Every Toyota Prius owner has questions regarding their car. There are many different places that an owner can go for help. I have been digging for the best places to send people. Specifically, people that are looking for answers for help with their Prius.

Here is my compilation of websites or chat groups that have great content.

Help Forum: Prius Chat
Prius chat is an online website forum that has been around for quite some time. The members are well seasoned, and the knowledge base is quite robust. This older forum style chat group usually has many answers to all sorts of hybrid-related questions with known repairs and fixes.

Facebook Toyota Prius Owners Group
Prius Owners is a group that is growing exponentially. In fact, there are many offshoots of this group that have started due to the group growing.

Toyota Prius Owners Group On Facebook

Prius owners group has a great base of knowledge with a ton of DIY people on there willing to help and also lend their opinion. People in this group, I have noticed, have a genuine willingness to help. Be aware when joining this group that you will get asked questions to qualify you to be part of it.

The group wants to foster a peaceful community where everyone plays nice and can get the help they need. I have seen questions answered that have saved people loads of money and time just from collective intelligence found here. The group is a great resource to use, and it is free as well.

Prius Podcast, My Personal Favorite
This one I am excited about for a couple of reasons. First, its a podcast just about Toyota Prius. That tells me that the person running it, more than likely really believes in the car. Second, I was a guest speaker on the show today and was able to share some of my knowledge.

Prius Podcast

Prius Podcast can is easily found by doing a quick Google search. I recently found all the uploads to Spotify, and of course, they are 100 percent free to listen. Prius Podcast is pretty new as of 2019, but I will say that there are some great topics on there to learn on.

My recording is not live yet but should be after editing within the next day or so.

I listed these resources as places that I would feel comfortable using. Be aware there are many places other than what I have listed. These are ones that I have checked out and feel that the content is okay for most Prius owners.

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend and a wonderful holiday season. See you in the next story where we discuss the 2020 Prius L Eco and the 2020 Honda Insight.
