Answer : According to UMW Toyota Motor, the Toyota Prius has a similar service itnerval as a conventional car, in this case, every 10,000km.

i) Service interval for Toyota Prius

* Regular maintenance is required for the conventional mechanical parts ( eg. engine, engine oil, and filter ).

* The Hybrid components ( eg battery, inverter etc ) do not require special servicing. These components will be inspected by trained professionals each time the vehicle is serviced.

ii) Service cost for Toyota Prius
