"Unplanned Prius Service for Failing Engine Valve Component"
Thanks Puyallup Toyota for getting our 09 Prius in for service within hours of an engine check light showing here at home. Fred, our service rep, and your master technician provided their expected excellent service and we were back on the road after a 2 day shop visit. The problem turned out to be a defective mixing valve in the engine cooling system located in a difficult to reach location on the car. One of the brake light computer controllers was also found to be in partial failure mode, causing one of our back lights to go out.

While the dealership diagnosis and repair were exceptional good, Toyota's equipment should not have failed. The service rep confirmed that the valve and electrical controller failure were not related to anything under the owners control, but was just an unusual parts failure. We purchased a maintenance contract when the car was purchased in 2009, but our mileage exceeded the coverage limit on the contract. We were surprised and disappointed that Toyota did not stand behind their product, offer a service cost discount, or offer to share in the cost of the $700+ repairs. Up to this point, our experience with Toyota has generally been outstanding.
