Toyota Prius 2004 Seat Belts Rear Review #10051359

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 30, 2003.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SEAT BELTS:REAR . on the toyota 2004 prius the left rear and center rear seat belt buckels are interchanged. the left rear buckel is positioned in a vertical position between the left and center seats. the center rear seat belt buckel (marked center) is on a fabric strap that emerges between the left rear seat cushion and the left rear back cushion approximately two inches from the right edge of the leftrear seat cushion (if you are not careful you will sit on it when you use the left rear seat). as a result it is difficult to fasten the seat belts since they cross over and interfere with each other. it is also very difficult (compared to a normal seat belt) to open them due to the interference. i suggest that it would be extremely difficult for the average individual to open these two seat belts in an emergecy situation. as a result, i feel that this is a significant safety item that requires correction at an early date. the dealer, bill page toyota, stated that all 2004 prius they had received were the same configuration and they had no means to change it. they suggested contacting toyota. i have filed an offical complaint with toyota (#200312300834) and they indicated that there would be no feedback or correction. note: prius not on your list. entered rav4 to be anle to submitthis complaint .Mileage was 0 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 12, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . an article in yesterday's l.a. times (5/17) detailed a problem with the 2004/05 toyota prius, where it mentioned that 13 prius owners reported that their vehicles stalled suddenly, often at high speeds. on april 12, 2005, the exact same thing happened to me. while slowing from 65 m.p.h. on i-10 in west l.a. onto the i-405 interchange, easily one of the most congested highway interchanges in the country, my prius stalled and i was extremely fortunate to make it to the end of the interchange where the shoulder began. had it occured a mere two minutes later, i would have been in the fast lane of the 405, triggering a potential disaster and certain sigalert, as it occured at 8:15 a.m.--rush hour. my car had approximately 8,700 miles and was purchased new in august, 2004. i had it towed to toyota of santa monica where i purchased the car, and was dismayed at their nonchalance. a brand new car should not break down for no reason, and it could've resulted in a serious accident. more tro ubling, the toyota service department's technical assessment of the problem was that it was a "computer glitch," and that their repair service was to "reprogram the computer." i have been a loyal and vocal supporter of this hybrid vehicle, pleased in every way with the performance of the car. now when people ask, i give them much the same answer, but verbally insert an asterisk and tell them about the time it broke down without warning, and how i have no guarantee it won't happen again. you can count me as the 14th owner to report this identical problem. and you can be sure that we are only a percentage of the ever-growing prius owners who have experienced this. i hope your findings and the article will make their way to toyota's receptive and responsive ears. thanks. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 8700 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 08, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . driving my 2004 toyota prius home from work, the car suddenly lost power a few miles from my home on a busy thoroughfare. i drifted to the side of the road. all warning lights on the dash were on. i turned off the car and restarted it. it went a few seconds before dying again. this continued several times until i made it home. the incident caused other cars to have to slow down, honk and move around me. i was very scared. it was late at night. i called my husband to come help me but he was not home. the next day the car started and i took it to the dealership. they could find nothing wrong, and said they "reset the engine/battery ratio" so the car would rely more on gas than electricity , and that i would experience a slight decrease in my engine efficiency. i later complained to the service manager, that my prius has had numerous electrical problems since i purchased it in august of2005. twice it would not start in the morning and i had to have it towed. he also told me that what the service person told me was incorrect, that there was no way they can "adjust" the engine/battery ratio. he gave no explanation for my problems and said "no one else" has had any problems with their cars. i want to return the car for a new one, but he says he feels "confident" toyota will correct any problems i am having. i am afraid to drive the car in case this happens again. toyota has done nothing since i have complained. i feel they owe me a new car while they figure this out..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 6800 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 27, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE:GASOLINE . summary: internal combustion engine died while driving. lots of indicator lights on dash, and message appeared on multifunction display. was able to get to a safe location on battery-only power. details: driving home from town (about 10 miles). car was behaving normally, and had been driven approx 30 miles earlier today with no issues. just before we got home, the following lights came on (i recorded them exactly): (1) red triangle (master warning light), (2) engine check (amber), (3) brake system warning (amber exclamation point in parentheses), (4) vsc, (5) hybrid system warning light (this was also indicated on the lcd screen). lcd had a message on it which i did not record exactly (it was something generic like "there is a problem"). the info screen was indicating that we were running on battery only, and the car had very little "pickup", but we were on our home street, which is quite steep. the car has about 11000 miles, and did something similar when we first got it. after turning the car on and off a few times, the internal combustion engine seems to work again, and most of the indicators have now gone off. (amber "engine check" is still on). after all this happened, i got onto the internet to see if others had seen similar problems, and it looks like there may be a class problem (i note there have been a large number of these in the last few weeks - could it be temperature-related?) car was not out of gas (just refilled yesterday) - gas guage showing nearly full. vehicle was purchased august 2004 (after the tsbs came out that implicated computer problems), so i'm suspecting this may be a different issue than was dealt with there. [xxx]. will notify toyota tomorrow and request instructions as to how to proceed. *js information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 11000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 08, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . on four separate occasions the prius has had a complete loss of power to the gasoline engine, all the warning indicator lights have been illuminated and the car was able to travel only on battery power for a very short distance before draining the battery. twice this has occurred after stopping at a stop sign and attempting to proceed forward. twice it has happened while driving on the highway at 60-70 mph. when it occurred on the highway the car lost power except from the battery that allowed only 40-42 mph maximum speed. twice the car was towed to the dealer. the first time they performed a software update the second time they reset the computer. the last two times it has happened i have been able to stop the car, disconnect the 12 volt battery which has reset the system and the car performs as expected. this would appear to be software bug that requires further investigation by toyota. in any case, this type of occurrence causes an unsafe condition to occur..Mileage was 41900 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 15, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . i have had 3 'stalls' of my 2004 prius which i drive 150 miles a day and it has 48k miles on it. all of the engine stalls have been at low speed (under 20 mph) and have been preceeded by a red warning triangle light and the screen displaying something like 'critical problem'. on one incident i was in heavy traffic and managed to use the electric motor to get me to the side of the highway before the engine/motor stopped with no power. when i turned the power on/off several times the engine would start but there was no power. i did notice that on all three stalls my gas gauge was low (one or two bars) but i have run the car for thirty miles after the last bar started to flash so it's hard to tell if there is a connection. i did report this to the dealer but they had no information on it and the car reset each time after a period of time..