The 2007 Toyota Prius is covered by a standard three-year or 36,000-mile warranty. The Prius is also supported with a powertrain warranty, which covers five years or 60,000 miles. The hybrid elements, including the battery, battery-control module, hybrid-control module, and inverter, are covered for eight years or 100,000 miles. Automobile Magazine notes that "there is also 24/7 roadside assistance for three years. Although the Prius isn't cheap, Toyota is underwriting the true cost of the program, meaning that consumers are getting more hardware than they're paying for, literally."
Edmunds reports, "So far, it seems Toyota's reputation for reliability and durability is holding true for the Prius." However, Edmunds warns that "potential buyers of a used Prius should take extra care during the research process. As the Toyota Prius is quite complex, future repairs and part replacements, though rare, could be quite expensive."
