I just did my first oil change and I followed the rest of the instructions in the scheduled maintenance guide for normal operation: rotated the tires, inspected brake linings, etc. I don't normally drive in desert or dirt roads (mostly freeway and heavy Southern California rush hour traffic), but I also inspected the items listed in the "Additional Maintenence Items for Special Operating Conditions", such as the ball joints, drive shaft boots, engine air
filter, and steering linkage/boots. Everything looked good. The one
item I left out was "Tighten nuts and bolts on chassis".

Here's a question for my fellow Prii DIYers: has anyone done this, and if so,
where can I get information on location and torque settings for the
chassis nuts and bolts?

(This is for an '06 Seaside Pearl Pkg3,.)

If you want to go as far as properly torquing the bolts, you might want to get the repair manual.

I have never checked bolts on any car I've owned. When I hear rattles, I check out where it is coming from. I really doubt dealers actually do this. If you want to check your bolts, just look around and check that any bolt you see and find are not loose.