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 40000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 15, 2004.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . i am estimating the dates - i took my 2004 prius to the dealer on october 12, as it was not driving right since i had done a "hard brake" the week before. the service dept was unable to find anything amiss. then, while driving to work that friday, my car indicated that i needed to stop the car immediately (via the red triangle etc. lights on dashboard). i was travelling at about 45 miles per hour at the time. i coasted into a left turn lane, but was unable to complete the turn into the parking lot as the car had shut down. i was pushed into the parking lot. i contacted the dealer and the car was towed to the nearest dealer (larry miller toyota on w. bell road). i was told the ecu was reprogrammed and that there was a service bulletin that was not sent to owners, but directed dealers to do the fix only when there was a car with the failure. my car has exhibited the red triangle one other time, 4/15/05 i believe, it was towed again, to bell road toyota. the answer seems to be "if there is no code on the computer that something is wrong, we cannot fix it, since we don't know where the problem is.".0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U740.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 29, 2004.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i own a 2004 prius. while driving approx. 60 mph on hwy 110 in los angeles, the warning light came on. less than 5 seconds later, the car lost all power. it even ceased to coast despite the fact that i was on a significant down hill grade. in an attempt to exit the freeway, i navigated the vehicle to the right, where it stalled completely in the right lane, blocking moving traffic. the california highway patrol (chp) quickly came (they were in the area and arrived without being called) and pushed the vehicle off the freeway. after waiting about 20 minutes, the car restarted and i drove for about 10 miles on surface streets. the next morning, i was able to drive one mile to the dealer. the service department of toyota of hollywood, where i purchased the vehicle, said it was due to a "software glitch" and that it needed to be "reprogrammed." they completed this work in less than 24 hours. they also replaced the bumper which had been damaged by chp in the process of pushing the vehicle off the freeway. their service was excellent and i have not had subsequent failures. nevertheless, it was a serious malfunction and should be thoroughly investigated..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 4500 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 02, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . toyota prius gas engine stalled after toyota service patch was downloaded to correct problem. bought car march 1, 2004. car stalled may 13 and june 1- see report filed under may 13 date. july 31, 2004 toyota downloaded patch to fix the problem and we thought it was fine. car was ok for almost a year. then, just 2 weeks ago on june 2, 2005 i was driving on the highway (luckily in a lot of slow traffic so only going about 40 mph) and the gas engine died again so the car dropped to 20mph on the electric engine. all warning lights came on again. this time i stopped and restarted the car and the engine (gas and electric) came back on. this is what the dealer had said that the other customers having the problem had found- if you stop and turn it back on after a stall everything works. so since my kids were not in the car i did this and drove it to a parking lot. the warning lights were still on and now i am really scared to drive the car. in all three situations i feel like i was just lucky that i was not going faster and especially inthe second case that the driver behind me was aware enough to avoid my suddenly powerless car. i thought it was important to report this because we thought toyota's software download put in in july 2004 worked to fix this problem but it clearly is still happening. i will not drive the car now with my children in it and am considering getting rid of it. if it were any other car it would be gone by now, but we are big believers in the hybrid technology and really waited to report this to give toyota a chance to fix it. i think this is happening a lot more than is being reported because a lot of the customers feel as we do that we do not want to report anything bad about the hybrid. however, this is too scary now and needs to be addressed. with a third baby on the way we were signed up for the hybrid highlander but unfortunately will wait until we know this problem is solved. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 23600 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 01, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . starting around may,2005, when vehicle was started with the battery indicator not quite at full capacity, lets say seven 'bars', just putting the car in reverse would begin the gradual decline of charge. if driving up a frwy ramp, the indicator would show the charge had dropped into the 'red' zone. at this time the engine would sound like the rpms were about 4,000, a real revving sound. slowly ,with a steady level drive the battery would recharge and look as if it were normal. there was no stalling of engine but i rarely drive as slow as 65 mph! the whole process, happening at least once a day was very nerve wracking...especially in the mohave desert with many 18-wheelers surrounding the car. the first time it happened i immediately called toyota of temecula valley. i was told that this was not good and to bring the car in for diagnosis. when i brought it in, a 'technician' looked at the indicator and said it was ok and not worry about it. i had a difficult time believing that and made an appt. with toyota of el cajon. when their technician used a diagnostic scantool he also said he could not find a problem. i did not believe him or the service $80/hr. guy and said there was either something wrong with their diagnostic tools and/or something wrong with them to think i would go along with their story. i had no idea how right i was until i read about the defect investigation on your website. my prius has not stalled (yet) but it has all the problems leading up to it. the dealership claims, on the work receipt they gave me, to have recalculated the hv ecu with the 40d code and the problem seems to be worse. i will have to go back again to the dealership and fight for my right to a speedy repair. *jb.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB22UX40.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 21, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE:GASOLINE . i was transitioning between two freeways in my 2004 toyota prius and had started braking/decelerating for a looming traffic jam up ahead when the gas engine stalled and all dash warning lights came on, along with the nav system screen saying "problem" and a red car icon. my speed could have been anywhere between 70mph and 35mph at the time of the stall. the electric motor was still functional, so i exited the freeway, parked the car, powered it off, then powered it back on. the red triangle of death was still lit on the dash, as well as the engine check light, but the gas engine was now operating normally and was recharging the almost-depleted electric drive battery. i was able to drive home without any further incident. the next day, i took my car into toyota of huntington beach for repair, and they "reprogrammed [the] electronic control module". my symptoms seem related to the pe05029 defect investigation and the nhtsa odi complaints of other prius drivers. this desperately needs to be a recall item because a sudden deceleration to 40mph on a freely moving freeway with other traffic traveling at 75mph could be a very dangerous rear-end collision risk..