The fuel tank only fills 3/4 of the way.

22 Feb

I can only get about 9 to 10 gallons max into the gas tank when empty and Toyota won't do anything about it.

12 Jan

I have owned this car for a year and weeks after buying it learned that I could not fill the 14.5 gallon tank as there is a design failure with the gas tank sensor.

I am giving this a one star because I think it is underhanded and possibly illegal to have a known defect (gas tank/performance) and sell these cars without fixing it or disclosing it.

5 Sep

Only issue is the gas tank.

4 Sep

However, they gas tank only fills up 10 gallons which is much less than the manufacture states it should fill resulting in less total mileage.

15 Aug

Also, to many rattle noises.

11 Jul

The only downside is that the vehicle sounds at all times like multiple pieces are loose on the interior… there are rattles in the cabin from every direction that cannot seem to be found or fixed.

20 Mar

The car has a lot of wind related noise at highway speeds and fabric seats are not comfortable.

22 Feb

Also, this thing is noisy.

10 Jan

Bought this Prime XSE right off showroom floor with a substantial premium (dealer mark up) and on the first drive almost returned it, reasons: rattles and noises caused by road imperfections.

30 Dec

8 Dec

Car is a little noise inside, Seats are a little uncomfortable for long ride.

The random noises and poor seat comfort are just plain aggravating and long term irritants.

10 Nov

The only thing I do not like are the noises at any time

5 Nov

Excessive loud noise when in reverse.

There are some things to improve like a full-digital instrument cluster, a tachometer (hybrid), oil temp and voltage readings, hood-opening hydraulic struts, illuminated windows and mirror

The loss in efficiency I have seen is when I have to accelerate hard at traffic lights or when the car is used for very short drives and the engine has to heat up lowering mileage (especially in freezing temperature).

30 Dec

There are no side mirror defrosters and the dash defrost that has a vent aimed toward the side window is useless for defrosting the driver side window - it blows toward it

14 Aug

So far the only disappointments are the inside air vents could be bigger for better air flow, and they need to fix their act up re color choices and options which vary dramatically from model to model.

This is a better version of regular Prius with better energy efficient features.

23 May

The main disadvantage of the Prius is a very uncofortable (hard) back seat, and not very much in the way of advanced electronics.

11 Mar

The Prius Prime is about the equivalent of driving an I phone!

Great gas mileage since it Is a plug in hybrid.

17 Mar

And this vehicle is not a plug in which is awesome

25 May

If you've ever driven a Lexus, there is much the same feel as far as the smooth ride feeling and low engine noise.

21 Mar

2) The motor rattles like it needs a valve adjustment when idling, esp. cold.

15 Feb

The CVT transmission removes all the noise of the shifting gears of other models.

13 Jan

However, with only 69 miles I'm experiencing rough shifts, excessive vibration at the steering wheel, and rattling coming from the engine compartment (seems to be when the radiator fans turn on).

28 Dec

But when I drove it on the Freeway at 60 to 70 miles per hour I had increased noise and vibration and in the cabin from the wind and tire noise on my way home.

27 Dec

There was some road noise

9 Dec

The seats are uncomfortable and it sounds like it has road noise and nothing

29 Nov

The chrome beauty rings on the speedometer and tach buzz at time, grab an move them little and the buzz stops, a tiny bit of dense rubber wedged under the ring would likely stop it permanently,..on of these days, I'll do that.

8 Sep

The front plate mount rattles super loud at idle.

6 Aug

The wind noise is horrific at the drivers door.

26 Jan

I found out that Toyota had sold Camrys and Rav 4s with a software problem in which certain cars never fully shut off and were draining there own batteries!

8 Jan

Our 2020 camry le has had a dead battery twice with only 8000 miles.

9 Dec

Sounds like the battery life sucks.

5 Dec

We've had this car less than 6 months, very little mileage and the battery has gone dead twice.

29 Nov

but I'm expecting to replace it maybe as soon as year 3, maybe it will go 4 or more but OEM batteries and OEM tires tend to not be the very best.

