TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Apr 14, 2004.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with TIRES . several months ago i had a blow out on my left rear tire. those things happen- so i replaced the tire, glad that there were no injuries or damage. two weeks ago the same thing happened on the left front. whn i went to the dealer i was advised to keep the tires inflated to 45lbs though the owner's manual (on my 2002 prius) advised inflating to only 35lbs. the dealer said that they found that 45lbs allowed better wear and avoided the blow-outs. owners should be advised of this and given replacement tires with an adjustment for wear. i was outraged that toyota had this information and essentially sat on it. on the 2004 prius (which we also own) the tire is larger and thus the "problem" has been corrected by toyota...except that owners of 2002 prius's are driving around on tire that literally blow up..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 23800 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on July 03, 2004.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STRUCTURE . i noticed road noise and determined that it was a tire noise. since i was traveling out of my home state - i took the car to be checked by a local tire center.he guy looked at the tire and immediately pointed out the uneven wear of the front tires - could feel that the steel belt was almost exposed. i had just made a 1000 mile trip and feel lucky that the tires didn't blow. at the tire dealership, they wondered whether this was an ongoing problem with the toyota prius - they had another prius in with the same problem. he indicated that it looked like an alignment problem. when he tried to adjust the rear alignment, he was unable to reset it to the recommended specifications. the same was true of the other prius that he had in the shop. so of course i should expect the new tires to have uneven wear. now i am very concerned about the safety of this car. at least i'm aware of the problem, but what about all the other prius owners that are in danger?? this certainly appears to be a design flaw - there should be a recall!! i have had regular maintenance at the recommended time by the toyota dealership. no one ever indicated that there was a problem with the alignment or any other kind of tire problem. but after reading all the other complaints on this web site regarding the tires, i feel the car is unsafe. i will be going to my toyota dealership & i know they will cover the cost of the new tires but that doesn't fix the problem. i believe toyota needs to make prius owners aware of the defect before someone is involved in a serious accident. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 29000 miles.