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 5681 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 23, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . nothing special or extraordinary led up to this failure. i was driving to work at about 7:00am. the temperature outside was about 70 degrees and the car is kept in a garage every evening. in the middle of acceleration (i was going about 25mph), the car stalled and the "red triangle of death" came up on the dash, along with several warning lights. the navigation system also provided the word "problem" and a little, red car symbol with an exclamation point in the middle of it when this happened. i was able to drive to an apartment complex under battery power only. i then shut the car off, waited a few seconds, and then started it again. the engine did kick back in after this, but the warning symbol (little, red car) on the navigation system didn't go away. i took the car to my toyota dealership and they said that they had to "recalibrate the engine computer." the car is now running as normal. the car is a 2004 toyota prius. my worry with this is what if this would have happened while driving across kansas, while 80 miles away from anyone to help you? the battery power surely wouldn't be enough to get you to safety. this is a problem inherent in the software of the engine computer and it should be fixed for all owners..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 25200 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 18, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SEAT BELTS:REAR . 1) the vehicle is a 2004 toyota prius, 3 1/2 years old and approx 76k miles on it. it has only been used for carrying passengers. 2) both rear passenger seat belts tore within a week of each other. the right side completely and the left side is approximately 90% torn. the only person to use the rear seats, on a fairly regular basis, is my 14 year old son. two weeks ago he got into the right side and noticed that the belt was completely broken. last week he got into the left side and mentioned that it was also torn. as it is right now, the only seat he can now use is the middle "lap only" belt. in looking at the belts, it appears that the tear is at the place where the belt passes through the plastic shroud covering the retracting mechanism. 3) talked with the toyota service rep yesterday. he told me that he had never seen anything like it before. but,since it was out of warranty it would cost approx $550.00 usd to fix. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 76000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 04, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:BATTERY . auxiliary battery on toyota prius 2001 and toyota prius 2004 fail if the car is not driven at least every 7-10 days. this prevents the car from starting. we purchased a 2001 prius used in march 2004, and a new 2004 prius in june 2004. the auxiliary battery failed on the 2001 prius twice, and we replaced it once. recently the dealer service representative told me the battery held a charge unless driven every 7-10 days, and should be disconnected"if parked for prolonged time." this was potential safety problem for car not starting, such as if returning on plane after 2-3 week vacation and not being able to start the car, risk for vulnerability awaiting jump start. toyota's only response was well, it was a hybrid. they claimed the hundreds of computers in the car drained the battery when parked. they could have designed in some automatic or simple switch to address this. also, they could notify the potential customer of this design flaw. they did not inform us, or any of the other prius owners. we have recently discussed the issue with. the owner's manual for 2001 model made no mention of it. in the 2004 manual there was a brief mention of need to disconnect the battery if parked for"prolonged time, but did not define that. although we have been happy with other features of the prius and other toyotas we owned in the past we considered this to be a serious and risky design flaw. furthermore, we considered toyota's sales people and sales brochures failure to notify us of this problem to be a significant breach of goodwill and respect for customer safety and satisfaction. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 0 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 30, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: INSTRUMENT PANEL . the multi-function display (mfd) failed. (cross reference nhsta complaint #10173892). this is a known design defect (cross reference analysis on web: http://techno-fandom.org/~hobbit/cars/mfd/compare.html and http://techno-fandom.org/~hobbit/cars/mfd/). toyota issued a technical service bulletin (either el-002-04 or el-002-05 - conflicting info on this) on jan 10, 2005. when the mfd fails, one cannot control the amount of airflow to the windshield (defroster). this presented me with visibility problems during the morning commute. as such, i consider it a safety issue. toyota has been aware of this for 3 years, given the date of their tsb. the root cause appears to be an undersized solder pad on one of the electronic cards of the mfd. this results in a cracking of the solder joint. because my problem was intermittent, coming and going on a frequent basis, i presume it was a micro crack. this does not help when the windshield is fogging over. all of the various error messages that were displayed on the mfd were consistent with the information on the above referenced web url's. the problem is with the release f of the electronic card assembly and was corrected with release g. there are pictorial comparisons between the two releases on one of the web url's. given that this has an impact on visibility during the winter months, i am shocked that toyota chose to sit on this problem. the supplier of this part to toyota is fujitsu. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Toyota Prius 2004 problem was reported in VIENNA, VA.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Nov 29, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . i own a 2004 toyota prius. i just paid $332.50 to have my 2 headlights' hib bulbs replaced - and that didn't include the parts cost because i provided the hid bulbs from an online auto parts supplier. the symptoms were the same as noted by so many other prius owners: frequent loss of light from the headlight, and recovery by rotating the light switch off then on again...only to have it re-occur a few minutes later. each headlight had its own pattern of inconsistency, but both had the dysfunction. i have received two traffic citations for driving with a headlight out. the dealerships in glen burnie, maryland and in laurel, maryland both quoted me a price for one hid bulb of $351.02 i was able to find the exact bulb online at partsquick.com for a price of $57.27 that's right, the dealership wanted to charge me $293.75 more per bulb. i purchased two online, which - with free shipping - cost me $114.54 for both. do the math...for two light bulbs only (not counting labor) online i saved $587.50 had i not purchased the bulbs online, the total out-of-pocket to replace both headlamp bulbs would have been: $ 702.04 parts ($351.02 x 2) $ 332.50 labor $1,034.54 total the dealership told me they couldn't guarantee that the bulbs were the problem, nor that replacing the bulbs would solve the problem, but that toyota instructs them to replace the bulbs first. this is insane, and certainly unsafe. