About 92,000 current series Toyota Prius vehicles are being recalled in the U.S. after concerns were raised that the vehicle could roll away with no one inside.
Affecting 2016 and 2017 Toyota Prius sedan vehicles sold in the U.S., there is no word yet on any similar action in Australia, we will bring you any updates on that as soon as they come to hand.
If this occurs and the driver exits the vehicle with the transmission in a gear other than ‘Park’ while the ignition is on, the vehicle could roll away, increasing the risk of a crash.
While U.S. Toyota Prius owners are advised that the recall will see Toyota dealers add clips on the top of the brake cable dust boots to prevent the cable from becoming inoperative.
The U.S. recall will commence in November and Toyota USA tell us they will be contacting owners directly by first class mail.
