Every automaker company got into the situation when a major problem with a vehicle is noticed after thousands of cars were already sold, sometimes millions, which makes it even harder and very expensive to recall such vehicles for an inspection and possibly replacement of faulty parts or modules.

This time is about Toyota Prius Hybrid models, if you or somebody in your family own one, please read the article and contact the dealer for more detailed information.

Toyota recalls more than 2 million of its iconic Prius hybrids worldwide due to the risk that a software crash could lead to an accident.

Form overall about 2.43 million vehicles, about 1.25 million are in danger in Japan and 830,000 in North America, a spokesman said, in Canada, 23,125 cars have been affected. This is the second recall for the Prius during the month, and the previous one was more than 1 million hybrid cars due to the risk of fire.

Just recently The Ford Motor Company announced one of the largest recalls in its history. Ford recalled nearly 1.5 million Focus vehicles in North America, due to the problem of the fuel system, which can cause the engine to stop without warning.

The recall covers model years from 2012 to 2018 with two-liter four-cylinder engines. In the United States of America 1,282,596 of these cars are registered, 136,272 in Canada and 44,521 in Mexico.
