Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Toyota Prius saloon?

You'll have to get your Prius serviced by an official Toyota dealer. However, while all dealers can work on the second-generation 2004 model, that wasn't the case with this Prius, so check your nearest dealer is familiar with the car before buying.

While this Prius has not been subject to any recalls and reliability seems to be up to the usual high Toyota standards, owners have reported some problems. These include the risk of a valve in the exhaust system corroding with road salt in winter and the remote central locking control playing up.
