    Another year, 213k miles, and the battery pack is still holding steady. My thermos water pump died two weeks back though. I need to hit up a pull-a-part and snag a replacement next time I'm near one. It doesn't really seem to be here nor there in terms of how it's affecting mileage but the car won't pass inspection with it failing.

    Yep. Anything that sets a "P" code or illuminates CEL is an automatic emissions fail.

    Glad to hear the battery is still going! :)

    Another year down and some more miles. Currently sitting at 238k and no issues... with the battery at least. I had to tear down my son's '04 as he over heated it and warped the head. And last week he spun it off the road. It waits for me to get some parts from pull a part to get the bumper clip sorted out. So far I still love the reliability of the Prius. Oh, and we added an 09 Venza to the fleet as the price was right.

    Hi Matthew:

    It is incredible that that repaired pack with just a little work has provided you with so many trouble free miles.
