Brakes on Toyota Prius

3 posts in this topic

My sister in law has an 04 Prius that needs brakes. Is there anything special about brakes on a Prius? Isnt there some sort of charging system that charges the battery via the brakes?

Update:

Just talked to my brother in law and found out it is an 03 Honda Civic Hybrid, not a Prius.

The regenerative braking takes place in the electric motor/transmission. The hydraulic brake system is the same that you would see on any non-hybrid vehicle.

That is what I was hoping to hear!
