Intermittent problem. When shifting from R to D, it does not engage in D, and slips back to R. Beeping sound lets me know I am not in R, so I do not apply gas. They could not duplicate the problem, or find any codes. Nothing done. Continued intermittent problem with the transmission not engaging when shifting from R to D. Goes back to R. Sometimes takes 3 tries before D engages. Could not duplicate the problem. Kept the car overnight. No codes. Decided it must be a driver problem. Have owned previous Toyota hybrids (Camry and Prius) with no such problem. Have to wait until the problem can be duplicated.

My car started having a hard vibration as I drove to work. Acceleration made it worse. Drove the short distance to work, and then had it towed to a local Toyota dealership. No codes came up, other than a hard misfire in cylinder 2. They proceeded to take the engine apart looking for a mechanical problem, but found none. Called in some experts from Toyota who had them "try things". Eventually they found it was an air pocket in a fuel train(??). This was not covered under warranty. The car was 2 months beyond the 3 year warranty. I had just purchased it in May. Eventually called Toyota who extended a good will reimbursement to me. No one could explain how or why this happened. I have since noticed some vibration when driving at high speed. I am concerned that I have purchased a lemon.

The Car is Burning Excessive Oil. About 3.5 quarts in 10000 miles. Apparently a common issue on a Toyota Prius (2010-2015). Interesting thing is it's not burning enough oil to do the "repair". According to the Toyota TSB on the issue the car needs to burn more then 1 quart in 1000 miles. The repair is to replace the pistons and rings which is not trivial, and rather expensive. I will do an oil analysis and see if I have excessive metal. And if not switch oil to a 0w-30 or 0w-40.
