2010 Toyota Prius – Click above for high-res image gallery

Back in 2006, Toyota recalled around 320,000 Prius models over a steering problem. That was a big deal, but it might be a footnote compared to a recall being considered for the latest Prius models over a problem with the brakes. While the number of hybrid vehicles affected will be slightly lower – the WSJ says that Toyota has sold 311,000 third-gen Priuses – the impact will likely be bigger because of all the interest in the Toyota recall story that's been making such waves recently. Whether or not the 2010 Prius models are recalled has not been decided, but we expect more details soon. Stay tuned.

      Hopefully it can be fixed with a simple software update. They should have reserved the brake pedal for hydraulic braking only, and let the throttle position dictate the engagement of regenerative braking.

        Who has said the regenerative braking has had anything to do with this problem? By all accounts, it's a problem with ABS, which is a separate system.

      You just have to understand the brake issue then its not an issue, when stoping at 10 miles an hour, watch out for a dip which will effect both tires simultaneously, if possible make it only affect one wheel. I've got 11,000 on my 2010 prius alrdy, and yes, it just a softwear flaw, if view a double loss of traction as ice/snow, and attempt to roll you there by disengaging the brake like all ABS does to keep from sliding. Even if they recall it, unless its a quick fix computer trick Im leaving mine as is.
      PS: Stop reporting on the toyota issues, I know you like to inform, but your furthering the suppression of the greenest large automotive company.

      YOUR Autobloggreen, it's self defeating to further tarnish the image of the leading greenest automobile manufacture.

      So Speak When you have something to say, not just to say "we're still waiting for conformation, but heres another rub of it in your face"

        Get Firefox or learn to spell.

        Nice use of big words there. Before you start giving advice you might want to learn to read. I love when people like yourself attempt to talk down to me with nothing important or useful to say. I actually have an immense vocabulary, and am quite apt at spelling, when it's necessary. On a site like autoblog, of course people are more willing to take in what you give them if your proof read yourself or take your time, or are just in a fluent course of thought. Regardless, you can understand what I'm going for, and if your can't it is you yourself with the mental deficiencies not I, so next time you feel like becoming a hall monitor with a grammar badge, resist.
