do you really want to debate regenerative braking systems? Price out your prius brake components and lets compare.

I wouldn't brag to much about brakes on a prius. There have been so many complaints that the Japanese government ordered Toyota to start an investigation into the problem.

Ever do a brake service? If you don't perform one every year on disc brakes systems you will continue to have the same problems. From what I see, it's usually not the car's fault but rather lack of maintenance. Owners don't think its needed because its not listed in the maintenance schedule.

Ask them to try disconnecting power to the OnStar VCIM (not something indispensable)?
The CD Player, inside the Radio, has switches that fail at times. This can happen randomly, even if you didn't us the CD drive. You can unplug the CD drive inside the Radio if you do not use the CD or fix it. I have had this problem with different GM Cars through the years.

I took it to a different dealer and they did not find a problem, so they just changed the battery and no problems since. This has been over three years ago.
