Toyota Model Recall: 2004-2009 Toyota Prius

In the past few years, the Toyota Prius has been a real force in the North American car market, a benchmark for other hybrid model vehicles, and a popular way to drive a personal car that uses a lot less gasoline. Ecologically minded drivers have praised the Toyota Prius hybrid engine system, and throughout the last decade, many of these cars replaced the traditional loud idling engine with a smooth, quiet humming sound during idling and coasting.

Recently, things have not been going as well for the Toyota Prius in particular and the Toyota Company in general. The Toyota Prius has recently been named in two separate recalls that go as far back as the 2004 model year. That means that a whole lot of Prius drivers are trying to find out what they can do with vehicles that have been recalled as potentially defective models.

The main recall that has led to questions over literally millions of Toyota vehicles is composed of two parts. A recall involving floor mats applies to a large part of the Toyota lineup. Another recall regarding sticky gas pedals also applies to a large number of Toyota models. Toyota company resources show that the Toyota Prius is only affected by the former recall situation. Prius models from 2004-2009 are part of the floor mat pedal entrapment recall that has drivers consulting consumer groups, Toyota recall accident lawyer firms and other expert sources about what they can do with potentially dangerous vehicles. Toyota has asked drivers to move floor mats from the vehicles. Letters from Toyota are being sent with instructions on participating dealerships for inspection and repair.

Along with the floor mat recall, the newer 2010 Prius is also named in a specialized recall over potential defects in the anti-lock brake (ABS) system. According to the company, poor configuration of ABS software can cause problems when the anti-lock brakes are engaged. Toyota says Prius owners can have experienced Toyota mechanics make changes to the ABS software that will fix the issue.

With all of the Toyota Prius recall activity going on, some owners who have reported problems with their vehicles may look to Toyota Prius accident attorney firms for representation in cases involving liability from a defective Prius on the road.