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 91384 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 14, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . driver-side hid headlamp in 2004 toyota prius was noticed to be very, very, dim (effectively off) around 2008/10/14. turning headlamps off and on restored brightness. but the problem recurred at unpredictable times--frequently enough to be a serious safety problem. frequently the driver can't tell while driving, whether one headlamp is off, and obviously it's unsafe to fix it by turning it off and on while driving. toyota dealer replaced driver-side headlamp on 2008/10/15, for $600! on 12/15 the driver noticed the same headlamp again was misbehaving in exactly the same way, and the problem has recurred since then at apparently random times. priuschat.com's many posters about this problem make it unlikely that just the bulb is the problem. probably the ballast. but toyota won't comment. i do still have the original bulb, and the box from the new bulb. lisa at toyota corporate customer experience center replied around 2008/10/18 that toyota would reimburse half of the $600. but as of 2009/1/3 no reimbursement has been gotten. i called toyota corporate again on 2008/12/16 and damian said he must forward my new complaint about the repeated failure to lisa, and that she was "required" to respond in one business day. she has not responded as of 2009/1/3. there are many complaints about exactly this problem on priuschat.com at http://priuschat.com/forums/care-maintenance-troubleshooting/34584-headlight-problem-26.html. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 106900 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 15, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . contacted toyota in february 2009 with the following complaint/description: recently my driver side headlight had been blinking off intermittently while driving. i then would have to turn the lights off and back on to get the light to come back on. last night (feb. 15th, 2009), i was taking my daughter back to college and both headlights unexpectedly turned off while driving on a very dark stretch of highway. needless to say, this was very unnerving. i tried to quickly turn off lights and then back on. they came back on on after a few tries, but then they did the same thing to me on my return back to home. this was a 6 hour round trip on a sunday. i did not have any recourse but to try to make it home. i feel this is an extreme safety issue and took it to the dealership monday. the dealership ran some tests and said it was the hid bulbs and not the computer ($375/bulb!!!!!). i then visited a prius chat site that another customer told me about as we were waiting for our vehicles. apparently this problem is very widespread. i am now forced to only be able to drive my prius during the day because i never expected a $900 price tag to change out the bulbs on the headlights, and i am unable to pay that cost right now. also, i live off of hwy 78 in saint clair county which is a very curvy, hilly rural road with very little light. if the lights had spontaneously blinked off on me on this road when either i or one of my teenagers were driving the vehicle, it could have had a far different result. will it take a death or injury to initiate a recall on the headlights? to replace bulbs on 2004 prius, you must remove the front bumper and have a special tool to remove back of headlight assembly. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 155000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 16, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . on my 2004 toyota prius, the lights go out randomly. of course, at night. i took it to two toyota dealerships, and the first couldn't replicate the problem. the second dealership said the fix for one light would be an astonishing $850 because it's a defective electronic controller. since my lights worked intermittently or after being turned on and off...and after searching the internet and discovering this defect is common. i'm thinking lights cutting out while driving, is quite dangerous, and it's a potential hazard for both drivers and pedestrians. many prius owners believe this is a product defect in need of a recall from toyota before someone gets hurt. *tr.Mileage was 124000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 26, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM . failure of inverter/converter coolant pump. hybrid vehicle has 2nd coolant loop for high voltage inverter/converter. failure of inverter/converter coolant pump allows inverter coolant temperature to rise well above nominal. at a certain trigger point hybrid control ecu sets a trouble code that immediately disengages operation of inverter/converter (and simultaneously disengages cruise control and a/c, which runs of alternating current produced by inverter). immediate impact is a sudden loss of vehicle drive power as inverter/converter supplies to electricity to motor generator 2 (mg2) which is directly connected to drive wheels and supplies needed motive force to maintain highway speeds (ice alone is insufficient). also inverter/converter coolant loop provides cooling for mg2 & mg1. continued operation of vehicle with failed inverter/converter coolant pump could result in catastrophic failure of main electric drive mg2 and subsequent loss of motive power. pump failure occurs without warning, although there may be a brief period of intermittent pump operation/non-operation prior to final failure. the failure seems to be the result of either a defective inverter/converter pump ass'y or one insufficiently engineered to withstand continuous operation in such a critical component. pump failure occurred after approximately 160,000 miles, although has been known to occur in other instances as early as 32,000 miles. sudden loss of power and disengagement of cruise control at interstate highway speeds could cause driver to lose control or to be unable to safely steer to a safe breakdown lane. *tr.Mileage was 160000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on July 10, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i am having the same problem described here: the multi-function display (mfd) failed. (cross reference nhtsa complaint #10173892). this is a known design defect (cross reference analysis on web: http://techno-fandom.org/~hobbit/cars/mfd/compare.html and http://techno-fandom.org/~hobbit/cars/mfd/). toyota issued a technical service bulletin (either el-002-04 or el-002-05 - conflicting info on this) on jan 10, 2005. when the mfd fails, one cannot control the amount of airflow to the windshield (defroster). this presented me with visibility problems during the morning commute. as such, i consider it a safety issue. toyota has been aware of this for 3 years, given the date of their tsb. the root cause appears to be an undersized solder pad on one of the electronic cards of the mfd. this results in a cracking of the solder joint. because my problem was intermittent, coming and going on a frequent basis, i presume it was a micro crack. this does not help when the windshield is fogging over. all of the various error messages that were displayed on the mfd were consistent with the information on the above referenced web url's. the problem is with the release f of the electronic card assembly and was corrected with release g. there are pictorial comparisons between the two releases on one of the web url's. given that this has an impact on visibility during the winter months, i am shocked that toyota chose to sit on this problem. the supplier of this part to toyota is fujitsu. *tr.Mileage was 127000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . left headlight will turn off with no apparent cause. you can turn off the lights and immediately turn on and it will come back on again. there doesn't appear to be anything that triggers. dangerous when driving at night since you have to briefly drive without the lights on .. to turn off and back on again. when spoke to dealer about replacing was quoted $600... "because we have to remove the front bumper to get to the headlight" (toyota design flaw?) but the bulb itself costs $400!! this first started occurring in january 2008 and we "lived with it" for a year before spending the $558.15 that it cost to replace the one bulb in february 2009. we were prompted to do so especially since our daughter was learning to drive and we could not allow her to have to deal with this safety issue. the light is working properly now, but i am not convinced that it won't happen again ...if the bulb was the problem you wouldn't think turning it off and then immediately back on would fix it temporarily. when i spoke to toyota to complain about the cost and apparent defect they gave me no indication that this was a reported problem. she made it seem like i was the only case.. deceitful i think. after searching online i discovered on my own that this was a known problem that many others had. