Toyota recalls Prius and other hybrids, brings total of recalled vehicles worldwide to 8.5 million

As anticipated, Toyota has announced that it is recalling 2010 Prius hybrids and the hybrid Lexus HS250h, which are sold in the US, along with another model, the Sai, available only in Japan, because of problems with the models' antilock braking system (ABS). The recall comes after hundreds of reports of problems with the system, and follows massive recalls because of problems with unintended acceleration in many of its most popular models last fall and last month.

The official Toyota recall notice can be found here. The notice also announced a recall of certain 2010 Camry models because of the design of the power steering hose that could lead to possible holes in the vehicles' front brake tube, resulting in a loss of braking power in those vehicles.
