    Hello - Can anyone recommend a good independent Prius mechanic preferably in the Northern Virginia are, but will consider DC and Maryland as well? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Well you already pointed out my location perception was wrong, but you can try MAC's (not in NoVA). I see that MAC's is still listed as a Dorman hybrid battery installer (had been Re-Involt).

    Mac's Service Center - expert auto repair - Ashland, VA 23005

    Miller Toyota in Manassas gets some good marks and apparently takes Costco discount.

    There is a hybrid shop in MD closer to B'more. Shows up in some hybrid repair shops lists. Maybe these guys below (see MD shops):

    Dorman Hybrid Drive Batteries - Installers

    Our area seems to have very few hybrid shops...not sure why as we are one big hybrid market.

    It's been a long time since last post (2014) but can't seem to find any updated recommendations. I'm looking at possible major work on my 2007 gen II Prius, like I may have blown engine bearings. Any updates on good, honest, affordable independent Prius mechanics in the Northern Virginia area? I see Steven's garage and MAC's ( 'bout 90 miles away) but are there any other's/updates?

    No new news here sorry.
    Not hearing too much from DMV Prius owners re: part failures, I guess they are all doing well.
    Hillmuth in MD was originally on the certified hybrid service list, and they still say hybrid service.
    I don't know if there are specific Hillmuth locations where they are more experienced with hybrids
