    On my 2012 Prius V that has every available option, last night while driving a green light showed up on the far right hand side of the dash panel. It looks suspiciously like a snowflake. I cannot find but one reference to it that says it is something called "winter mode." But I cannot find anything at al about it. How did it turn on? How do I turn it off? Temps here have been above 70 degrees for weeks so winter is nowhere close by!

    On our 2012 v Five, the green snowflake-like indicator at right of dash means cruise control is enabled and active.

    went for a walk in my neighborhood this morning.... seen a guy putting water in a hatchback gen 3...... told him it was the HG and he said no way.. these cars are bulletproof.... so then he starts it and it has the death rattle... and the guy says it's bad fuel injectors.....
    I just laughed and walked away......
