Mechanic shops and dealerships charge an arm and a leg to diagnose and repair Prius because they can. I have the knowledge and means to make repairs without the overhead. So I am able to offer my services at a fraction of that cost. I have 45 years in the automotive industry and I specialize in repairs on the 1st, 2nd 3rd and 4th generation Toyota Prius.
I diagnose and repair or replace the following ABS ACTUATORS, DASH LIGHTS, HYBRID BATTERY, MULTI-FUNCTION DISPLAY UNIT, WATER PUMPS and 12 V. BATTERY AND MORE.
All repairs come with a ONE YEAR WARRANTY ON PARTS AND LABOR.
Prius: first generation
The first-generation Prius helped conserve energy through extensive use of heat insulating material in the body surrounding the cabin so the air conditioning system didn’t have to work as hard.
The 1.5-litre Atkinson cycle engine in the first-generation Prius was a low-rev machine that redlined at just 4,500rpm. Because of this, Toyota was able to optimise fuel efficiency by using lighter moving parts, a smaller diameter crankshaft, less spring in the piston rings, less load on the valve springs, and by significantly reducing internal friction.
Thanks to its comprehensive system of emissions reduction – focusing on CO2, HC, NOx and CO – the first-generation Prius was able to position itself as the world’s cleanest car in terms of both CO2 and harmful emissions.
Toyota designed a new world-first electric air conditioning system for the second-generation Prius that deleted its dependency – and therefore its fuel draw – on the petrol engine. Powered now by the hybrid battery, it also meant the interior could continue to be cooled when the engine was shut off.
The new Prius was the first vehicle in the world to simultaneously comply with strict emissions regulations in three separate continents, comfortably exceeding requirements in Europe, Japan and the U.S.
The engine of the second-generation Prius offered the world’s highest level of thermal efficiency. Despite the clear fuel efficiency advantages of combustion on the Atkinson cycle, Toyota remained the only manufacturer to use this engine cycle in production cars

) No drive belts are used in the powertrain of the third-generation Prius, a world first that improved reliability and reduced maintenance costs. The efficiency of the brake regeneration system is also kind to brake pads. So much so, in fact, that by the time of the launch of this generation, only 8.7 per cent of all Prius models sold in Europe had required new brake pads.
The fourth-generation Prius delivers the biggest step-change between any generation of Prius, achieving improvements of more than 20 per cent in fuel economy and CO2 emissions
