What are the defects?

During normal vehicle operation, the parking brake cable could disengage from the rear brake calliper, causing the parking brake to become inoperative.

What are the hazards?

If the parking brake does not engage and the transmission is left in a gear other than 'park', the vehicle could roll away, increasing the risk of an accident or cause an injury.

What should consumers do?

Affected Prius owners will be contacted by mail at their last known address, inviting them to make an appointment with their preferred Toyota Dealer to have the repair carried out free of charge.
