Hybrid Car – More Fun with Less Gas

When you push your prius while it's in neutral, does it make clicking sounds?

I just have my front brake serviced and noticed the MPG went down a lot and requires me to step on accelerator more. So, I set it to neutral and pushed it, I hear some sorta clicking sounds from the front. Is this normal?

Clicking front... 2 usual causes (irrelevant of prius or not):
* you get a long screw/nail/bolt/whatever metal object lost on road in
a tire, but instead of piercing it, it was included in the tire itself.
* a ball or cylinder of the ball-bearing is dead.

For former, visual & tactile inspection of each tire, full 360°.

For later, raise the vehicle and get the wheel on manual rotation (by
hand), and listen.
Might also detect brake behing applied to the wheel or warped disc.
