The reason for this latest Toyota Prius recall is due to an issue with its parking brake, as there is a chance that it could become inoperative.

If the driver were to leave the vehicle in any other position other than park while the ignition is on, there is a chance that the vehicle could roll away.

As you can imagine, this is a serious safety risk, although there have not been any news of any incidents or injuries. If you have an affected model, then Toyota will contact you soon.
