Toyota Recall of Certain Model Year 2001 through 2003 Prius Passenger Cars

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—June 3, 2011

Summary: Toyota is recalling certain model year 2001 through 2003 Prius passenger cars manufactured from January 28, 2000, through May 30, 2003. The steering linkage may loosen resulting in reduced electric steering assistance when making a left turn.

Consequence: Loss of power steering, particularly when an operator is actively intending to steer the vehicle, may increase the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Toyota will notify owners and dealers will replace the nuts in the steering linkage free of charge. The Safety Recall is expected to begin in early July 2011. Owners may contact Toyota at 800-331-4331.

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
