Toyota announced a major recall for 2010 Toyota Prius and Lexus HS 250h in America. Both hybrid cars apparently suffer from an issue with their braking system which needs inspection, and possibly replacing.
The problem is with a brake pressure accumulator that may develop a fatigue crack on an internal part due to vibration. A brake defect cannot be treated lightly, but Toyota says they have no reports of any accidents or injuries associated with this condition.
Approximately 87,000 model year 2010 Toyota Prius and Lexus HS 250h vehicles are affected by this issue. The Corporate will notify every owner by first class mail and arrange them a dealer visit. The technicians will inspect the braking system and replace the brake booster pump assembly with an improved one. The treatment is of course free of charge for the customers.
So if you own a Prius or HS250 from that period, drive very carefully until you have it checked out. Granted, these hybrids are too slowly to need a brake system in the first place, but still!
