Toyota recalls hybrid cars with brake defects
Nearly 250,000 of Toyota’s Hybrid cars from around the world are going to recalled because of defective brakes, Toyota announced on June 5.
Despite no reports of injuries caused by the auto defect, the brake booster pump of the March-October 2009 version hybrid cars will still be subjected to a close inspection and possible replacement by Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., as it could possibly cause serious accidents. According to Toyota, nitrogen gas leaking into the brake fluid was the culprit – resulting in almost 100 Prius and Lexus hybrid car drivers to complain about problems stopping their cars.
