Hello' everyone ,
my beloved 2008 Prius at times shows this ( to me strange) behavior):
1) When I start the car from cold, I let the ICE run for a while and then I am off driving...
2) At the red traffic light or at Stop sign, the ICE will switch off....GREAT
3) When driving slowly in traffic, stop and go situation, it goes electric , the ICE will come on when the power is down...all is TERRIFIC
4) Then under the same circumstances the ICE will just stay idle....and I worry and get depressed
5) Then I stop , turn all off, start again and all goes back to being GREAT and TERRIFIC and I am all happy again.
I have noticed this only a few days ago after owning and driving the car for 3 years and just don't know wether it has been doing it before. The fuel consumption seems the same...I am very confused.
Could please someone enlighten me about it.
Many thanks
Baxarn.
