TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Toyota Prius

2015 Toyota Prius Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2016 From the second generation onwards the Toyota Prius has been among the most trouble-free cars in TrueDelta's Car Reliability Survey. There's no reason to expect this to change with the redesign. The Civic has been nearly as good, while the C-MAX and Volt have beeen about average. Because the Prius has a reputation for long-term reliability, it also depreciates much more slowly than the C-MAX and Volt. full 2016 Toyota Prius review