Toyota Prius 2002 Steering

Toyota Prius 2002 Steering Review #10082996

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on July 16, 2004.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . just wanted to alert you that there may be a potential defect with the torque sensor, which affects the power steering. i recently encountered this in my 2002 toyota prius with 43,000+ miles on the vehicle.*ak \ basically, there are no preceding symptoms before the power steering fails. upon failure, the prius central color touchscreen lcd display shows three icons, with the "ps" icon in red. you will also see an exclamation point icon lit on the green lcd display next to the speedometer. at which point, you have no power steering and the car will be hard to steer. \ when this occurs, there may be a temporary fix, which worked for me. pull over to a safe area and turn off the car. wait 30 seconds, and then turn on the car. you have effectively rebooted the prius computer system with the torque sensor, and the power steering should return for the time being. \ the vehicle should be taken to the nearest official toyota service shop (aka dealership) and have them run a diagnostic check. they should see code "c1513 torque sensor abnormal" in the prius' memory banks. then sit down for the price tag: $3159 - $4,160 to replace the entire power steering rack, since the sensor is integrated in the rack itself. this includes the labor of about $261. \ it is recommended not to accept any "cost coverage offer" from the service shop until you call the toyota consumer support line at 1-800-331-4331. make sure you have a service quote from the shop, then call the support line and complain. the support line will assign you a case worker and provide a case number. they will contact the shop and make arrangements to repair the vehicle. toyota covered the cost of the part 100% for me, and all i had to do was pay for the labor since my car was out of warranty per the 36,000 bumper-to-bumper coverage. \ in conclusion, i am very happy on how toyota handled the power steering issue. this is to inform other 2000-2003 prius owners if they encounter a similar problem. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 41932 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Oct 01, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM . a year ago, i had my 2002 toyota prius shipped to italy while i was on sabbatical. starting in october (2005), i started reporting to the local toyota dealer that the steering was stiff when returning the wheel straight ahead on sharp turns or when moving out of tight places where i had parked. i returned to the us for the spring semester, but returned in june, and found the same intermittent problem. my first thought was that there had been some damage to the car during shipping. this past sunday (july 9, 2006), however, i had a catastrophic incident that might have sent my wife and me off the small country road we were traveling on about a half mile from our home here south of florence in the chianti region. i had been on a steady downhill stretch which then reversed to in an s-curve on an incline. i turned normally through the first half of the s-curve when suddenly the steering wheel froze solid in a straight forward position and i had to jam on the brakes to stop forward motion of the car or go off the side of the road into a ravine. i was probably traveling under 15-20 mph, because the curves were so sharp and i was traveling uphill. to get off the road, i stopped and started the prius a couple of times to see if this were an electrical-computer fault as the steering system in this car had been replaced at 26,000 miles (more about this later). on about the third try, i was able with tremendous force to move the wheel off center and normal steering was restored. because there was no adequate shoulder on the road, i returned the car home, experiencing the same steering wheel lock-up more than once, jamming on the brakes to bring the car to a halt, and then wrestling with the steering wheel to the right and the left with the same immense force until it broke free. this was nothing like the previous stiffness i had experienced bringing the wheel back to center from a far left or far right position. (to be continued). *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 47000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JT2BK18U120. Toyota Prius 2002 problem was reported in PITTSBURGH, PA.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on July 09, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM . continuation of complaint (odi number) 10162367 the steering was each time frozen in the center position with no possibility of turning to the right or left. the earlier problem was not demonstrable to the toyota service manager when the car had been brought in for servicing in october 26, 2005 and march 2, 2006 (during a one week visit), but because i had more time in july, i had scheduled a total inspection for the steering mechanism on tuesday, july 11th. after this catastrophic failure, however, i had the car immediately towed to bi auto toyota in florence for repair. despite the fact that the towing charge was more than $200, i had no confidence that this car could be driven safely to the dealership. at the dealership, the service technicians identified the problem as requiring the replacement of the Ôscatola guida, a part with a price-tag of 2840 euros (approximately $3500). when i called back to my toyota dealer in pittsburgh, i was told that the most expensive steering part that could be purchased was the steering rack which was about $1100. however, the bells and whistles went off when bi auto provided the part number 44200-47060. this same part was replaced by rohrich toyota in pittsburgh on may 14, 2004, at 26,539 miles. replacement was soon followed with a warranty extension. similar experiences to mine are documented at http://www.priusonline.com/viewtopic.php?t=539&highlight=, but as far as i know, no one has reported this second incident two years and 20,000 miles later (the prius odometer now reads approximately 47,000 miles). moreover the symptom for the first replacement was a vibration when starting the engine and shifting into reverse. other individuals have reported the turning stiffness earlier and excessive and uneven tire wear (my rear tires were badly worn at 24,000 miles), but this is the first time for me that this total freezing of the steering wheel in a straight forward position has occurred. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 47000 miles.

Toyota Prius 2002 Steering Electric Power Assist System Review #10162369

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on July 09, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM . continuation of complaint (odi numbers) 10162367-68 earlier that day we had driven my daughter-in-law and granddaughter to fumicino airport in rome and then returned home. we could only imagine what a catastrophe would have occurred if that freezing of the steering wheel had occurred at autostrada speeds. in the meantime, bi auto in florence has informed me that the part (no 44200-47060) must be delivered from japan and will take a minimum of 10 days. in an attempt to expedite service, i contacted the toyota customer service in torrance, california (ref # 200607110691) to see if the part may be more readily available and shipped sooner from the us. their answer was no. further, they indicated that since the prius was outside the us, they were not willing to honor the warranty extension and thus the $3500 repair would be at my expense. i will now contact my us dealer (i bought a second prius in 2004, which is still in the us) to see if they will intercede on my behalf. but what's especially troubling is even if this replacement performed is whether (1) toyota has made any improvement in the replacement part to eliminate the failure (apparently the 2004 replacement was ineffective), (2) for how many miles might this new replacement part last, and (3) will there be any warning, such as the stiffness in turning, that will precede a catastrophic failure such as this freezing of the steering wheel. for the online form, i have provided my us contact numbers. however, until august 6th, i will continue to be in italy. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JT2BK18U120.

