    Toyota Prius recall over brake


    TOYOTA said yesterday

    it was recalling around 340,000 of its latest Prius petrol hybrid model in Japan and overseas to fix

    a parking brake issue.

    The recall covers models produced between October last year and this month.

    It affects around 210,000 vehicles in Japan and 92,000 in North America, Toyota said, adding that the balance would be recalled

    in Europe, Australia and other regions.

    No accidents have been reported in Japan in connection with the issue,

    a Toyota spokesman said, while declining to comment on whether any accidents had occurred overseas.
