toyota corolla battery life
Does anyone here have a reliable knowledge (as in, not a number you just got out of your ass) of the cost of replacing the HV battery in Australia for the 2nd Generation Prius (2004-2009). You see a lot of bandaged numbers around $ 2000 to $ 8,000, but given the relatively small Australian market, few of them have already needed to be replaced. Especially as a guarantee. With most of the 2004 and 2005 models now out of warranty, it’s an interesting question to know exactly what the cost is. I know that in the US, it seems to be about $ 3000, so to be honest (considering how much more we pay on everything else here) I would not be at all surprised if this was double. Does anyone have any solid information on this?
I would prefer to see if I can find information from other owners first. To be honest, I’m not even sure that the dealer will provide me with accurate information under the circumstances. (Yeah, it’s sad to say, but that’s how much I trust them). I think a new battery is installed from 3 to 4 large. But you would need a probably after 500,000 km.
I wonder what the price of cups (aka me)? Whooh 685000 km, beautiful car at low km. 🙂 It was a taxi, I bet these guys know where to get the best price on the pieces. I wonder what the price of cups (aka me)? I think if something, they are more likely to swell the figure in an advertisement to make it look like they’ve grown up to keep it. How many Kms got your Prius? Usually, Toyota helps a lot with a private use vehicle, I’m surprised they did not give you one. I think a new battery is installed from 3 to 4 large. But you would need a probably after 500,000 km. A good way to get one is from a destroyed Prius – should be about $ 600.
Yes, I’m not sure how many \good\ shoulders will be readily available, given the relatively small number in Australia. As for the typical battery life of 500,000 km, I’m not sure this is true. I know it’s hard to draw statistics when you do not know the underlying population numbers on which they come from. But in the US, they often report battery failures in the range of 100 to 200 kmiles (160k to 320k km). My wife’s Prius has about 175 km of km, and yes, it continues to be strong, but I find it costs much faster than the new one, which is a sure sign that the battery is aging .
This does not affect performance at this point and it still gets 4.3L / 100k, but I’m aware that I could possibly be ready for a battery replacement. BTW The car saves $ 1,800 a year in fuel and, within 3.5 years, it owned it (purchased / h), it did not need a thing other than oil and rubber. SoI can not complain too much about it. 🙂 As for the typical battery life of 500,000 km, I’m not sure that this is true. I know it’s hard to draw statistics when you do not