Toyota Prius 2002 Steering Column Review #10167957

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on July 09, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING:COLUMN . i purchased 2002 prius in june, 2005. in september 2005 power steering warning light came on 3 times while driving on freeway between tucson and phoenix. dealer said the power steering torque sensor was malfunctioning and would cost $1450.00 to replace. took to my own mechanic (authorized prius mechanic) who confirmed the dealers assessment and also told me that toyota does not provide parts to repair the power steering so entire unit must be replaced. problem disappeared for about 1 yr. then in july of this year, power steering warning light started to come on while driving from tucson to las cruces. also, steering wheel started to shake uncontrollably when backing up or turning while car was in motion. battery also failed when attempting to leave nm and had to replace battery at a cost of $140 with only a one year warranty and no one except toyota sells the battery. after discussing problems with my mechanic i called toyota to see if they would replace power steering column - they told me my car was too old and had too many miles on it (only 59k). i own a 1975 celica that has 265k miles and it has never needed any steering column work - how come a car 30 years later needs one after only 59k? i used to think toyota made a good product and stood by their cars, but i guess i was wrong. the 2002 prius in not a road-worthy car and the savings in gasoline consumption does not come anywhere close to paying for a $1450 repair on an obviously defective steering column. i do not feel safe taking the prius out on the freeway and steering wheel continues to shake uncontrollably. i will replace the power steering unit only when repair parts become available or the part breaks down completely. i doubt i will keep this car very long and i know i will not buy another toyota in the future. now when i am asked how i like my prius i tell people to buy a honda civic instead. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 56200 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on May 04, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . on may 4th, 2008, at or around 12:30 pm, i was driving my 2002 toyota prius normally. the hybrid system gave me a trouble light prior to leaving an auto parts store parking lot; however, i attributed the warning light to a recently replaced charcoal canister and dismissed the warning light, believing it to be related to the recently replaced part. i left the parking lot and proceeded on to my destination, which was my house, about 2 miles away from the store. without warning, and safely on a street with little traffic, as i was driving up a slight incline, the engine failed to start. the hybrid system is designed to run primarily on the electric motor driving the wheels and use the internal combustion engine (ice) for added power when the electric motors do not provide enough power. however, in my situation, the car needed more power, and the engine failed to start. i tried multiple times to get the engine to start by cycling the gas pedal, but to no avail - the ice still would not start. i had to pull the car over, shut it off, and restart the car to get the ice running again. normally i would not be this concerned about this problem, but had this issue occurred in heavy traffic, the car would have been a hazard to the occupants as well as other drivers on the road - the loss of the ice in a critical situation could lead to an automobile accident, especially if ice power is lost at a critical time, such as accelerating onto a busy freeway. because of this potential safety issue it is my belief that any year or model of the toyota prius is unsafe to drive on the road as the ice can be unreliable, which could potentially lead to automobile accidents. i did not take the car to be repaired nor did i attempt to resolve the issue; on may 5th, i traded the prius in for a different vehicle. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 90000 miles.

