The main problem many customers our having with the Prius is related to the battery life. In a lot of cases the Prius batteries are only lasting 150,000 miles or only between 8 - 10 years. The Toyota Prius is a great car, but if you are ever in need of the batteries to be replaced, you have a big problem. Let us give you your options and provide you with some help.

When you are not in the warranty period then you will have to pay a high price for your hybrid batteries. Some used Prius battery packs are offered on websites which will cost around a $1000. However, this can be risky. You should be looking for other dealers that can give you high quality hybrid batteries at a good price. This can be hard to find because a lot of dealers are still charging outrageous prices for new hybrid batteries.

The Toyota Prius battery cost has come down recently. Earlier they were priced at around $3000. When you look around you will be able to find them for approximately $2300. These quoted prices of the Toyota Prius battery cost are outrageous and are not affordable for the typical Prius owner.

Another quick and cheaper option to reduce your Toyota Prius battery cost is to buy a rebuilt battery from other dealers other than Toyota. This will save both your time and money. You can even find lots of people who are ready to sell Toyota Prius rebuilt batteries online. This is still a little risky but a lot cheaper than paying your money to Toyota to fix what should of never broke in the first place.

I myself decided to use the lowest cost option. I have found a guide online which you can use for rebuilding your battery yourself. I didn't want to rebuild the battery myself at first so I talked to my local mechanic shop and they said if I give them the guide they will look it ocher and rebuild the battery for me at shop rates.
