Toyota Prius Recalls
The parking brake cable may disengage from the parking brake foot operated mechanism, causing the vehicle to not be stable when parked. If the parking brake is engaged and the cable disengages, the vehicle may roll, causing injury.
The passenger air bag assembly may partially inflate without warning, without being triggered by an accident. This could increase risk of injury.
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.
Southeast Toyota is recalling certain 2010 - 2013 Toyota & Scion vehicles because the vehicle weight information label is incorrect. This recall applies to Toyotas sold in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North & South Carolina.
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.
A portion of the shaft connecting the steering wheel to the steering rack may wear, causing looseness or possibly a complete loss of steering.
