Toyota Prius Recall Imminent

Toyota decided Saturday to recall its latest Prius model in Japan, Japan’s largest newspaper, the Yomiuri, reported. An announcement in the US is imminent.

It is likely the recall would not have occurred now, but Toyota is concerned about another repair- its reputation for safety.

Many dangerous products don’t get recalled because they don’t get news coverage. The Detroit Free Press is following the unfolding story well.
