TOY­OTA RE­CALLS 2.4M PRIUS HY­BRIDS THAT COULD STALL

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - MONEY -

Toy­ota is re­call­ing about 2.4 mil­lion hy­brid cars world­wide that could stall while driv­ing. The Ja­panese au­tomaker said Fri­day that the re­call af­fects about 807,000 cars in the U.S. – cer­tain 2010 to 2014 Prius hy­brids and 2012 to 2014 Prius V hy­brids. The de­fect causes the ve­hi­cle in “rare sit­u­a­tions” to not en­ter what’s called fail­safe driv­ing mode. Cus­tomers will be no­ti­fied when they can get re­pairs; deal­ers will ap­ply a free soft­ware fix.
