The stealer, er, dealer, will want $1200 or so. You can buy from a Toyota dealer on the net for between $800 - $950. Search. The extended warranty is treated as a big money maker by most dealers. They try to pressure you into buying it at the last minute of the paper signing process. Don't give in. You have three years to buy it (must be purchased before your factory warrenty expires).

CANT SAY I HAVE AN ANSWER FOR YOU BUT HAVE HAD AN INTERESTING OCCURANCE. I LEFT MY2006 (2000 MILES) IN THE GARAGE FOR FIVE DAYS WITH THE DOOR AJAR. THING WENT COMPLETLY DEAD AND I SPENT AN HOUR IN THE HATCH BACK TRYING TO GET IT OPEN. DIDN'T SUCCEDE. HAD IT TOWED. DEALER SAID I SHOULD DRIVE IT MORE. MANUAL IS JIBBERISH. I NOW KNOW HOW TO DO IT BUT I BET YOU CANT FIGURE IT OUT.

Was in a Toyota showroom couple of days ago. A just sold Prius was sitting there in the showroom, hood open, charger connected to the fuse box. Glad it wasn't my car!

I am going away for five days. My car only has 200 miles on it. I am concern about it not starting. What can I do to make sure it will be ready when I return. There is no one I can ask to start it up for me while I am gone.

Our Prius is in and we will pick it up on Tuesday. Getting a loan was an easy sale because of the fact that it is a hybrid and gas prices will only go UP in the future. It is Red with a #2 package. Yes--we bought barely street-legal tinting and the 7-year extended warranty package as well. This seems to be a wise thing to do based on what I've heard in this group. Any OTHER suggestions?

Man, I am REALLY getting a serious case of new car envy. It must almost be time to buy again
In any event, once you pick up your new baby, be sure to stop into the New Prius Owners - Give Us Your Report discussion and tell us all about your first impressions and experiences!

Its most likely caused by not tightening your gas cap enough. Blame the EPA, not Toyota. Happened to us 3 times.
#610 of 711 Hooking up Bluetooth
Jul 27, 2006 (5:24 pm)
We just purchased a 2006 Prius which we LOVE. We have a Motorola V710 cell phone with bluetooth and cannot figure out how to install it. Our salesman directed us to the website www.toyotaletstalk.com but that was not helpful since our phone is not listed there. Does anyone have any suggestions?
#611 of 711 Using "B" to go uphill?
Jul 27, 2006 (9:43 pm)
Does anyone use "B" for going uphill? We find it climbs the hills better when in that gear, but according to this website it uses up a lot more gas that way and is not good for the car, and should only be used for descending steep hills. What is everyone's experience and opinion?
