are you still working for Toyota?
My wife and I have an '08 Prius and are looking at purchasing a very low mileage '05 Prius.
Are there any "issues" with the '05 that we should be aware of??
I tried to send you a private email for this question, but you are listed as private so I am posting it here in hopes that you see it.
For the rest of you please forgive the off-topic post, but I would be very interested in any comments that folks have on the '05 models with Nav!

I guess this is more of a suggestion for Toyota, maybe it is fixed on the new models. If I have my climate control going, then switch to AUTO AC on the steering column, then switch it again, using the steering column, it turns everything off! Why wouldn't it just revert back to what it was on before? VERY annoying...then when I turn something back on, usually to vent, with the controls on the dash (not the steering column) the ac is automatically on etc... just annoying. Not too difficult to make the car revert to where things were before I wouldn't think.
Otherwise, a great car. wish i had the money to buy the 2010...mine is a 2008.

That light comes on every 5,000 to indicate an oil and filter change is due.
Shut it off by holding down the ODO button while pushing start.
After a sequence of flashes, the reset will be complete and the light will be out.
#106 of 127 Malfunction indicator Light (MIL)
Aug 06, 2009 (6:23 am)
I have a 2001 Toyota Prius with 49000 miles on it.
Off-late I am seeing the the MIL indicator coming up (& staying on) when I insert the Key and turn it to 'ON' position. However the indicator goes away when I start the engine or drive. Does anybody know what might be wrong? Is this something I should be worried of?

You can download the Prius guide online. Remember that this isn't written by Toyota - but by Prius owners. I've fouind it helpful and written more simply than the manual. Not sure if this is what you want but the web address is:
As for the manuals, if I was you, I would search for some used ones on amazon.com, ebay.com and craigslist.com, etc. Hope this helps!

If by manuals, you mean "owner's manual", and "warranty" manual, and the like, you can get it from the parts department.

I have a 2010 toyota prius and had my first oil change done at jiffy lube, They were terrific, but could not reset the light due to reset specs are not yet available. I dont want to pay more money at the dealership. Jiffy Lube was nice enough to offer to reset it if I brought in the instructions. please help ..

On the 2004-2009 - Engine off, hold down the ODO button while turning on, keep holding the ODO button until the light goes off. Just did it the other day.
2010 may be different.