28 Nov

I would advise anyone interested in buying to 2020 Camry to be aware of the battery drain issues.

2 Oct

The car is in the shop again for battery drain issues.

30 Sep

Battery problems.

23 Sep

Battery problems!!!

20 Sep

Now reading about battery issue that Toyota refuses to solve.

13 Mar

Toyota took care of the previous issue with the 2018 - 2020 in regards to the CVT transmission issues.

15 Feb

The CVT transmission removes all the noise of the shifting gears of other models.

13 Jan

The rough shifts are mostly during acceleration and deceleration at low speeds and especially when I'm reducing the speed slowly.

10 Jan

Transmission doesn't know what gear it wants to be in and shutters during some gear changes.

27 Dec

Now let’s talk about the transmission.

29 Nov

but at some speeds there is some throttle lag and I've assumed that is again transmission related, again new it before purchasing.

30 Sep

Transmission dose not shift correctly.

21 Jul

If you dont mind the noticeable hiccups in the transmission, then the car would be fine for everyday driving,

22 Nov

I driven a dozen or so rentals with CVT transmissions and I never liked how during an acceleration, it always felt like the engine was always trying to catch-up with the transmission, until finally it did.

25 Jul

Paddle and sports e-tronic shifter features for a CVT Transmission - The downshifts feel glorious and helps a lot on the downhills. 3.

26 Dec

Currently getting "parking break malfunction" alert EVERY TIME I DRIVE ANYWHERE, which also means brake hold (which I don't really use) and cruise control are down.

We had left the car in our driveway undriven for 24 hours and when we went out to start the car it said "Smart key malfunction" and then it totally died.

apparently there is a software malfunction with it, and it drains your battery even with the feature turned off.

18 Dec

Finally, constant warnings: "Secondary breaking/collision/LDA malfunction (check engine)" warning lights go on for a few days and then go off on their own.

2 Jul

I wont go into too much detail about the infotainment system, which is the other glaring failure in this car, at least in its current iteration.

27 Dec

I can choose to have navigation on the right, phone / projection on the bottom left, and audio info on the top left.

18 Oct

Scout GPS is useless without cellphone coverage.

22 Jul

After using it for a while I removed the app from my phone and bought a garmin system.

2 Jun

I also live in a rural area and everything depends on data which I dont get well or at all in certain area deeming the navigation inoperable when it even works at all.

22 Feb

The Hybrid unit cannot be ordered with nav, also the app entune3.0 does not work with iPhoneX.

1 Jan

The biggest disappointment is the navigation/infotainment system.

Tire noise is terribly loud (while there isn't much wind noise, the sound of the tires rolling is overpowering).

11 Jul

The only downside is that the vehicle sounds at all times like multiple pieces are loose on the interior… there are rattles in the cabin from every direction that cannot seem to be found or fixed.

7 Jul

Cons: Quirky 8 Speed transmission has trouble finding gear at slow speeds, minor occasional lurch in first gear from stop, noisy engine permeates cabin in city driving, RAV4 not quite as nice as 2018 and under years.

25 Jun

There is quite a bit of road noise

We hear whistling noises at highway speeds, the engine is much noisier then previous generation and the transmission is also not as enjoyable.

The vehicle has left my wife stranded twice when it would not start due to a dead battery.

Battery dead after not driving for 10 hour work shift.

Called dealer service department, Ben told me they just found out about a software upgrade last week that is supposed to stop the battery drain.

5 Oct

Battery was dead today after not driving it for 1 day.

Battery died after 6 months.

Mine is an XLE, had it for only a month and battery has died twice.

Cons: Fuel tank issue is annoying.

11 Mar

The fuel tank only fills 3/4 of the way.

22 Feb

I can only get about 9 to 10 gallons max into the gas tank when empty and Toyota won't do anything about it.

The bad: Don't Toyota's PR campaign fool you the gas tank design is seriously flawed and has not been fixed in the 18 months this vehicle has been on the market.

