cant continue to endlessly over leverage our borrowing without consequences. The rate of decline and the timing are anybodys guess. This car would be a tangible asset regardless of national economics but especially if the economy tanks or even worse. I like toyota

and the transmission may be damaged. Any comments Amy Yes I have a comment. Its true that regenerative braking is not available just like engine compression braking isnt available on an oil burner car when the car is in neutral. Yes thats a fact. There is ABSOLUTELY NO POSSIBLE WAY that this will damage the transmission like it may on an oil burners automatic transmission. This is somebody at toyota

LEXUS CT First Used Oil Analysis

I said that after I got my first UOA from Blackstone Labs I would post it. The analysis was unexciting which is what you really want. But the engine also only has 24000 miles on it with only 5700 miles on this change. So I would expect nothing less. Not sure if Im going to do this with every change. Lexus engines are known for longevity toyota as well. I owned two Corollas that I got over 200000 miles

TOYOTA YARIS low gas mileage

Curious question here. 2007 Polar White HB Yaris with 1274.7 miles on it. After the 1000th mile I tried checking my gas mileage (since by fuel bar was blinking super fast so I had to gas up.) Turns out that only 274.7 miles later I have to gas up again but only gassed up 10.4 gallons. So basically I got 27.4mpg Is that wrong or something All I got done to my car is a Tanabe Concept G Axle Back Exhaust

in color have it replaced. Also consider going to an aftermarket filter with better breathability (i.e. K&N). 3) If you buy cheap off-brand gas stop it. Cheaper fuels are priced so because they use additives and detergents etc. with much lower caloric content than you find in the primary fuel brands and end up costing you more money than primary brands due to lost mileage.

TOYOTA YARIS Yaris Sedan Throttle Failure- Electronic

Hello Yaris World. Im now a dual priusYaris owner and enjoying the experience but my Yaris has hit a major setback mostly mea culpa. I had a real long post but it logged me out when I clicked submit ( Anyway I believe that I reversed the poles when I was jumping my 07 Yaris Sedan. Now I am getting no throttle response from the accelerator pedal. Also the Check Engine ABS and BRAKE lights remain on.

and new tires. Ive learned my lesson though I need to talk to you guys before I let a dealer tech poke around. The situation was tough though because I was managing the dealer from out of town and my fiancee needs the car to get around (home health care). Thanks for the input bronsin and ctscott. It was cool to learn that the throttle on the Yaris uses fly-by-wire throttle. I sure love my prius

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 Why a Timimg Belt Instead of a Chain

Maybe this has been covered but it seems that the timing belt on a 1.8T is a never-ending source of worry. In fact almost every manufacturer now uses timing belts and have done so for a long time. Time was when cars (my Dads old Ford 390 V8 for example) had timing chains. Some people even replace these with gears. I never recall worries about replacing these chains though they werent roller chains.

have to just deal with it. We™re discussing that why a timing belt instead of a chain on our Passat. People are criticizing or supporting VW of using the timing belt. We can always agree to disagree. Originally Posted by Passat2.8 Stop hating on VW because of it and be thankful the cars are not defective in any was that they will flip over and kill us (Lexus GX460) or accelerate into oblivion (toyotaLexus)

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W164 Warranty opinion

I have a 2009 ML320 we bought new. It currently has 40K miles and has been into the dealer quite a few times leaking turbo seals problem with the down pipe 02 sensors rear door hydraulics and I am sure there are a few more too. It will be 2899 to extend the MB warranty 3 years or up to 75K miles. I was hoping for some opinions if extending it is worth it if so is this a good price Thanks

a peak at my cars previous history and found a heater of some sort had been replaced and the COMMAND6-disc system replaced TWICE. Parked next to my 2009 ML320 with 51000 miles is my 2007 prius with 53000. The prius had a defect in the gas tank evaporative system right off the factory floor. Other than gas oil and filters it needed new tires at 40000. An 8 year 100000 mile warranty was 1100 from toyota

TESLA ROADSTER Ford Fusion ENERGI or Model S ...

