The 04/05 Prius does not need the scanner to do maintenance until 100K where the coolant gets replaced. If during the inspections, something comes up that needs attention, such as brakes, then the scanner might be needed.
I didn't think the classic needed any maintenance that required the scanner until 30K, where the coolant needs changing.

All Toyota dealers are supposed to have Prius technicians, and the scan tool. Now whether the Prius technician is experienced enough, or understands the Prius in a real-world environment to do the job is another matter. There's a lot of MCSEs (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineers) out there, but that doesn't really mean they can actually install, maintain and administer a Windows server, let alone fix problems. They may have just been good test takers.
