Toyota to recall 2.4 million hybrid vehicles over stalling issue

Toyota Prius Auris recall

Toyota's new recall covers about 2.43 million Prius cars worldwide, including more than 1 million that were sold in Japan and almost 300,000 in Europe, according to Automotive News.

The latest recall affects several models of Toyota's Prius and its Auris hybrid vehicles produced between October 2008 and November 2014, with approximately 8476 potentially affected cars sold in Australia. See the chart below.

It involves the vehicle failing to "enter a fail-safe driving mode in response to certain hybrid system faults".

Vehicles sold in Japan, America, Europe, China, Africa, and other regions are also affected.

When asked if any crashes had been reported because of the issue, Toyota offered no comment.

Power steering and braking would still work, but a stall at a fast speed could increase the risk of a crash.

Auto owners of Prius, Prius + and Auris hybrid models are advised to ensure the software on their vehicle is updated - but drivers do not need to do anything just yet.

Toyota to recall 2.4 million hybrid vehicles over stalling issue

"Toyota has found that in rare situations, the vehicle may not enter a failsafe driving mode as intended".

Prius vehicles were involved in an earlier recall for a different problem, that did not fix the current software issue, the company said.

A total of 744 Toyota Prius cars in Singapore have been recalled due to a fault that could result in a higher risk of the cars crashing.

When that happens, "the vehicle could lose power and stall".

Shares of Toyota (tm) were little changed at the close of trading in Tokyo.

In 2016, Toyota announced the recall of 3.37 million vehicles globally over problems with air bags and a fuel emission control unit.
