Toyota Prius/Lexus Hybrid Recall

On February 8, 2010, Toyota recalled more than 400,000 hybrid vehicles, including the 2010 Prius and the Lexus HS250h, to fix their breaks. The NHTSA said it had opened an investigation into the 2010 Prius relating to reports of momentary loss of braking capability while traveling over an uneven road surface, pothole or bump. The NHTSA said it had received 124 reports from consumers, including four reports alleging that crashes occurred. A week after the recall was announced, complaints spiked, with the NHTSA now logging a total of 1,120 complaints alleging 34 crashes and six injuries involving Prius brakes.
