Toyota Prius Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Toyota Prius reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Toyota Priuss with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Toyota Priuss that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Toyota Prius lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Toyota Prius has been recently.
