The Hybrid Transmission May Fail Prematurelyon Toyota Prius

The hybrid transmission may fail prematurely. Our technicians recommend changing the transmission fluid every 30K miles in order to help prolong transmission life. This service recommendation is over and above the Toyota recommendation to "check" the transmission fluid every 30k miles.
