Toyota Recalls 87,000 Prius and Lexus Cars

Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., today announced that it will conduct a voluntary safety recall involving approximately 87,000 model year 2010 Toyota Prius and Lexus HS 250h vehicles.


The involved vehicles are equipped with a brake pressure accumulator that may develop a fatigue crack on an internal part due to vibration.  Toyota has had no reports of any accidents or injuries associated with this condition.


Owners of vehicles subject to this recall will receive a notification by first class mail.  The recall remedy will involve inspection of the brake booster pump assembly to see if it is equipped with an involved accumulator.  If so, the dealer will replace the brake booster pump assembly with an improved one at no cost to the customer.


Toyota owners can call 1-800-331-4331 and Lexus owners can call 1-800-255-3987 for more information.
