And Now for Another Big Toyota Recall
Posted on Feb 9, 2010
Sorry, Toyota. Certainly there’ll be a slew of jokes about the automaker’s old “Oh, what a feeling!” commercials—oh, wait, too late!—now that Toyota has caught yet another tough break (sorry again) in the form of a recall of about “436,000 hybrid vehicles worldwide,” according to the BBC. —KA
Toyota has announced the recall of about 436,000 hybrid vehicles worldwide, including its latest Prius model, to fix brake problems.
The total includes more than 200,000 Prius cars sold in Japan and 8,500 cars in the UK.
“We have decided to recall as we regard safety for our customers as our foremost priority,” the firm said.
The company has already recalled eight million vehicles because of accelerator and floormat problems.
