The Toyota Prius is one of Eric's favorite cars. They're safe, reliable and when they need to be taken apart they go back together flawlessly. Generation 2 Toyota Prius are at the right age for having the high voltage (HV) battery replaced. Typically an owner will get about 10 years out of the original battery. At Grand Rapids Hybrid, we replace HV batteries on a regular basis. This is NOT to say that the Prius has a failing HV battery system, but that the generation 2 batteries are at the right age to be replaced. At Grand Rapids Hybrid we only install new Toyota Batteries and use Toyota test equipment to verify the health of your Toyota hybrid.
Some symptoms of HV battery failure are:
- Warning lamps on
- Loud fan from the passenger back seat
- Performance down
- Gas mileage down
At Grand Rapids Hybrid, each HV battery comes with a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty, a hybrid health check to verify all hybrid components and three additional health checks (one every 12 months for the next 3 years) after installation to verify status and as our way of saying thank you for choosing Grand Rapids Hybrid. We are typically more reasonably priced than Toyota dealerships.
If you have any questions about the price of the replacement of the HV battery in your Toyota Prius (or any other hybrid question) give us a call today! 616-532-6600. Eric's advanced expert knowledge in hybrid vehicles is at your disposal.
