    What has happened to Toyata Prius - the best-selling hybrid car in the world and Toyota's flagship model? Toyota has discovered there were design problems with the antilock brake system.

      TOYOTA made cars are still reliable, as well as HONDA, ASIAN CARS rock!

      These are just small problems and we all hope they can survive this prob.

    This Model has been Dumped from their range and discussions have been taking place between Toyota and the old Fiat designers, to re-introduce the Fiat Bambina with a retractible power plug and lead; to replace the Prius.

    All manufacturers have quality control issues.  Cars are assembled from parts from many manufacturers.

    So there is a problem, and they fix it.  So?

    Simple.  People are finding out they've been sold a bill of goods regarding these 'green' cars.  They're a joke and owners are having buyers remorse.  There are literally hundreds of Prius on used car lots all through and around Nashville.  All hype, no meat.

    For the most part, it's a software problem. Toyota has a solution and will probably be implementing it on Toyota cars in the coming weeks. I don't know of many Prius drivers who are having buyers remorse, even with the current acceleration problems. If the used car lots in Nashville are filling up with used Priuses, the sellers probably should have gone somewhere else to sell their car. They've got fantastic resale value in most of the country. I just took a quick look on eBay, and I'm seeing 3-year-old Priuses selling for $13,000 - $16,000.

    Nothing has happened to the Prius. You can still go into a Toyota dealer and buy one right now.
