2010 Toyota Prius IV 4dr Hatch
98-horsepower 1.8L I4 Hybrid, CVT, FWD

this prius suffers from oil consumption. it seems common with 2010 Prius vehicles. We got the oil changed and then a few months later the oil light came on and I checked it and it was empty. I freaked out, did a LOT of research, and its evidently a thing, it doesn't smoke, it doesn't leak, gremlins drink the oil while you sleep! :P but really, these engines specifically this year are guilty of consuming about 1qt per 1k miles and Toyota says it's normal. So be aware, check your oil frequently. Beyond that the thing runs great.