7 Sep

Probably, the only difference between the 2019 and 2020 defective fuel tank models is that the fuel level indicator is capable of showing a full tank

6 Sep

I am giving this a one star because I think it is underhanded and possibly illegal to have a known defect (gas tank/performance) and sell these cars without fixing it or disclosing it.

5 Sep

Only issue is the gas tank.

4 Sep

However, they gas tank only fills up 10 gallons which is much less than the manufacture states it should fill resulting in less total mileage.

22 Aug

The 2021's engine shutdown feature when you stop sounded like the engine had bad motor mounts, if it was my car I'd be taking it to the dealer.

7 Jul

Cons: Quirky 8 Speed transmission has trouble finding gear at slow speeds, minor occasional lurch in first gear from stop, noisy engine permeates cabin in city driving, RAV4 not quite as nice as 2018 and under years.

25 Jun

The engine is very loud, a common Toyota thing, so it feels pretty rugged when driving which can be good and bad.

2 Jun

extremely uncomfortable interior, loud, terribly sounding engine, no headroom, hard, small seat cushions.

15 May

We hear whistling noises at highway speeds, the engine is much noisier then previous generation and the transmission is also not as enjoyable.

22 Apr

Engine noise is awful.

20 Apr

Engine sounds like a wheat thrasher about to explode under hard acceleration.

3 Apr

That’s amazing for it being a gasoline engine and not a hybrid, which we tend to stay away from for now until that technology is a little more perfected.

13 Feb

Engine somewhat underpowered from stop,

30 Dec

On a positive note I drove another 120 miles before the dashboard indicated the engine has stopped.

12 Jan

I have owned this car for a year and weeks after buying it learned that I could not fill the 14.5 gallon tank as there is a design failure with the gas tank sensor.

17 Nov

Guess Toyota is going down hill - new Rav4 and the auto headlights stopped working and needed to be replaced then the drivers door lock failed and needed to be replaced.

19 Oct

I have bought used cars, cars that were just junk and I have bought new cars and most of them have let me down and failed prematurely.

23 Sep

Had the vehicle for 2 weeks now, drove mostly in city and gave rest for 1 day, the car won’t start, it says smart key malfunction, I changed the key fob battery and still the same issue, felt crazy it happened on the brand new car.

28 Jul

but has no fix or plans to recall, sounds like they don’t have any intention of coming up with a fix for it.

7 Jul

but it was showing a “key malfunction” error and telling me to press the break and turn on the car.

4 Jun

You need to recall these vehicles and fix problems.

20 Jan

While driving on the highway in a light snow storm all of the sensors failed due to being covered in snow- the exact safety features we liked because of being safer in Minnesota weather.

Having done extensive research on cars all my life, and having owned many, this latest purchase to replace the Prius Prime Advanced that I loved had to be a tech stunner.

11 Feb

Does not the get gas mileage my Prius did be still better than other SUV's.

11 Feb

- Brakes: Like the Prius, energy is recaptured giving less pad wear and better MPG.

1 Jul

A vehicle this expensive should have a much better sound system; at least a 3.5 mm plug.

6 Mar

Excellent MPG and with the plug in if you drive less than 42 miles a day you only have tor buy gas once a year to keep it fresh.

16 Feb

can't find lights, plug in connections almost everything.

4 May

If you have an iPhone and want to plug it in for CarPlay, that's a much better experience.

Horrible noise on cold starts.

10 Jan

Bought this Prime XSE right off showroom floor with a substantial premium (dealer mark up) and on the first drive almost returned it, reasons: rattles and noises caused by road imperfections.

(AC amplifier bad due to driver seat heater).

4 Mar

The loss in efficiency I have seen is when I have to accelerate hard at traffic lights or when the car is used for very short drives and the engine has to heat up lowering mileage (especially in freezing temperature).

30 Dec

There are no side mirror defrosters and the dash defrost that has a vent aimed toward the side window is useless for defrosting the driver side window - it blows toward it

14 Aug

So far the only disappointments are the inside air vents could be bigger for better air flow, and they need to fix their act up re color choices and options which vary dramatically from model to model.

This is a better version of regular Prius with better energy efficient features.

