Failure Date: 05/11/2003

2002 new Toyota Prius delivered with bridgestone potenza tires. These tires have failed after 12,000 miles. Then changed tires (all 4) which failed at 10,000 miles. Toyota corporate says its not their concern. Dealer told me they are not safe tires. I have replaced tires every 10,000 miles. Toyota corporate recommends these tires and takes no responsibility for them.

Failure Date: 09/14/2001

Continued excessive tire wear possible cause vehicle weight and alignment problem. I am on my third set of tires in 30,000 miles and the tires that are now on the car are wearing poorly after less then 5,000 miles. Toyota is refusing to help me with this problem any further then they have. The car wonders in slightly windy conditions and freeway driving which fells unsafe. Toyota has had to replace the computer and do a valve job due to the loss of power I experienced, which could have been a very dangerous situation.

Failure Date: 08/19/2001

On four different dates, 5/01, 8/9/01, 8/10/01, 8/19/01, the above mentioned Prius has lost power in interstate traffic causing driver to move to the shoulder of the road and proceed on battery power to next exit. This would be a very dangerous situation in areas of our state where highways are under construction and concrete barricades take the place of shoulders. After the fourth incident the dealer is ordering some replacement computer part. We are concerned about the frequency of this problem with other similar vehiciles since they are new to the united states driving community.
