2010 Toyota Prius Recalls
The mechanisms that inflate the side curtain air bags may have a crack develop, resulting in one or both portions of the inflator ejecting into the passener compartment. This could cause increased risk of occupant injury.
For vehicles equipped with aftermarket accessory seat heaters, the seat heater elements in the front seats may short circuit if they are damaged by the seat cushion being compressed over time. This could result in a fire hazard.
The seat heater may not work because of a damaged heating element.
The vehicle may operate only at a reduced power level or stall without warning.
Reduced braking performance may be experienced due to a brake booster system issue.
Vehicles that had added on seat accessories such as seat cover installation, seat heaters or headrest DVD systems may not have had proper calibration procedures performed to properly operate the occupant sensing system of the passenger seat. This may result in the passenger front air bag being inadvertently deactivated, increasing risk of injury in an accident.
The load carrying capacity modification label may be missing.
The way the brake pedal feels when slowing or stopping the car may be inconsistent. This may make the car brake slower than expected.
