Given how new the Prius V's are, I doubt that many/any forum members have driven enough miles for the first oil change. I've read many posts concerning the "oil change access panel" and the problems Gen III owners have had with the panel cracking or breaking at the 'hinge,' but I don't know if the Prius V has the same panel underneath. Has anyone who owns both a Prius V and a regular Gen III Prius taken a close enough look to tell? My other 'unknown' concerns ramps. I haven't taken a look underneath my Prius V because I don't own ramps which will work with this vehicle; mine do not have extenders. Again, due to how new the V is, I doubt that many forum members have tried their V's on ramps to look at the undersides, but the clearance of the V's should be virtually the same as a regular Gen III Prius. What brand of ramps have worked for the Gen III regular Prius and where were they sold? (I live in Southern California) Related to the ramp issue, can the oil/filter change in a Prius be accomplished while only the front end is elevated on ramps? Every other Toyota I've owned (many!) needed to be reasonably level for an oil change, but driving the front end up ramps precludes being level - unless the vehicle's back end is raised to the same height with a floor jack utilizing the single jack point. Need some input from members who have changed their oil using ramps!!