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U540.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 09, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . passenger side headlight flickers very dimly. i just noticed it today, on my mother's prius. did some research, and was amazed at the cost to have the dealer fix this. if it was just the cost of the bulb itself, i could swallow the rather large $130 price (at kragen) and do it myself, but the notes here, and on many other sites indicate that bulb replace sometimes fixes the problem (for a short period of time), and at other times, it does nothing. i would hate to throw $130 down the toilet. the primary issue though, is that the headlight goes dim/out intermittently, without warning or pattern, and there is no way to reliably get it re-lit. i don't feel save asking my 69 year old mother to turn the headlights on and off if it's dark out side (and if it's not dark, how would you know it was working or not). i agree, it does sound like a defect as many many people are having the issue, but more importantly, a serious safety issue. how long must we want before some action is taken by the nhtsa? *tr.Mileage was 39500 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Nov 12, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . i wrote this agency a few months ago regarding my 2004 toyota prius and the problems i was having with headlights alternating on/off. turning the light switch on/off would turn it back on. three or four months ago both lights started going out at the same time. turning the light switch on/off intermittently 5-9 times makes them turn back on. so far i have had this happen to me 3 times within the last week traveling 40-55 miles an hour. i have just read that you guys stopped your investigation. how many accidents or deaths do you need before anything is done about this. when headlights burn out they don't come back on. this is obviously an electrical or computer glitch that toyota has to be aware of. in all my years of driving, i have never had an experience as that of everything going dark and just having to hit the brakes. luckily when it happened last night the car behind us saw our brake lights and came to a safe stop. they flashed their headlights not knowing why our car was stopped in the middle of the road. i request a reply to this complaint since no one contacted me on my prior complaint. thank you. *tr.Mileage was 113200 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 22, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, ELECTRIC . i purchased a 2004 toyota prius new in june of 2004. in the last month i have had 3 incidents where the brakes failed while driving. suddenly the brakes go to the floor, the car loses power and the warning lights go on. the last incident also included a high pitched tone which persisted until the car was shut off. the first incident happened on nov.19, 2009. i was driving at a low rate of speed and noticed a slight hiccup in the engine while turning a corner, then about 500 ft. later, the warning lights went on and the brakes went to the floor. i shut off the engine, then turned it back on and drove slowly to the side of the road with the warning lights on and called my dealer, who told me to have it towed in. they had the car for 3 days, and replaced the abs ecu with actuator, the actuator assembly and brake for a total repair bill of $3383.69. on december 22, 2009 the same sequence of events occurred in the morning. i was able to drive the car home at a low rate of speed with the warning lights on, then took it to the dealer, who could not find the problem and told me to bring the car back next week. later that day, the car experienced the same brake failure while driving at a low rate of speed. i had the car towed to the dealer. they now tell me they cannot find the problem and the car is not displaying the warning lights at this time. they plan to keep the car for a week or so to see if they can duplicate the problem. i have a 50 mile round trip commute to work on the freeways of southern ca. if the car dies on the freeway in rush hour traffic an accident would likely ensue. the dealer has treated me very well through this, but i am concerned that they are unable to get information from toyota to diagnose this problem. you have one other complaint for my model year with this same problem. surely there are others, as i have seen similar postings on the web. toyota must know about this defect, which i will bet is a programming error. *tr .Mileage was 104200 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 11, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i own a 2004 toyota prius. just last week the touch screen that controls the heating / air conditioning, the radio, the current mpg information and condition of the ni-metal hydride battery and the gas engine interconnections, began to fail. sometimes it works for a while, then it stops for some time then it might or might start working again before i get where i am going. it is extremely intermittent in its correct operation. i have read on the internet that many other 2004 and early 2005 prius owners have encountered this problem, but that toyota is refusing to issue a recall. the new part is very expensive (~$4,000). refurbished parts are not readily available for the prius, i suppose because it is a relative new model to toyota. i wanted to report this to you, in the hopes that you might have some way of letting toyotal know that one more owner is having this problem. i did not know if you can force a manufacturer to issue a recall when a certain number of owners complain, or if this is only the case where safety is involved. *tr regards, dale w. howard .Mileage was 144679 miles.

"allegations of momentary loss of braking capability while traveling over an uneven road surface, pothole or bump," but this problem which has happened repeatedly (usually on the same pothole on the same street) has never caused me to loose control of the car for more than a split second. so until i read this passage i thought i might just be imagining this problem. if it happened for even more than a split second i could see how it would cause me to lose control and possibly get in an accident. but that hasn't happened yet. *tr.Mileage was 75000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 29, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . this is an update to the complaint i filed on 2008/10/14, odi 10253642 about prius hid headlight failure. since that incident i have had the driver and passenger side bulbs replaced four times and swapped left-for-right for diagnosis twice. even with those new bulbs, which my dublin, ca, toyota dealer swears are the newer, "good" bulbs, the headlights always have failed again within one to four weeks. actually, those are the intervals at which i have *noticed* the failures, but i'm sure the bulbs failed sooner than that, because sometimes it's hard to tell while driving, and the lights always relight when switched off and on. there would have been even more replacements and failures, but i have delayed taking the car in for repair until i could drive into the dealership while the light was out, as proof that it has failed. it's obvious to me and every other prius owner that the bulbs are either not the problem or at least not the only problem--the electronic control module undoubtedly also or instead is faulty. toyota corporate continues to refuse to acknowledge the severity, persistence, and breadth of the problem. yesterday the dealer repeated the left-for-right swap because "toyota corporate demands that diagnostic procedure." but the dealer admitted that no more information will be gained than was gained the last time they swapped left for right, when the light worked there at the dealer, but failed on me subsequently (the same-side headlight with the swapped bulb). they are simply avoiding the expense and liability of replacing the control computer. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U140.