Coolant flush for Prius at 100,000mi

Asked by Nov 11, 2016 at 12:11 AM about the 2011 Toyota Prius

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Prius is about to hit 100,000 miles and
the dealership is suggesting two coolant
flushes that will cost $400. Is this a
reasonable price or should i look
elsewhere? Also, is this a mandatory
routine?

One flush ought to do it. Why two? I would only do it if the car is overheating.

Yes, one flush and I would recommend it if it wasn't done yet. But not for $400. Have an independent garage do it for you.

2 FLUSHES BECAUSE YOU HAVE A HYBRID COOLING SYSTEM AN ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM. KNOW THE PRODUCT PRIOR TO MAKING RECOMMENDATIONS
