    What if I can't go back to work or my employer fires me or won't take me back after I have healed?

    If your doctor says your injury has caused permanent restrictions (like restrictions on lifting, bending or standing), then you receive additional benefits based on the amount of disability the doctor states. If your employer has a job within those permanent restrictions, it must offer that job to you or be subject to a penalty. But if there is no work within your restrictions, the employer does not have to take you back. You may also be entitled to more benefits because you cannot go back to your job or you may get retraining benefits to send you back to school so that you can get a job that pays as much as the job you lost.

    Do you need to replace hybrid batteries?

    Your hybrid battery pack should last for the lifetime of the vehicle, considered between 150 and 200 thousand miles, and may last even longer. Hybrid-related components for Toyota hybrid vehicles are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles. The HV battery may have longer coverage under emissions warranty. Plus, when it’s time to dispose of the battery, nickel metal hydride batteries are benign and can be fully recycled, posing no toxic hazards to the environment.

    How does Traction Control (TRAC) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) work and what are the benefits?

    Toyota’s Traction Control System continuously monitors the wheels whenever the vehicle accelerates. As soon as it detects that one or more drive wheels is starting to spin, it applies the brakes to the wheels and controls engine output to help the wheels better adhere to the road surface.

    Toyota’s VSC monitors your steering angle and the direction your vehicle is actually traveling and senses when your front or rear wheels begin to slip.

    When it senses this loss of traction or slip, VSC reduces engine power and applies braking to the individual wheels that need it to help correct the slip and keep the vehicle in the intended path.

    What are the effects of ethanol or E85 fuel?

    Flex fuel vehicles are vehicles that run on gasoline or E85, a fuel that contains up to 15 percent of ethanol. While Fuel economy will be substantially lower for any vehicle that uses E85 due to its lower energy, flex fuels make a difference at the pump by costing roughly 50 cents less per gallon. Vehicles that are designed for flex fuel, will have no difficulty switching back and forth between fuels. There are no issues with mixing E85 with unleaded gasoline in any ratio. The ECU senses the E85/unleaded gasoline ratio and adjusts engine performance accordingly.

    Do you need to plug-in hybrid vehicles to charge the battery?

    No. These nickel-metal hydride batteries are charged by an internal combustion engine (ICE) driven generator and/or by regenerative braking that captures power from deceleration and braking. And, they have a computer sensor that makes sure the batteries never completely run out of power.