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 18, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . we own a 2004 toyota prius. on 02/18/2010 it lost power on the road, major malfunction lights came on, among others, and had to be towed to the toyota dealer in carlsbad, ca. after diagnosing the problem, they said the computer had failed and needed to be replaced. when the computer was replaced it started transmitting new problem codes, namely, poa94, poa78, po279, and po555, which meant that the transaxle had failed, and computer codes show that the inverter could fail also. total repair cost: $5,594.00 so far. if the inverter fails, it would be a total of $9,843.00 to repair. i don't see who would pay this exorbitant amount, let alone being able to afford it. the same incident occurred on 09/15/2008. the prius had lost power and we took it in to the dealer. they performed a diagnostics test, test drove the vehicle on the freeway for 9 miles, it ran o.k. and no computer trouble codes were found at the time. this sounds like it was a prelude to the vehicle failure were are experiencing today, and we are suspecting it has to do with the electronic system. as it stands now, the prius is sitting at the toyota dealer. they had removed the new computer in light of the fact that the entire vehicle is totaled. in short, the prius was fine one day and totaled the next. they told me that this doesn't happen very often. please let us know what we can do to resolve this problem. thank you. *tr.Mileage was 122271 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 23, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . recently, i performed a routine flush of the brake fluid on my toyota prius. when i started the prius after completing the brake fluid flush, there were warning lights showing on the dashboard for the brakes, the traction control system, and the anti-lock brake system. this didn't surprise me that the car detected an abnormality during the brake bleeding operation. what did surprise me is that the prius computer instructed the front brakes to become non-operational the trouble code in the prius computer automatically disabled the front brakes because the computer was confused by the varying pressures present in the brake lines during a routine brake fluid flush. i drove to a repair shop with only the rear brakes operational. at the repair shop, a technician cleared the trouble codes for the brake system stored in the electronic control module of the prius. the brakes were then completely operational. i find it unconscionable that the car could decide on it's own to disable the brakes, even when the brakes were otherwise fully functional. please require toyota to program their control modules to allow the brakes to function when trouble codes are activated. .Mileage was 56000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 25, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . i was driving my 2004 toyota prius with my wife and infant during the evening last summer, and out of the blue three red indicator lights came on as well as a buzzer, and my brakes stopped working. the pedal was able to be pushed all the way down to the floor. pumping did nothing. since it was late there were no other cars around, so we were able to coast to a stop using the emergency brake. i got out of the car and checked for any damage underneath the vehicle, and found nothing. over the next hour while waiting for the tow truck, we tried restarting the vehicle several times, and the brakes were just gone. we finally got towed and got a loaner car. the next morning after the toyota dealer had a chance to look at the car, they notified me that they found nothing wrong with the car. they did a couple hours of diagnostics on my dime and reset the fault codes. there was no air in the brakes, fluid levels were just fine, and there was absolutely nothing wrong with anything. apparently the brakes fixed themselves in the parking lot over night. this has made me fearful since that day that it could happen to me again at anytime, perhaps during rush hour next time. i've contacted toyota and the dealership since then, and the only solution they have to give me is to have my brake system checked regularly. this doesn't seem like a normal thing to happen at all, and i would feel guilty even selling this car to someone else at this point. i'm not sure what more i can do so i am now reporting to safercar.gov. *tr.Mileage was 113000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on July 15, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . within the first year of owning my 2004 prius i experienced unintended acceleration. in the old days (i'm 71) if you experienced unintended acceleration you would right off check your gas pedal and floor mats. that kind of problem wasn't all that uncommon when you owned old cars. if you didn't find a problem in the area of the gas pedal you would pull off the side of the road and usually find the throttle spring on the carburetor messed up in some way or something along those lines. well, when it happened on my prius going about 40 mph on a stretch of road not so far from my home i instinctively checked my floor mats and throttle shaft for interference or sticking. no problems found. i got the car stopped - don't remember how (with years of driving experience you instinctively try things until you find something that works). anyhow, after that i went directly to mytoyota dealer where they checked it out but found nothing. the problem never occurred again. now i see this claim that it's not an electronic problem on this drive-by-wire car. i don't believe it. if you think about it, if it happens just one time on my one prius in thousands of miles of driving, that makes an incident of this sort pretty rare, rare enough to where it's unlikely to occur under controlled tests (it would be infinitely easier to find the proverbial needle in a haystack). virtually every microprocessor controlled product i've ever used has required a reset now and then. usually there's no indication of why the product locked up (or whatever). if you use satellite tv, a dss modem, or own a pc i'm sure you've experienced it. why it should be any different with car microprocessors is beyond me. the answer is for the government to require some kind of fail-safe apparatus on every drive-by-wire car in the future (i see toyota is already implementing this concept into their 2011 cars). heck, my life or the life of my children or grandchildren might very well depend on it. *tr .Mileage was 14000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 17, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . i have a 2004 toyota prius. i have noticed that when going over a bumpy patch of road, if i brake, sometimes the brake appears to not catch for a brief time (1 second or so). at first i thought it was my imagination, but over the years it has happened often enough that i am convinced the sensation is real. i have recently read about others describing the same experience. i cannot give an approximate date or mileage; this has happened repeatedly over the 6 years i've owned the car. consequently, the date and mileage i am entering is the most recent time when i noticed it. *tr.Mileage was 54000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 12, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, ELECTRIC . while driving on city streets (low speed, under 30 mph), i attempted to brake. at first there was no response from my brakes, then the abs kicked in and stopped my vehicle. road conditions were dry and there was no apparent reason that the abs system should've kicked in. at that time both the abs warning light and the brake light came on and remained on. while sitting at the stop light i attempted to shut off my vehicle and restart it. after doing this both warning lights were still on. i drove very slowly to a safe place to pull my car off the road. each time i attempted to brake the abs system engaged resulting in a jerking braking motion. at that point i looked at my car's manual and followed the instructions to have my car towed to the nearest dealership. the dealership hooked my car up to the diagnosis machine which rebooted my car's computer. once off the diagnosis machine, they were unable to recreate the error and sent me home in my car. no further service was done and i was instructed to bring it back to the dealer if the brakes failed again. *tr.Mileage was 104000 miles.

