2010-2014 Prius Excessive Oil Consumption on 2ZR-FXE Engine

    2013 Prius. I got an oil change at 68,500. Went in at 73k and they said it was completely dry. My husband asked them if he could keep a sample of the oil to perform a test to check for engine damage and they said there wasn't even enough oil in there to take a sample... The service guys at Toyota didn't even know about the problem. I am going to tell them after reading this thread.

    Just called the 1-800 number for Toyota and opened a case. Everyone else should do this too! Ridiculous that they've had this problem before with other model cars and aren't trying to fix it yet with the prius. They did offer a warranty enhancement for the other models, so hopefully if enough people complain, they'll do that with the prius.

    Don't count on it. It took a lawsuit for Toyota to extend the warranty last time.

    I agree though that it's still a good idea to call and open up a ticket -- if for no other reason than to have it documented.

    2010 Prius owner here. The Prius is burning 7.5qts between 5000mi oil changes.

    Do we need to start a class action lawsuit against Toyota?

    I'm concerned that the Camry oil consumption warranty extension only went to 150K miles. My Prius is approaching that now. Should I stop driving it regularly?

    Also, have people tried different oil types and viscosities to see if it helps?
