Toyota Recalls 2004-09 Priuses

Update: Toyota says reported recall is already months old.

At this point, Toyota should just start giving its customers Hondas: The auto company is recalling all 2004 through 2009-model Priuses, the day after a driver in California was stuck accelerating for nearly 20 minutes. “As I was going, I was trying the brakes … it wasn’t stopping,” said the driver James Sikes, who drove a 2008 model. The car finally stopped when a cop told Sikes to pull the emergency break. The Priuses will be recalled to prevent pedal entrapment.