28 Jan

the 21 Prius Prime is a comfortable, roomy car with some benefits&major drawbacks that should take it off your shopping list.

23 May

The main disadvantage of the Prius is a very uncofortable (hard) back seat, and not very much in the way of advanced electronics.

11 Mar

The Prius Prime is about the equivalent of driving an I phone!

11 Jun

A decidedly heavy feel for the size of the car, probably even more so with the plug-in battery pack,

the plug-in hybrid option is saving me hundreds of dollars a month in gas - currently I'm getting over 200mgp!

28 Mar

Great gas mileage since it Is a plug in hybrid.

7 Dec

The plug in works easily and gives a good 26 miles on electric only power.

15 Dec

but c'mon -- it's positioned too far below the windshield and to far from the driver for safe driving.

2 May

Lack of rear wiper because of concave window sucks in snow.

15 Dec

In a snow storm last week, the lack of a rear wiper was a bother, and the rear window heater couldn't melt the snow -- it kept shutting off every 4 minutes, too!

25 Oct

A couple of other minor drawbacks: there is no ventilation to the back seats and there is no Homelink garage door opener on the XLE - you have to go up to a Limited to get that.

27 Sep

The electric motor is plenty powerful and I haven’t run out of battery yet while driving around home.

24 Aug

Trunk is a bit small due to extra space needed for larger battery, that's the only drawback I've found so far.

2 Jul

The only way this car could be better is if they added more EV miles each charge (55 miles would be ideal), and if the gas engine provided more pick up or power, after the EV battery was discharged.

10 Feb

Wish it had 40 miles battery

11 Mar

Due to the large battery there is no room for grocery bags or any storage so the Prius Prime is useless for shopping.

A vehicle this expensive should have a much better sound system; at least a 3.5 mm plug.

8 Oct

Using the plug in car monitoring system Bouncie, using the car computer, and using the manual method of figuring out mpg, along with gas needed to fill up, I have no issues with the gas tank.

Great vehicle, awesome responsiveness, and overall features. My only issue is the gas tank (inconsistent refueling) and the placement of interior lights (or maybe brightness is an issue)

I almost passed this up due to the reported problems with the gas tank and lack of being able to fill it up, so far I have not had that issue and after 2500 miles I think I would have experienced it by now.

14 Jun

When at a stop sign, the car growl and make loud noises.

23 May

The only two negatives I’ve noticed is the interior is prone to stains that are difficult to remove and road noise is still a little noisy.

27 Apr

but road and engine noise suppression is slightly worse.

16 Jan

They said the seatbelt noise goes off in the back if no body is in the seat and is extra loud.

15 Jan

I bought a 2020 Toyota Corolla and after driving it for a few days I realized the noise level was getting increaseingly worse especially while driving of pavement roads.

7 Jan

Almost like a buzzing noise.

6 May

Had a Ford Fiesta 2013 transmission absolutely garbage.

17 Apr

Knee-well lighting controls are almost inaccessible, CVT trans on 1.8L model performs poorly below 1000 RPM,

22 Feb

Problems already with transmission hard shift.

25 Oct

Sadly, Nissan is having serious problems with the transmission forcing me to leave them behind.

14 Oct

I tried shifting into park and then back again and still nothing happened all the lights and buzzers on the dashboard were going off.

26 Aug

Transmission issues, speaker issues, touchscreen issues, AC issues, flooding issues due to the AC and many other issues.

18 May

Recommendations for Toyota: use a more robust material for the cushion above the odo and re-tune the transmission shifts to feel more natural.

27 Apr

Acceleration is better too due to the ability of the continuously variable transmission to multiply torque.

23 Apr

While I am less than enamored with CVT transmissions, it is true that Aisin makes them for Toyota.

25 Mar

I chose the manual because the automatic is a CVT trans and I didn't like the way it drove.

14 Oct

My foot was on the break I turn the wheel and went to put my foot on the gas to turn left and the car died.

18 Sep

The issue is with brake pedal spring which Toyota is not ready to fix.

23 Jun

A few years ago I suddenly lost my brakes when my car developed a major leak in the lines.

