Car Review: 2008 Toyota Prius
May 13, 2013, 01:07 PM
My 2008 Pruis started blowing only hot air when the AC was on. I took it to a Toyota Dealer. Who had me bring it back Four times, saying they was puting dye in with new coolant looking for a leak.
In the end I had to pay over $1900.00 for the air conditioner to be fixed.They replaced the evaporator box and a valve. Is this the normal cost for this problem in the Pruis's. Very expensive labor.
What started as a way to save money on gas has been very costly. They kept the car for a week and did provide a loaner car. But if my car is going to start breaking down with less than 40,000 miles on it. I think I might as well forget any saving and get a different car.
