Problem with 2004 Pruis May 10, 2005 12:14 PM

Just an FYI, but last week the gas engine stopped while my husband was driving home from work & sitting in traffic. It restarted when the car restarted, and when we took it in to the dealer they said it was a software problem that they just received an update on. Other 2004 Prius owners may want to check this out.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Thanks for posting that tidbit Elizabeth. Something to keep in mind for those of us hoping to pick up a used Prius.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Nothing to fear about the Prius May 14, 2005 11:31 PM

Too strange!!! The Toyota Prius is a full hybrid. It's design is to totally shut off at stop signs to save a gas & emisions (yes it is SUPER clean green machine). Shutting off is one of the beauties of this car. Enjoy it. The old "dinosaur" vehicles are soon to be extinct. ; )  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

This wasn't the car stopping at a stop sign. We've had the car for over a year so we're fully aware of that happening. As you mentioned, the Pruis is a hybrid, so it runs off of the gas and electric motor. The gas engine stopped functioning.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
