Editor's Overview

As the largest model in Toyota’s extensive line of Prius hybrids, the 2014 Prius V is a fuel-efficient alternative to compact SUVs. It offers a surprising amount of cargo space, useful versatility and, as would be expected, very impressive fuel economy of 44 mpg city, 40 mpg highway and 42 mpg combined.

Excellent gas mileage in a car that will comfortably seat 4-5 adults.

Excellent gas mileage with room for 5 and good luggage space and is a comfortable highway car. With 66k miles we have had no repairs other than suggested maintenance. Will cruise at 75 mph easily and is good in crosswinds. As I am 6'2" and my wife is barely 5' it easily accommodates us both comfortably.

The 3rd Prius I've owned and still lovin it.

very reliable! This is my 3rd Prius and I love it. I do miss a few features I had in my old one., and I find the navigation system to be unnecessarily difficult to use, so my phone has taken over that job. Love the MPG's and it's the perfect size for my active family of four.

Handicap accessible auto car.

It suits my needs as a disabled person--room for folded wheelchair. Really economical after 20 years of a minivan. Does not have auto headlights. Could use a little more power the climbing 6% upgrade. Does not tow. . Would rather have a dark past job--to be seen in fog,

Safety Recalls (3)

Hybrid Propulsion System Oct 3, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 3, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V684000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2010-2014 Toyota Prius and 2012-2014 Toyota Prius V vehicles. Excessive voltage in the Intelligent Power Module (IPM) within the inverter may cause the hybrid system to shut down, causing the vehicle to stall while being driven.
Consequence:
If the hybrid system shuts down unexpectedly, it can increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the motor/generator control electronic control unit (ECU) and the hybrid control ECU as necessary, free of charge. Interim notification letters were mailed on November 6, 2018. Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota's number for this recall is J0V. Note: The software updates in this recall are needed even if the vehicle had the software previously updated under recalls 14V-053 or 15V-449.
Hybrid Propulsion System > Inverter Jul 14, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 14, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V449000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Prius V vehicles manufactured August 22, 2011, to June 30, 2014. A component within the hybrid inverter assembly may overheat, causing the hybrid system to reduce output power allowing the vehicle to only drive a short distance. In some circumstances, the hybrid system may shut down causing the vehicle to stop while being driven.
Consequence:
The vehicle may enter a fail-safe/limp-home mode that limits the drivability of the vehicle. The hybrid system could also shut down completely resulting in a vehicle stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the motor/generator control electronic control unti (ECU) and the hybrid control ECU, free of charge. The recall began on July 30, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371.
Air Bags Jan 15, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Jan 15, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V013000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Toyota Prius V vehicles manufactured November 7, 2013, to January 7, 2015. The occupant classification system (OCS) that activates or deactivates the passenger seat air bag system may be improperly calibrated. As a result, the passenger air bag may not deploy in a vehicle crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
Consequence:
If the air bag does not deploy as intended, there is an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will re-calibrate of the OCS system, free of charge. The recall began February 12, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.