Toyota Prius 2004 Engine And Engine Cooling Cooling System Review #10332367

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 10, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM . driving home at night on the 405 freeway at approx. 65mph, suddenly all the dash warning lights illuminated, including the mil symbol, along with a warning symbol on the navigation screen. i pulled off the freeway and parked at the curb. after checking the owners manual, i slowly drove the rest of the way home on surface streets. the next morning (monday) i drove my car to miller toyota in culver city. the primary diagnosis was failure of the inverter coolant pump, which was replaced under the terms of my toyota platinum extended warranty. however, upon further research, i discovered that toyota had issued a technical service bulletin (tsb) covering this very part, on january 26, 2007, indicating that they were aware of this failure-prone part, and that an "improved" replacement assembly was now available to address the issue. in addition, replacement would be covered under their 5-year/60,000 mile toyota powertrain warranty. approximately one month later, on may 15, 2010, while driving my father's 2004 prius to have new tires installed, the same sequence of events occurred. i immediately drove the vehicle to the nearest dealer, santa monica toyota, where it was diagnosed with the same failure code, p0a93 (inverter cooling system performance). although the vehicle had only 34,242 miles on it, it was not covered under the powertrain warranty, as the time limit of 60 months had expired. no amount of discussion with the dealer or toyota's customer experience center could convince them that this part should be considered part of the hybrid system, and as such be covered under their 7-year/100,000 hybrid warranty (despite it being named the hybrid inverter coolant pump). on-line prius-related chat rooms are full of identical situations involving this part. clearly, toyota knows this part is prone to premature failure, but continues to treat it as a "secret warranty" item in order to avoid having to issue a formal recall. *tr.Mileage was 69042 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 20, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . my complaint has to do with the high energy discharge (xenon) headlights on my 2004 toyota prius. beginning sometime in february 2010 my wife and i began to notice that the drivers side headlight would shut down after the lights had been on for a few minutes. if the headlights were quickly turned off and then back on (say, while stopped at a traffic light), both headlights would work just fine for a while. i tried to replace the bulbs (d2r type xenon bulbs) which i purchased at a local car parts store for approximately $90 each. after trying to follow the instructions for replacing the bulbs (found in the owners manual), i was unable to open the bulb holders. when i had the car at the dealership (capitol toyota) for service in late april 2010, i asked if they could fix the headlights. the service rep told me that mere diagnosis of the problem would cost $600, with any ballast or bulb replacement added to that cost. i have never paid more than about $40 to replace both of my vehicle headlights prior to this. i appreciate that these bulbs should cost more than halogen or other types, but the costs i'm encountering are outlandish. in the mean time, we are still driving the car with the problem. headlights work for five to 10 minutes, and then one, and now, sometimes the other headlight will shut down. recently, our daughter arrived back from a brief trip complaining that the headlights were very dim. i found out that neither headlight was working - the only lights on the front of the car were the fog lamps. we now do not drive this car at night, and wonder how we will fix this problem. *tr.Mileage was 121000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Nov 24, 2011.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VISIBILITY . the multi function display registered the error code: check connection of air conditioner. a diagnostic test at pappas toyota on 12/2/11 showed a defective mfd. a new replacement would cost $4300. a refurbished one was to be located but a call was not received as to this having happened. toyota was aware of this possibility at least by 1/10/2005 when a service bulletin was issued. since the defect in the part was known to toyota and involves a safety issue a request for warranty replacement was made. this request was denied. on 12/23/11, after having been told a week would be needed to find the part, i e-mailed pappas and asked that one be located. i made an appt. at that time to have it installed on 1/3/12. i had not received any information by 1/2/12 so i called again and learned the part was to be ordered on 1/2/12 as toyota was closed for the holiday period. the mfd activates the front and rear defrosters. this is critical as the inability to do so is a safety issue in missouri with snow and ice being a possibility. on 1/4/12 a message was received from the dealership, the essence of which was: those displays are on back order status at this time; the mfd holds the memory for the mileage odometer so when it is ordered the vehicle can not be driven so that the actual odometer mileage remains the same; and until i hear from you i have placed your order on hold; there are currently two orders ahead of yours and they will be filled first; they are not able to give us a timetable when they will be released; and once they are available it will take approximately 7-10 business days to receive. toyota is not making the necessary part available; expecting the consumer to be deprived of use of the prius for an undetermined period of time; and of bearing the cost of the defective part. the consumer stated the problem has been resolved. updated ivoq 03/09/12 *tr.Mileage was 41520 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2012.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i need your help! there is a manufacturing defect well documented as a common problem with 2004 toyota prius multi-functional display (mfd). the problem is that the 60 pin connector on the printed circuit board of the mfd sometimes develops a play in the connection and hence the sporadic display. i wrote to toyota customer service. toyota instructed me to take my car to the dealer and speak to toyota. told me that he did talk to the toyota rep and explained to him that i had been taking very good care of my car and that this mfd problem was not my doing. told me that it would cost $980.57 to install a remanufactured mfd. and that the toyota rep is only going to contribute $250. so net out of pocket for me would be a substantial amount of $730.57. it is unfair for toyota customer service to ask me to pay, since this is a common problem with 2004 toyota prius mfds that is well documented to be a common problem. i have already spent a lot of time and money on the problem. toyota customer service is taking the approach that it is out of warranty and there is no recall so we don⿿t want to do anything. that logic is wrong. if there is a common problem that may have not escalated to a recall status, that does not mean that there is no problem. recall is if enough people have problems. meanwhile, you cannot deny for all the people who are stuck with this problem. it has been clearly demonstrated that this is a manufacturing defect that toyota is responsible. your high level intervention is needed. please write to toyota demanding that it would only be fair since the mfd problem is clearly documented to be a manufacturing defect, that toyota repair without delay at no cost to the client, since he has already suffered enough. thanks! information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6) *tt .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 92000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on July 16, 2012.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . upon starting the car one morning i noticed the speedometer, fuel and gear indicator digital readouts were not working. i researched the problem on the internet and narrowed the problem to a faulty combination meter (bad solder). this problem has been occurring with numerous other prius owners according to forums and such. i purchased the car at a ford dealership and also purchased their ford esp base care plan. clearly the plan stated the speedometer/odometer, electrical or mechanical problems were covered. however the agent at the extended warranty office denied the claim. so my car sits at a toyota dealership with the dash apart and the appraised value of the car less $2000.00 according to the sales dept. because the mileage is unknown. toyota has yet to declare a recall for the problem which could result in death in some cases if not properly addressed. i have two children and value their lives. i hope and pray that toyota comes around. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 59600 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Sept 08, 2012.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . the dash gear selector (common to 2004 - 2009 g2 prius) began clicking when i changed gears (r-d-n) i researched the subject and learned that this can lead to the shifter locking in d or r, a hazardous condition. i also learned that some diy owners have discovered a warped dust plate in the shifter component. it causes this problem. their solution is to remove the plate, trim it, and reassemble the part. link 1 below is a google search that reveals the other two links i included. not all of the hits are relevant. the third link has a video with clear images of the problem and the diy 'solution.' https://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&safe=off&complete=0&site=webhp&q=prius+%22gear+shift%22+click+sticking&oq=prius+%22gear+shift%22+click+sticking&gs_l=serp.3...2446378.2449925.0.2450814.