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.

I realize that I am replying to a 2008 Message. My 2005 Prius which I bought new has a touch screen display that is slowly getting dimmer as it ages. I used to work on touch screen displays that had the same problem. The answer is to replace the small florescent bulb that no longer is outputing the same lumens as it once did. Unfortunately, Toyota doesn't have a part number for the bulb and will only replace the entire touch screen display at a cost of over $3000 . I am going to research how to get at the display to see if the light source is replaceable.
Anybody else have anything to add to this?

I bought a 2007 Prius a couple of months ago,and honestly in sunlight I can't see anything.Not the speedometer or the information screen.Anyone think that anything could be done.My car is still under a bumper to bumper warranty.

I checked it out. There is no part number for the florescent tube. It doesn't even look replaceable. The entire touch screen assembly would have to be replaced. The cost of that is over $3000. A refurbished one is half that. Try turning the brightness up all the way or buying a sun shied for it.I have seen them on Prius Chat web site
See if they will replace it.

I have the brightness set to high,but although it looks fine when it's overcast,when it's sunny...I have to use my Garmin GPS to see my speed.
