2007 Toyota Prius 1.5L hybrid from North America
Inverter coolant pump.
Headlight bulb frequently burned out for some reason, every 6 months or so.
Consumes oil. No drips, no burning, no smoke. About 1/2 quart every 1000 miles.
This car is unbelievable. It just works, and keeps on working. I put 107,000 miles on it in about 2.5 years. I replaced the inverter coolant pump which is a common replacement for these cars. I couldn't say anything bad about this car. I sold it with confidence that the next owner will be just as satisfied.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Did you inform the next buyer you added an extra 53 quarts of oil in 2 years?

It's a 12 year old Prius with over 300K miles on it. You think the new owner really cares about how much oil it has used?

We have a 2005 with about 235k on it.
It still has all the original struts.
The only things we have done for it are a CV axle boot replacement, water control valve and brake pads.
It was using some oil at high RPM, but we ran some engine cleaner in it and it seems to have slowed down.
It needs a new valve cover gasket now. It loses oil when revved up.
This is the most trouble free car I have ever seen.
Toyota put some serious mojo in these cars.
