AT ABOUT 125K MILES, MY PRIUS NEARLY RAN OUT OF OIL BETWEEN SERVICES, AND I RELIGIOUSLY SERVICE MY VEHICLE. I BURNED 1 TO 2 QUARTS BETWEEN SERVICES SINCE. AT 272,408 MILES, I JUST PAID $5751.59 FOR A COMPLETE ENGINE REBUILD... REST OF CAR IS IN GREAT SHAPE. OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEMS WERE KNOWN BY THE DEALERSHIPS, BUT I WAS GIVEN NO RECOURSE EXCEPT DEALING WITH IT. LATEST ISSUE..CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON, MISFIRE ON CYLINDERS 1 AND 4 (PROGRESSING TO ALL), HORRIFIC KNOCKING NOISE WITH SOUND OF RUSHING WATER UPON START-UP. EVENTUALLY, (ONCE THE CYLINDERS FIRED SIGNIFICANTLY) THE ENGINE COULD RUN SATISFACTORILY FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE DRIVE... UNTIL THE NEXT START. EARLY ON I READ THAT TOYOTA KNEW OF THE UNDER-ENGINEERED MOTOR OF THE 2010S, BUT I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANYTHING ANNOUNCING A RECALL OR CARE TO FIX THEIR ENGINEERING ISSUE. I HAVE MY SERVICE RECORDS TO VALIDATE THE CARE I'VE GIVEN TO MY CAR. THE DATE OF THE ENGINE REBUILD IS WHAT I WILL PROVIDE AS TO WHEN THIS HAPPENED, BUT THE OIL CONSUMPTION BEGAN YEARS AGO.

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
