- The fuel gauge may give you the wrong reading with the Toyota Prius. There is some fault with the calibration that involves the hardware rather than the software.
- There is also a chance that the hybrid transmission may fail prematurely. This almost always occurs after every thirty thousand miles and can be avoided if you change the transmission fuel every so often.
- The center multi function display may also stop working which can be caused by poorly soldered internal connections.
