I need to bring our 2010 Prius back-in. The last time [xxx] with a "y" worked on the rattle
in the dash. He was able to fix that but now only
in the cool mornings there is a popping sound coming from the dash. Please contact me as to when he can work on it again. It is very important that it be done first thing in the am. Car needs to be cool! I am sure if left in the sun it will not
do it. If needed I can bring car in first to show problem and car
can stay over night again if need. I know Toyota has a quality problem in this area, I will report
it to Toyota mfg. & dot under other. Looks like other Prius
have this same problem. . . [xxx]2010 Toyota Prius
