About Toyota Prius Plug-In

Seen as a modified version of the mainstream Prius, Toyota Prius Plug-In, also known as Prius PHV and Prius Prime, has been produced by a renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation since 2012 as a mid-size plug-in hybrid automobile. Also belonging to the Prius family, Toyota Prius Plug-In has been produced through two generations till now but the second-generation Prius Plug-In is actually called the Prius Prime in the United States, thus, we will focus on the first generation. Still, it won lots of recognition like its siblings such as it was a finalist for the 2010 Green Car Vision Award, won the 2012 Urban Green Vehicle of the Year award and Green Car Report's Best Car to Buy 2012 Award. 
The first-generation Toyota Prius Plug-In was produced from 2012 to 2015 although the concept car was already unveiled at the September 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the October 2009 Tokyo Motor Show and the December 2009 LA Auto Show. It came with two trim levels: Base and Advance as a 4-door hatchback. Fitted with the same powertrain as the regular Prius but with a more efficient, higher-capacity lithium-ion battery pack that can be externally recharged, the Toyota Prius Plug-In was also powered by a 1.8 L inline 4-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor with a total output of 134 horsepower. And power is sent through a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) to the front wheels.

Toyota Prius Plug-In Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Since Toyota Prius Plug-In is pretty much the same as the regular Toyota Prius, thus, both strengths and weaknesses of Prius could be found at the Prius Plug-In. It means that you also need to pay more attention to these common problems on Prius: 
First, engine failure is not only the most common problem on Toyota Prius but also on Toyota Prius Plug-In. some Toyota Prius Plug-In drivers complained when the vehicle reaches about 197,000 miles, all symptoms start to emerge altogether. And simply the excessive oil consumption wastes their lots of money. Other symptoms such as the consistent noises from the engine, misfiring, stalling or hard starting engine, vehicle losing power while acceleration and the Check Engine Light is activated. In your vehicle, you need to make sure the oil filter, air filter, spark plug, oxygen sensor, oil pump gasket and timing belt are working properly. 
Many enthusiastic drivers are kind enough to offer as much as information about this issue and they said when the vehicle has a mileage of 15,000 miles, you need to pay more attention to the braking system. Normally, the braking failure often manifests as noisy and poorly responded brakes, pulsating brake pedal and score marked rotors but symptoms such as parking cable could not hold the vehicle properly and rear brakes are locked up on wet surfaces. Thus, you should keep a close eye on the condition of your brake disc, brake drum, brake caliper, parking brake cable and brake proportioning valve. 
A long-lived Toyota Prius Plug-In always need extra efforts to sustain and routine maintenance on some vulnerable auto parts is one of the efforts. For example, the wiper blade is often made of soft rubber, which decides that it is a consuming product, and it always sways back and forth to clear off debris on the windscreen so that drivers' vision won't get blocked by raindrops, snow or even bird droppings. Replacing it every six to twelve months is the right move. Other parts including headlight, fog light, cabin air filter, door handle, seat belt and emblem should be on the routine maintenance list as well.
