Toyota's Prius Brake Recall Could Come This Week

If recalls were horse races, Toyota Motor (TM) could be described as going for a trifecta. The world's largest automaker appears likely to announce a recall as soon as Tuesday of at least 311,000 2010 Priuses, after owners reported having difficulty stopping on slippery and bumpy roads. The latest action will follow two massive recalls of 8 million Toyota models for unintended acceleration. Unlike the issues which led to the previous recalls, which were mechanical in nature, the problem with the Prius is apparently a software issue.
