How Reliable is the Toyota Prius?

September 18th, 2015 by

Hybrid vehicles offer the chance for major savings on gas for those who drive a lot. Especially when gas prices are high, the added fuel economy of a hybrid engine can make a massive difference to your monthly budget.

Are they reliable, though?

How many miles do you think a car could go without a breakdown? What about how long a hybrid could go without needing a new battery?

For some drivers, 435,000 is that number.

Actually, Bob Old has had his Toyota Prius for that long and still hasn’t had a breakdown.

Toyota vehicles were built for reliability, and hybrid models are no exception. Though no one could guarantee you’ll have Bob’s luck– 435,000 miles is on the high end– with regular service and maintenance, there is no reason to expect your hybrid battery to fail.

So, if you’re looking for savings on gas, or a way to reduce your environmental impact, a hybrid from Beechmont Toyota can be an investment that will last you miles and miles to come.
