Recall Notice

LemonFree has found some important recall information regarding 2008 Toyota Prius vehicles

2008 Toyota Prius (11/14/2012)  

Campaign Number: 12V537000

Component Name: STEERING

Manufacturer: TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION

Description: Toyota is recalling certain model year 2004-2009 Prius vehicles manufactured August 5, 2003, through March 30, 2009. The affected vehicles have a steering intermediate extension shaft assembly built with metal splines that complete the connection from the steering wheel to the steering gear. These splines may have been manufactured with an insufficient hardness.

Defect: Over time, the splines may wear and eventually fail resulting in a loss of steering ability, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Corrective Action: Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the extension shaft and replace it if it is one with insufficient hardness, free of charge. The recall began during December 2012. Owners may contact their Toyota dealer or the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.

2008 Toyota Prius (11/14/2012)  

Campaign Number: 12V536000

Component Name: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Manufacturer: TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION

Description: Toyota is recalling certain model year 2004-2009 Prius vehicles manufactured August 6, 2003, through March 30, 2009 and FCHV-adv vehicles manufactured December 12, 2008, through September 13, 2011.
