Customer Question

2006 Prius. Approx. 130K miles. No prior issues AT ALL.
There is a beep. The large triangle warning light comes on. Then on the "screen" an icon that appears to be for something too hot comes on. If I keep driving the car starts missing (I call it stutters), but stops in a few minutes. Any ideas? How much could I expect to be paying for repairs?

Thank you for allowing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. I will have to ask you a few questions so that I can get a better understanding as to what may be going on with your Prius.

Did the repair shop at least tell you what codes were stored in the computer?
