The Once in a Lifetime Toyota Prius Maintenance You Will Ever Have To Do
The Power & Magic of Owning a Prius
There’s no doubt about why Prius models over the years are a hot ticket item for used car shoppers. Look at any online listing on why you should own a Prius and “fuel efficiency” is almost always at the top of the list.
However, there's much more to it than that: reliability and ease of repair---both of which make the Prius a good economical choice if you are fortunate enough to find one for sale new or used in today’s current market.

So, just how reliable is a Prius; and, how easy is it to do repairs on a Prius?
A good example on both counts is highlighted in two Toyota maintenance-related YouTube channel videos posted (the first, very recently) that illustrates the power of regenerative braking when it comes to brake life as shown in a 2004 Toyota Prius demonstrated by the Toyota Maintenance YouTube channel hosted by the ever-popular “Peter.”
The second video---although a little older---is relevant as a good demonstration of how easy it is to change the front brake pads and rotors of the same model of Prius discussed in the first video.
