    Most people have been beating the 52mpg combined figures on the Gen 4 so something is wrong.

    At 35mpg, I suspect she’s driving in B mode and not letting the engine shut off.

    The only times I got less than 40mpg on a Prius was on the Gen 2 with the battery on its way out (the last year or two years saw mpg lower to 38-40) and when I drove my Gen 3 in -40 temps (with the entire tank driven in temps no warmer than -20°C) and that got me 38mpg.

    Starting to look that way. But then again, some people do have lives to live. It's just odd to ask a question and then not respond to the answers.

    probably taking a long weekend from the net, plus, p/c was broken for awhile.

    other than the 35mpg, which he is probably figuring wrong, it's mostly tech complaints and the fianance manager.
    most of us have some of those concerns.

    with a 2009, the tech was pretty basic, but still poor. he must have assumed toyota, like other manufacturers, would have figured it out by now.

    Most bluetooth issues have nothing to do with the vehicle itself. different versions of firmware on the vehicle and on the phone make these problems happen. I can tell you there are no updates available for the vehicle at the moment (updates happen from time to time) so that leads me to believe your phone is the issue. I would update it and/or do a factory reset. That is the actual diagnostics procedure to approach your issue.