14 Jun

Here are the Cons 1) The car makes a loud noise when you are on the break paddle for a long period of time.

17 Dec

Car vibrates when it’s on a complete stop while pressing on the brakes.

3 Nov

Included items: Car play, cloth two tone manual seats, audio display screen, blue tooth, spare tire with cheap jack, collision avoidance, lane avoidance, over complicated cruise control, electronic parking brake,disk brakes, power windows.

9 Oct

I also noticed the thumping from the rear brakes occasionally on hard stops,

6 Aug

Negative: Road Noise, thump noise from the back when brake (gets annoying) Updated days after driving more: My wife and I didn’t notice on the test drive as it normally is a short test drive

20 Apr

Negatives: road noise, touch screen is slow and should be angled more to the driver; automatic parking break release is abrupt or jerky—you know when it has released!

23 May

Battery and spare tire are easy to access which is a major plus- some new cars they are not easy to find/use which is a problem in a breakdown.

16 Jan

After a long battle about the tire replacement Toyota finally agreed to replace blown out tire after initially wanting to charge me for replacing the tire that literally ripped off the rim.

15 Jan

I was told it's a new car sound and the tires are new therefore the noise level would be louder.

3 Nov

Included items: Car play, cloth two tone manual seats, audio display screen, blue tooth, spare tire with cheap jack, collision avoidance, lane avoidance, over complicated cruise control, electronic parking brake,disk brakes, power windows.

28 Oct

Tires are small, Tiny trunk

29 Oct

Radio controls are not easy to figure out, it can be done

21 Sep

The radio I have a Android you have to download and in Entune 3.0 app to get everything working.

8 Aug

Also hate the fact that the radio system (entune) and the internet of the car are limited to just a couple of months and then you also have to start paying to use it.

After nearly a decade of owning 2 different Prius models, I am very happy to say that that our new 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE is a welcome addition to our family.

9 May

Wish list would be plug in vs all EV Highlander!!

2 Apr

The 4 cylinder engine makes more noise than the 6 cylinder, at first it was annoying

2 Mar

Several pro reviews comment on the noisy, unrefined 4 cylinder engine when the vehicle is pushed hard.

5 Dec

Not much to commend..very loud 4cyl, extreme road noise, cheap interior, sub-par radio and no more pop up back window.

5 Dec

Toyota pulled a fast one and downgraded with cheap interior plastics, intrusive road noise and extremely loud 4cyl engine.

16 Jun

But everything else annoy the car outweighs that momentary noise.

7 May

The only negative I have is the engine is a little noisy.

2 Apr

My biggest pet peeve and complaint is the range and gas tank size, they specify a 17.1 gallon gas tank which if the mileage is correct would give you a range of around 600 miles.

30 Jul

The lane assist can be annoying since it reads anything that might be a painted lane, so I just turn it off in cruise control, gas tank has to be nursed when filling for the last couple gallons, wants to turn off.

10 May

We did have the gas tank issue as others have talked about with the Rav4 and will keep an eye on this as we did fill up and it clicked off early for a 17.1 gallon tank.

9 May

** One concern though is when I fill the gas tank it shut off at 11 gallons

22 Sep

Although this one is a four-cylinder, and the pep is not quite what a six cylinder used to be, it’s still fine and a small trade off considering the gas mileage.

The only negative I have is the engine is a little noisy.

Does not the get gas mileage my Prius did be still better than other SUV's.

11 Feb

- Brakes: Like the Prius, energy is recaptured giving less pad wear and better MPG.

15 May

Other than the size, the Prius was a great car for my wife and she loved it.

1 Jul

A vehicle this expensive should have a much better sound system; at least a 3.5 mm plug.

16 Feb

can't find lights, plug in connections almost everything.

4 May

If you have an iPhone and want to plug it in for CarPlay, that's a much better experience.

10 Jul

Cons: Fuel tank issue is annoying.

11 Mar

The fuel tank only fills 3/4 of the way.

22 Feb

I can only get about 9 to 10 gallons max into the gas tank when empty and Toyota won't do anything about it.