Toyota Prius 2002 Vehicle Speed Control Review #10307057

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Nov 15, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i drive a used 2002 toyota prius, which now has about 86,000 miles on it. in november 2009 i was parking when the car spontaneously accelerated. my speed was less than 2mph, my foot was continuously on the brake while easing into the parking space, prior to the uncontrollable acceleration. suddenly without warning i heard the engine race and the car bolted forward, unresponsive to my braking. i only stopped when my car collided head on with a parked car, which was moved about two feet by our collision. it happened too fast to even think of changing gear into neutral, because i was only 5 feet from the other car when the spontaneous acceleration occurred. after the accident i looked for cause and i determined that no object in the cab had accidentally pushed the accelerator pedal, including the floor mat. i believe that because of the small number of drivers experiencing uncontrollable acceleration out of the millions of toyotas sold, that the phenomenon is caused by two or more independent errors in the vehicle electronics, occurring unfortunately at the same time. the confluence of two unlikely events has even smaller probability, therefore few occurrences. for example if the cruise control failed to disengage and also there was a significant delay in the signal from brake pedal to brake drums, the combination could be tragic. the toyota prius 2002 model which i drive has not been recalled; however since the accident i have been ever on the alert, prepared to gear into neutral. even this vigilance will not provide safety if the distance between my car and an obstacle or crevasse is short when the flaw surfaces again; given the finite speed of human nervous transmission, the car's sudden, uncontrollable acceleration needs to be investigated. *cn.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 86000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on July 25, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . 2002 toyota prius steering rack failure. approximately 2 weeks ago the steering in my prius became difficult to turn and pulsated when turning. the toyota dealer, where i had purchased the vehicle, inspected the car and informed me that the steering rack was failing and needed to be replaced at a cost of $3,000. after researching this on the internet i found that this is a problem inherent to these 1st generation prius models. i contacted toyota customer service and opened a case to see if toyota would offer any assistance in the repair of my car. online at owner forums regarding this problem there were many instances where toyota would repair the vehicle at no cost to the owner or at least offer some assistance with the cost. i was refused by toyota with any help of any kind. i believe that since toyota was aware of this defect during the 2001- 2003 model run and changed the steering rack for the 2004 redesign to eliminate this problem that there should be a recall to address this matter. i base this on the volume of cars experiencing this along with the fact that toyota had a special service campaign in place at one point that repaired these affected vehicles when customers experienced this problem. toyota is no longer running this repair campaign. *tr.Mileage was 70000 miles.

Toyota Prius 2002 Steering Review #10379577

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 19, 2011.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . i have a 2002 toyota prius with 140k miles on it. the steering wheel started to shake violently last fall when i put the car in reverse. it now does this at low speeds, particularly around corners and is becoming an increasing problem at higher speeds. the power steering cut out on the freeway at 70 miles per hour last week. that convinced me i need to get a new car. i tried to trade it in at a local toyota dealer last summer and couldn't understand why they wouldn't give me more than $2.5k for it as i had paid $15k for it 2.5 years earlier. admittedly, i had been t-boned and a lot of work had been done on the car, but my dealer had it fixed it to where you wouldn't know it was in an accident unless it was pointed out. i researched the problems online and found this is a well -known design problem with the cars steering rack. i can't sell it to anyone as is. i'm stuck with having to do a $3k repair to a car that's worth less than that to its dealership. it scares me to drive it. they only made 26k of these cars. does every one have this problem? i spoke with toyota and they said they did offer an extended warranty repair on this, but since my car had >100k, the burden would be mine. they should be willing to resolve this design flaw. what is my recourse? again, i am afraid to drive it as i don┐t know what will happen. *tr.Mileage was 140000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Aug 05, 2011.TOYOTA PRIUS 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . toyota issued a recall in august 2011 on gen. 1 prius for a steering issue. we took the prius into local dealer and they replaced steering nuts per recall. within a week after recall fix, we noticed a violent shake to the steering wheel during a cold morning start. it had never done that before the recall. we took the car in after it occurred again and were told that our rack and pinion was wore and needed to be replaced. during the recall work, the dealership did a complete inspection of the car and nothing unusual was noted. how did they do work on a rack and pinion and not notice wear on it then? we believe when they torqued the new nuts to the steering pinion, this created undo stress on the torque sensor and is why the afterwork shaking is occurring. toyota needs to come clean and replace these racks free of charge for possible damage to alot of gen. 1 prius's when they did the nut recall. there is more of a safety issue now with the violent steering wheel shaking out of unsuspecting drivers than a nut that's going to break off. nhtsa, force them to do a recall now!!!! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 123099 miles.
