Toyota Recalls 807,000 Prius Vehicles In U.S. That Could Stall

2012 Toyota Prius

Toyota is recalling certain 2010-2014 model year Toyota Prius and 2012-2014 Prius  v vehicles. Approximately 807,000 vehicles in the United States will be involved in this recall.

Toyota Prius Recall

The involved vehicles were designed to enter a failsafe driving mode in response to certain hybrid system faults. Toyota has found that in rare situations, the vehicle may not enter a failsafe driving mode as intended. If this occurs, 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.

This recall provides a remedy to address a new condition in the vehicles involved in the previous recalls announced in February 2014 and July 2015. The previous recalls did not anticipate this new condition remedied with this recall.

Remedy

To address this issue, Toyota dealers will update the software for all involved vehicles, at no charge.  Toyota will notify the involved customers once the software update is available.

For the most up-to-date Safety Recall information on Toyota, Lexus or Scion vehicles, customers should check their vehicle’s status by visiting toyota.com/recall and entering their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or license plate information. Safety Recall inquiry by individual VIN is also available at the NHTSA site: nhtsa.gov/recalls.

For any additional questions, customer support is also available by calling the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1.800.331.4331.
