I recently switched this summer to QS (Quaker State) Defy in 10w30, on our 2007 Prius.

Never has it run so quietly or smoothly...other than maybe the one time I used Mobil 5w30.

In years past, when I was a Subaru owner with Boxer engine, I ran QS once or twice on that motor & really was not a fan of it (became noisy after about 2000 miles with fresh OCI).

My question:
Does anyone else have experience using QS Defy in a Prius? This was the oil on clearance last winter at Autozone, and I am thinking of buying some in 5w30 for next winter.

You're wise to use Defy, for the reason that it has High Mileage style seal conditioners to keep the polymers flexible on a 10 year old vehicle.
I don't believe there would be any difference in sound coming from the engine.