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0..0.0.les%3bcpsugrpq1..0.0...1.1.iimlxlk1u2c http://priuschat.com/threads/gear-shifter-sticks.38199/page-2 http://priuschat.com/threads/how-to-replace-2g-gearshift-lever.65102/ i am believe that toyota should be asked to recall these cars to replace this dust plate (or the shifter module.) unfortunately the gear shift module included with the car does not have a lifetime consistent with the 10 year/100,000 mile warranty on the traction battery. it is dangerous to have owners make this repair themselves. this could be avoided if toyota were required to do it instead. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 69135 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 01, 2013.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . a couple of month ago, i thought i noticed that the front drivers side hid headlight was off when the passenger side was on. i was driving in my other car while a family member was driving the prius. when i looked at the prius a short time later, both light where on. over the past couple of months i have noticed that the driver side headlight has been intermittently off when it should be one. cycling the lights off then on appears to turn both headlamps on for some period of time. there is no indication in the car when the failure occurs, and i am concerned that this creates an unsafe situation while driving at night. while trying to determine if this is a known problem, i came across owner chat groups where others where complaining about the same problem. i also read that there might be an nhtsa investigation into similar complaints. i would like to know if an investigation has happened and if so, what was the outcome? *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 185000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 30, 2013.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . i was traveling on i95 when all the brake warning lights came on (abs, brake, etc.). i tried to slow down the car, but the brakes didn't seem to work. finally, the regen system kicked in, and slowed the car. when i jammed my foot hard on the brake pedal, the car stopped with a jerk. this is not the first time this has happened. the first time it happened (when all the lights came on), i brought the car to the dealer (kendall toyota), they reset and recalibrated the computers in the car, and everything seemed ok. about 9 months later, the same thing happened. this time, the abs computer had a hard failure. they replaced it with a low mileage used part, and everything seemed fine for about 3 months. then it happened again last thursday. brought it into kendall toyota on thursday evening, and on friday they told me the i needed a new abs computer. turns out toyota knows about this problem and has redesigned the abs computer, but never sent out any notice to their customers. this is why the used part didn't last long. this a very dangerous situation and i could have easily been in a serious accident if i had not experienced faulty braking in the past (see below). a new abs computer plus installation from toyota cost approximately $3000. the symptoms i was having when i reported complaint # 10292409 were identical to those above, except that no indicator lights came on. they car did not want to stop (and even seemed to "run away") until i jammed my foot on the brake. searching the internet, this seems to be a common problem with prius. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 90000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Nov 14, 2013.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . the basic problem: the gear shift selector sticks in drive or "b" (engine braking mode). if the driver stops the vehicle, with the brake depressed, and then presses the park button to put the vehicle in park, the vehicle remains in drive mode. the vehicle will move as soon as the driver lifts their foot from the brake pedal, even though the driver believes they have engaged the park mode. the driver has to place the normally spring-activated gearshift lever into the home position before the car will shift into park. danger to the driver and others who drive the car. this is very dangerous, as the driver gets very used to being able to place the car into park by pressing the park button. others who drive the car, like parking attendants or friends, will not suspect a problem. the failure of the park mechanism when this happens is going to cause accidents. toyota's response. the toyota dealer's technician says it is a broken spring in the gearshift mechanism, but wants me to pay for it. toyota's customer care center says they will not fix this design flaw because of the age and mileage of the vehicle, unless i pay for the $565.00 gearshift module. although the vehicle now has over 165,000 miles, this is a safety issue, and the design seems unreasonably dangerous. i have seen other complaints about this problem on chat sites, and another on this site. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 149472 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 13, 2013.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . problem started with the right headlight turning off intermittently. i reported the problem to the local dealership on 8/27/2013 when the vehicle was serviced. the dealership indicated that they could not find a problem because the problem could not be duplicated. then the same thing started happening with the left headlight. i can correct the problem by turning off & then back on the light switch but this correction does not last long and the problem recurs. i have resorted to driving with my fog lights also turned on in order to provide some semblance of light. it is difficult and dangerous to drive like this in the long alaskan winters with so much ice and snow on the roadways. i can also make this problem occur when warming up my car in the driveway. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 76000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 05, 2014.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . while driving on the interstate at night, both headlights suddenly went out. neither the high beams nor the low beams worked. i had to pull over, and turn the car off. when i turned the car back on, both headlights worked fine. this incident occurred about 4 weeks ago, and i took it to the dealership. the dealership could not find a cause, and i don't think that they believed me. i had no problems with the headlights for almost 4 weeks. then 3 days ago, the exact same thing happened again. i was driving on the interstate at night and both headlights suddenly went out. again, i pulled over. when i turned the car off and back on, they worked fine. this is extremely dangerous and frightening. i have called two dealerships and neither of them have heard of such a thing. however, in researching the internet, i easily find that this has been the subject of a class action lawsuit involving prius model years 2006-2009. so there should be information out there that toyota should be telling their dealers. i don't know if it's an electrical or computer problem. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 240000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 01, 2013.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . starting last year my passenger side headlight intermittently turns off and will turn back on once i turn lights off and on. passenger side light continues to periodically shut off for no specific reason throughout the duration of the trip. this issue has caused numerous lighting safety issues as well as instances of being pulled over for headlight being out. after extensive research on internet i have discovered that this is a very common issue that toyota has failed to address. i petition for the nhtsa to please look into the issue described above. i seek a favorable and just decision in regards to urging toyota to do the right thing and address the popular defect in not only.2004 models but several other prius model years. toyota has previously issued a recall for 2006-2009 toyota prius'. this precedence indicates that toyota is well aware of this problem and has neglected to take accountability and action in establishing a recall. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 85000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 11, 2014.TOYOTA PRIUS 2004, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with AIR BAGS . i was in an automobile accident recently on april 11, 2014 involving a deer and unfortunately flipped and totaled my 2004 toyota prius. as i was driving down a road shortly after midnight, a deer jumped out in front of the vehicle and initial instinct was to hit the brakes and swerve. when i did so, the tires caught loose gravel in the road and sent my vehicle sliding sideways, my initial reaction was to regain control so i attempted to turn the wheel, which caused the vehicle to hit an embankment and flip landing nose down in the ground. the vehicle was traveling 40-45 mph and the front end was ripped off of the vehicle and the sensor bars for the airbags were broken and the shock trigger was also set off but the airbags did not deploy. the seat belt was buckled and intact causing a harsh burn and gash in my neck as well as several bruises to prove as such. during the rollover, the top of the vehicle did not hit the ground. in the process of the accident, my right humerus right above the elbow was completely shattered and i had to undergo a four hour surgery to have plates and screws put on my bone and 62 staples to hold together the long incision from the operation. now having to endure physical therapy 3 times a week for months as i have lost most mobility in that arm and nerve damage. *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Toyota Prius 2004 problem was reported in RIDGEWAY, VA.
