We have an 06 Prius. We bought it used with 7k miles. It just ran out of warranty in July.

We also bought it high when gas was spendy, so it's resale value dropped almost $8k in the last year.

The steering is doing the same issue as discussed on these posts at 32k miles.

Toyota has refused to pay for it. The dealer is so embarrassed, they offered to pick up half of it. It's a $1600 repair, $800 to me.

We told them as soon as they fix it, they can buy it. The $860 our cost on this accommodates 10,000 miles of driving at 25mpg How can that pencil?

I think it's time to start Tweeting this issue, as I will not own a Prius (or a toyota) for a LONG time!
