2012 Toyota Prius C: Why Is It Not Beeping?

March 1, 2013

2012 Toyota Prius C

As I was backing up our Toyota Prius C into my garage parking space, I noticed that something didn't seem quite right.

"Wait, why isn't it beeping?"

If you back up a regular Prius, it beeps like crazy when in reverse. It's absolutely infuriating.

"Yes, thank you, I know I'm backing up. This isn't a garbage truck. I remember putting that little nub shifter thing in reverse."

And that, I suspect, is the difference between the Prius C and Prius Original Recipe. The C has a traditional shifter, which I suppose is easier for absent minded Prius drivers to observe is in reverse. Whatever, at least it's not beeping.
