We just bought a Gen III Prius.

Has anyone else noticed, after turning off their vehicle, a very high
pitched tone?  It's not very loud, and if it were any higher pitched,
it would be out of range for my 38 year old ears.


ps - It's not just my imagination, my wife hears it too.  :-)

RTFM. Toyota hears it, too, and that's why they tell you to expect it.

Has anyone else read the manual that comes with that shiny new $5,000

Maybe that person can read it to you.  At bedtime.  With warm cocoa and
your snuggly blankie and favorite stuffed animal.

Wow, thought this group would be a little friendlier, and not act like
a bunch of hostile 14 year olds.

I have three kids, all active in sports, and I work.  What's quicker?
Post a question in an active group, or read through an entire manual?

If you don't like the question, don't respond. Sheesh
