    The Gen 1 Prius forum is at Generation 1 Prius Discussion | PriusChat

    The navigation path from the main page is:
    "Gen 2 (2004-2009) Toyota Prius Forums -> "Gen 2 Prius Main Forum" -> "Generation 1 Prius Discussion"

    No new user would look for the Gen 1 forum there!

    I suggest a move to:
    "PriusChat Forums" -> "Gen 1 Prius (2001-2003)" much like the PiP forums but much less traffic.

    Users were certainly confused here. 2001 with no heat | PriusChat

    I got some forums renamed to include 2017 Prius & future Prime. Paradox was very quick.
    I thought it couldn't hurt to try, at least.

    You don't know my fee, yet :LOL:

    Did you see my post in the Newbie thread? I hope that user does not have a bad head gasket to deal with.

    every time a new prius comes out we get 5 more forums. why the gen 1 can't be moved is beyond my understanding, and as always, there's no explanation.

    it's always been buried in the gen 2 main forum. o/p has the nav path a bit more complicated.
    main forum page, scroll down to gen 2 main forum, click on gen 1 link.
    that's it?

    I guess I was a bit off on the original chronology.

    Up through at least February 21, 2008, there was no Gen 1 forum at all. There didn't have to be, none of the forums were model-specific. It was just Prius Main, Prius Technical, Prius Modifications, and so on.

    Then, by May 15, 2008, the Gen 1 Forum had made its first appearance, and it was a subforum of Prius Main. At that point, it still made sense, because Prius Main was just Prius Main.

    So the thing that must have happened after that was that plain Prius Main was renamed Gen 2 Prius Main, and from that day on the Gen 1 forum has been trapped as a subforum of the wrong generation of car.
