Hybrid Cars Being Recalled by Toyota

On October 8, 2018 from USA Today

Toyota is recalling about 2.4 million hybrid cars worldwide that could stall while driving.

The Japanese automaker said Friday that the recall affects about 807,000 Toyota Prius cars in the U.S. It covers certain 2010 to 2014 Prius hybrids and certain 2012 to 2014 Prius V hybrids.

Prius Hybrid Recalls May Cause Car Accidents

“The defect occurs in rare situations,” Toyota said. It involves the vehicle failing to “enter a fail-safe driving mode in response to certain hybrid system faults.”

When that happens, “the vehicle could lose power and stall. While power steering and braking would remain operational, a vehicle stall while driving at higher speeds could increase the risk of a crash.”

The automaker did not say whether it had linked any car crashes, car injuries or car accident deaths to the problem.
