On Tuesday Toyota voluntarily recalled over 80,000 hybrids for a safety check on the vehicles’ brakes. The 2010 Prius hybrids and Lexus HS 250h models are the vehicles at risk.
These cars have a brake pressure accumulator that could develop a fatigue crack internally because of the car’s vibration, according to Toyota. All owners of these vehicles (over 87,000) will receive notification by first class mail and should bring their vehicles in to an authorized dealer for inspection. If it is deemed necessary by the dealer, the brake booster pump assembly will be replaced at no cost to the customer.
