    Obviously the drive mode changes the throttle response in the Prius Prime, but after watching some other videos about sports cars and how the drive modes change the exhaust tones, I was curious about the Prius Prime, so I decided to see for myself.

    I'm still trying to find out what people like to see for YouTube videos regarding the Prius Prime, so I decided to try making it a little entertaining at the same time.

    Nice video. Is it possible to do a video on how to do the Air Conditioner filter replacement or the cabin filter replacement. I saw in the book that it is located in a crazy spot i.e., underneath the seat....

    Hey Sid, I'll take a look into that tomorrow, if I don't change it, I'll at least try getting a video of how one would attempt to getting at it.

    The past two services the Toyota dealer told me I would be needing a new one soon, and my Prime is approaching 25,000 miles so it'd be good to know how difficult it is before I decide whether or not I want to tackle it myself or have the dealer do it.

    Hey Sid, just created a new thread and posted a video about this, thanks for the idea, it was good that I checked mine too, it was getting pretty dirty, I'm going to get a new one now.
