UPDATE: Third-generation Toyota Prius recalled in UK

Date: 09 February 2010

Clean models such as the Prius have boosted Toyota's fleet sales

Toyota is recalling its third-generation Prius worldwide, which involves 8500 cars in the UK.

The recall is due to reports of inconsistent brake feel during slow and steady braking on bumpy or slick road surfaces when the anti-lock braking system is activated.

To date, there have been no accidents linked to this issue reported in Europe.

This recall will consist of a software upgrade in the anti-lock braking syste, a procedure that will be free of charge and take approximately 40 minutes at Toyota service centres.

Toyota said it will write to every owner in the next few days having obtained their contact details from the DVLA.

The carmaker added the cars are safe to drive in the meantime and no other Toyota or Lexus models are affected by this latest recall action in Europe.
