Default 436,000 Pirus and Lexus models are being officially recalled

Seriously....WTF? is going at Toyota...this is getting rediculous

Toyota Motor Corp., will recall around 436,000 hybrid cars worldwide, including the 2010 Prius model, Reuters is reporting. A press conference has been scheduled in Tokyo to announce the carmaker’s plans.

The international news agency has obtained a document that details 223,068 cars in Japan across four hybrid models — the newest Prius model, the Prius PHV (plug-in hybrid), the SAI and the Lexus HS250h — will be recalled for the braking problems first reported last week.

The Prius, the world’s largest selling hybrid, accounts for 199,666 vehicles recalled. Toyota will also recall about 213,000 other hybrid cars, including about 150,000 in North America, according to the document.



How could this braking issue not pass testing?

Keyword: VOLUNTARY not manditory. This wasn't a surprise, it was already being discussed a few days ago.

Read it before you jump to conclusions.
