It's easy to access, and right in front of you when you're in your Prius; right in front of your right leg, to be exact. This way, when Torque loses connection, it will know to try reconnecting using this protocol. In return, the electric motor provides the driver with more power and torque while reducing fuel consumption. It still seems to me almost 2 years later that the Prius has a lot of torque. Units Affected 52377 Our last update referenced a problem with the Prius's touch-screen, which appeared to need calibration.
It's compatible with Bluetooth-equipped Android smartphones. I had my Prius towed in to the dealer in July 2010 because it wouldn't stay running. Hybrid technology Toyota Hybrid combines the power and range of a conventional engine with the environmental benefits of an electric motor. Unplug the abs sensor if equipped. I could always tighten to 20 ft-lbs by feel first and use common sense.
