2010 toyota prius lexus hs250h recall announced for brake issues

Toyota has announced a recall of 87,000 Prius and Lexus HS250h models from the 2010 model year.

The recall involves an issue surrounding a brake pressure accumulator that may fail as a result of a fatigue crack caused by vibration.

Owners will be notified by first class mail, with recalled vehicles having their brake booster pump inspected to see if a replacement part is necessary. If it is, a new (and improved) unit will be installed at no cost.