OK I know I am stirring the pot and poking the bear here.... but. Let me start out by saying that I HAVE A RESERVATION for an S. So easy with the comments. I have been following TESLA since the beginning and am serious about an electric car. The reality is I want one that Looks great has all the techno-gadgets and is electric. I rulled out leaf CMax volt imiev Volt they are all small ugly or limited

The cost to do some of these high tech options is nominal. Even added as an option at additional cost is fine. Value is very subjective clearly. However in that case its pretty clear to me that you should get the Fusion Energi. Its almost perfect for what you want and how youve described using it. - - - Updated - - - Originally Posted by FlasherZ Hybrids - whether Cadillac Escalade Fisker Karma toyota

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 335i vs 335d

Hi all. First posting on this board. Im usually over on the X boards but am thinking of buying a 3er as my daily driver and wanted some feedback. The wife is in the process of stealing the X from me. Ive narrowed the choices down to the 335i and 335d. I currently have the X5d so Im aware of the diesel issues people may have. I have not driven either one of the engines in a car though. Only have had

is lot of marketing that at exhaust d is more greener than i and overall(running standing) d is more greener than prius. And thats because of DPF and DEF systems in d.

KIA SPORTAGE III 2011 driverreliability experiences

I am a honda fan boy (have owned 4 accords and 2 ody vans) and have a had great luck with them. I really like the new Sportage and would like to know from the people that own them what has your experience been so far Any major issues with reliability Is it still fun to drive after a few months Why should or shouldnt I buy one I appreciate your thoughts One more thing. I live in Atlanta and the reviews on Google for most all of the Kia dealerships here are really bad. Makes me wonder why. Thanks

was a bit more finished on the passenger side...looking up under the glove compartment you can see they kind of quit with the fascia as soon as it angled some so you wouldnt see much beyond there vs. closing it all up nicely. But as you can see all those really are tiny nitpicks. When I walk out to the parking lot and see it I still think damn thats a nice looking car. My prior car was a 2005 toyota

LEXUS CT Revving engine whilst parked.

Noticed that if car is in park and you select sport mode you can rev the engine a little bit and the rev counter moves up. Previous autos Ive had didnt allow you to do this. I know you can rev it in neutral but find it strange you can do it in park. Anyone else found this or know why this might be

The prius and CT200h actually are must more similar to a traditional automatic transmission. The main planetary carrier speed is controlled by an electric motor instead of various clutch packs though. Controlling the speed of the motor controls the planet and ring gear speeds and thus the output shaft speed. Ive torn apart both a traditional 6 speed auto and a hybrid CVT. The CVT is impressively simple. It really is brilliant. Im sure the controls are very complex but mechanically it looks like it would have far fewer modes of failure just based on mechanical simplicity. As far as why the engine doesnt rev over 2500 with the car in park you are probably right. The ECU logic says stop wasting gas dummy and limits the revs. Heres a link to more info than anyone probably needs to know regarding toyotas HSD system. toyota prius - Power Split Device

Meanwhile toyota just recalled 750000 pickups while their prius sedans are croaking in the streets with a software problem. At Nissan their 4.5L V8s burn so much oil that they might as well be called diesels. And I laugh at my status conscious neighbors every time their 7 Series BMWs and SL and ML Benzes get dragged down the street on the hook because their electrical systems are bug infested pieces of crap. Yet Californians still buy imports because all domestics are junk. Sheep.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Splain this...

Why when the AC is in auto mode that the fan will not go into max speed when the top is lowered To get max fan speed you have to dial in the fan speed manually. And I dont want any wise-azzed comments about running the AC with the top down either. )

crazy trying to rebalance the AC. Surely running the AC with the roof down will damage the system as it overworks it Will sure burn more fuel anyway. Truely innherb you must have never lived in a hot climate or you wouldnt even ask...[D] Of course it should be designed to handle it. And of course it will impact fuel economy some but I can save even more fuel by never starting it Or getting a toyota
