It’s hard to believe, but Toyota Prius hybrid cars have been on the market for around 16 years already. And while there are a few of those cars with the original Toyota hybrid battery that they were purchased with, other owners are finding themselves in quite the predicament – their hybrid dealer has told them that they need a new hybrid battery. Maybe they’re losing power, showing signs of poor performance, have terrible fuel economy or not starting. All of these are signs and symptoms of an aging hybrid battery but the sticker shock that comes with this diagnosis can be quite terrifying!
When your dealer tells you that you need a new hybrid battery, the price tag could be between $4,000 and $5,000! One of the motives for buying a hybrid car in the first place was probably some economic savings, so why would you want to invest thousands more dollars down the road, right? Hopefully this happens before the many-mile warranty on your hybrid battery runs out, but if not, there is another option.
