Toyota Recalls Prius for Parking Brake Fault

Toyota Prius

Toyota has recalled nearly 2,800 examples of its all-new Prius to fix parking brake cables that could detach from the rear brake calipers.

Transport Canada says the fear is that if the driver leaves the car with the ignition on and the transmission in a position other than park (like neutral, for example), the car could roll away.

Toyota is instructing its dealers to install a clip on the end of each cable to prevent them from detaching from the rear brakes. This recall covers certain 2016 and 2017 models.

As a child, Chris spent much of his time playing with toy cars in his parents’ basement; when his mother would tell him to go play outside, he made car sounds while riding his bicycle or dug roads for his toys in the flower garden. Now he gets to indulge his obsession playing with real cars that make their own cool noises, and gets paid for it.
