Toyota Issues Prius Recall

Posted: Updated:

Toyota is recalling almost 2 million cars.  

The recall covers all third-generation Prius cars sold worldwide. Toyota said the cars have a programming glitch in their hybrid system. In very few cases, the hybrid system could shut down and cause the car to stop...possibly while it's still being driven.

Half of the recalls are in Japan and more than 700-thousand are in North America. So far - no accidents related to the problem have been reported. If you have one of the cars on the recall list, you will be notified by Toyota.
