Toyota Prius Reliability

You won't find Toyota Prius reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Toyota Prius truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Toyota Prius reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Toyota Prius was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Toyota Prius has been recently.

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
