I HAVE HAD OUR PRUIS FOR A WHILE NOW AND I LOVED THE CAR. NOW THE CAR IS A NIGHTMARE AND A DANGER. THE ENGINE IS BURNING OIL AT AN ALARMING RATE AND COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHY. WE ARE HAVING TO PUT OIL IN IT EVERY COUPLE OF DAYS . IT DID STALL ONCE, SO I CHECKED EVERYTHING I COULD AND THEN NOTICED THERE WAS HARDLY ANY OIL ON DIP STICK AFTER CHANGE OIL A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE. THE DEALERSHIP DOESN'T TELL YOU ANYTHING ABOUT THE HAZARDOUS OR RECALLS FOR THE CAR. THEY JUST TELL YOU TO GET ANOTHER OIL CHANGE. ITS RECOMMENDED EVERY 3,000-5,000 MILES BUT EVERY 1,000 MILES IS RIDICULOUS PLUS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE IF YOU ADD IT UP. WE CANT AFFORD TO HAVE THE ENGINE REBUILT EITHER. TOYOTA NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS PROBLEM. I CANT BELIEVE THEY KNOW OF THE PROBLEM AND DON'T CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS' SAFETY. I ALSO READ SOME OTHER COMPLAINTS AND ISSUES WITH THE OIL BURNING OFF CAUSING HARMFUL GASES. MY WIFE WAS BACK AND FORTH TO THE DOCTOR FOR THROAT ISSUES. I BELIEVE IT WAS THE CAR ALL LONG, HUNDREDS IN DOCTOR BILLS FOR THEIR LACK OF HUMANITY. SO HERE WE GO AGAIN, ANOTHER VISIT TO THE DEALERSHIP. I WANT THIS PROBLEM FIXED BY TOYOTA. WE MIGHT HAVE TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION.
