2002 Toyota PRIUS Steering problems & defects.

Toyota PRIUS Steering problems : 40.

Just Wanted To Alert You That There May Be A Potential Defect With The Torque Sensor, Which Affects The Power Steering. I Recently Encountered This In My 2002 toyota prius With 43,000+ Miles On The Vehicle.*ak Basically, There Are No Preceding Symptoms Before The Power Steering Fails. Upon Failure, The prius Central Color Touchscreen Lcd Display Shows Three Icons, With The “ps” Icon In Red. You Will Also See An Exclamation Point Icon Lit On The Green Lcd Display Next To The Speedometer. At Which Point, You Have No Power Steering And The Car Will Be Hard To Steer. When This Occurs, There May Be A Temporary Fix, Which Worked For Me. Pull Over To A Safe Area And Turn Off The Car. Wait 30 Seconds, And Then Turn On The Car. You Have Effectively Rebooted The prius Computer System With The Torque Sensor, And The Power Steering Should Return For The Time Being. The Vehicle Should Be Taken To The Nearest Official toyota Service Shop (aka Dealership) And Have Them Run A Diagnostic Check. They Should See Code “c1513 Torque Sensor Abnormal” In The prius‘ Memory Banks. Then Sit Down For The Price Tag: $3159 – $4,160 To Replace The Entire Power Steering Rack, Since The Sensor Is Integrated In The Rack Itself. This Includes The Labor Of About $261. It Is Recommended Not To Accept Any “cost Coverage Offer” From The Service Shop Until You Call The toyota Consumer Support Line At 1-800-331-4331. Make Sure You Have A Service Quote From The Shop, Then Call The Support Line And Complain. The Support Line Will Assign You A case Worker And Provide A Case Number. They Will Contact The Shop And Make Arrangements To Repair The Vehicle. toyota Covered The Cost Of The Part 100% For Me, And All I Had To Do Was Pay For The Labor Since My Car Was Out Of Warranty Per The 36,000 Bumper-to-bumper Coverage. In Conclusion, I Am Very Happy On How toyota Handled The Power Steering Issue. This Is To Inform Other 2000-2003 prius Owners If They Encounter A Similar Problem.

2002 toyota prius Steering Rack Failure. Approximately 2 Weeks Ago The Steering In My prius Became Difficult To Turn And Pulsated When Turning. The toyota Dealer, Where I Had Purchased The Vehicle, Inspected The Car And Informed Me That The Steering Rack Was Failing And Needed To Be Replaced At A Cost Of $3,000. After Researching This On The Internet I Found That This Is A Problem Inherent To These 1st Generation prius Models. I Contacted toyota Customer Service And Opened A Case To See If toyota Would Offer Any Assistance In The Repair Of My Car. Online At Owner Forums Regarding This Problem There Were Many Instances Where toyota Would Repair The Vehicle At No Cost To The Owner Or At Least Offer Some Assistance With The Cost. I Was Refused By toyota With Any Help Of Any Kind. I Believe That Since toyota Was Aware Of This Defect During The 2001- 2003 Model Run And Changed The Steering Rack For The 2004 Redesign To Eliminate This Problem That There Should Be A Recall To Address This Matter. I Base This On The Volume Of Cars Experiencing This Along With The Fact That toyota Had A Special Service Campaign In Place At One Point That Repaired These Affected Vehicles When Customers Experienced This Problem. toyota Is No Longer Running This Repair Campaign. *tr

I Have A 2002 toyota prius With 140k Miles On It. The Steering Wheel Started To Shake Violently Last Fall When I Put The Car In Reverse. It Now Does This At Low Speeds, Particularly Around Corners And Is Becoming An Increasing Problem At Higher Speeds. The Power Steering Cut Out On The Freeway At 70 Miles Per Hour Last Week. That Convinced Me I Need To Get A New Car. I Tried To Trade It In At A Local toyota Dealer Last Summer And Couldn’t Understand Why They Wouldn’t Give Me More Than $2.5k For It As I Had Paid $15k For It 2.5 Years Earlier. Admittedly, I Had Been T-boned And A Lot Of Work Had Been Done On The Car, But My Dealer Had It Fixed It To Where You Wouldn’t Know It Was In An Accident Unless It Was Pointed Out. I Researched The Problems Online And Found This Is A Well -known Design Problem With The Cars Steering Rack. I Can’t Sell It To Anyone As Is. I’m Stuck With Having To Do A $3k Repair To A Car That’s Worth Less Than That To Its Dealership. It Scares Me To Drive It. They Only Made 26k Of These Cars. Does Every One Have This Problem? I Spoke With toyota And They Said They Did Offer An Extended Warranty Repair On This, But Since My Car Had >100k, The Burden Would Be Mine. They Should Be Willing To Resolve This Design Flaw. What Is My Recourse? Again, I Am Afraid To Drive It As I Don