22 Feb

I also have the gas tank issue and can only put 9-10 gallons in the tank and Toyota will not do anything about it.

20 Feb

In addition this vehicle has another fuel related issue: The gas tank cannot be filled to capacity, causing a decrease in the advertised range of the vehicles.

12 Jan

I have owned this car for a year and weeks after buying it learned that I could not fill the 14.5 gallon tank as there is a design failure with the gas tank sensor.

27 Nov

The gas tank issues and dying battery issues are really serious lapses on the part of Toyota.

28 Oct

Toyota has no fix in sight for the fuel tank issue either.

25 Sep

The bad: Don't Toyota's PR campaign fool you the gas tank design is seriously flawed and has not been fixed in the 18 months this vehicle has been on the market.

7 Sep

Probably, the only difference between the 2019 and 2020 defective fuel tank models is that the fuel level indicator is capable of showing a full tank

15 Aug

Also, to many rattle noises.

11 Jul

The only downside is that the vehicle sounds at all times like multiple pieces are loose on the interior… there are rattles in the cabin from every direction that cannot seem to be found or fixed.

20 Mar

The car has a lot of wind related noise at highway speeds and fabric seats are not comfortable.

22 Feb

Also, this thing is noisy.

22 Feb

And then there is the road noise.

10 Jan

Bought this Prime XSE right off showroom floor with a substantial premium (dealer mark up) and on the first drive almost returned it, reasons: rattles and noises caused by road imperfections.

30 Dec

Only other issue is a fan noise when the heater starts up.

8 Dec

Car is a little noise inside, Seats are a little uncomfortable for long ride.

5 Dec

The road noise inside the car is annoying, especially when you are trying to have a conversation with someone in the back.

27 Nov

The random noises and poor seat comfort are just plain aggravating and long term irritants.

20 Mar

highway use.. Come one weekend, the car is sitting in the garage with a dead battery, unable to start or power on any electronics.. Toyota has a TSB pointing to updating the software of the DCM module.

6 Dec

but something is draining the battery.

27 Oct

The vehicle has left my wife stranded twice when it would not start due to a dead battery.

16 Oct

Battery dead after not driving for 10 hour work shift.

13 Oct

Called dealer service department, Ben told me they just found out about a software upgrade last week that is supposed to stop the battery drain.

5 Oct

Battery was dead today after not driving it for 1 day.

26 Sep

Battery died after 6 months.

25 Sep

Mine is an XLE, had it for only a month and battery has died twice.

8 Jul

There are some things to improve like a full-digital instrument cluster, a tachometer (hybrid), oil temp and voltage readings, hood-opening hydraulic struts, illuminated windows and mirror

30 Dec

Only other issue is a fan noise when the heater starts up.

6 Dec

All the lights, radio, defroster everything is turned off before we shut the car off,

27 Jun

Driver's side mirror folds in with blower at car wash. Not passenger side.

25 May

We have to set the weather settings to farenheit multiple times a day if we do not want to see the temperature in Celsius. 3.

13 May

(AC amplifier bad due to driver seat heater).

19 Mar

As soon as the weather approached spring temperatures, mileage went up to 39mpg in city driving.

4 Mar

The loss in efficiency I have seen is when I have to accelerate hard at traffic lights or when the car is used for very short drives and the engine has to heat up lowering mileage (especially in freezing temperature).

30 Dec

There are no side mirror defrosters and the dash defrost that has a vent aimed toward the side window is useless for defrosting the driver side window - it blows toward it

6 Dec

All the lights, radio, defroster everything is turned off before we shut the car off,

26 May

Engine: So loud that I really need to volume up the radio so I don't get stress with the noise.

25 May

The settings on the radio will not hold.

2 Feb

The radio sound is hard to hear when you are on a highway.

16 Jan

and there is no satellite radio option.

5 Dec

Loved having a tuning knob on the radio which our Honda CRV lacks.

27 Aug

After getting the correct radio after two tries they install new radio and it also has same problem.

18 Jul

The only thing I would change is the radio system to difficult to use.
