In the wake of Toyota’s massive safety-related recalls, many Atlanta-area Prius owners are wondering if all the hype warrants serious concerns. Of course it does and here’s why. The latest recall stems from Prius owners experiencing “a short delay before the brakes kick in.” Couple this with the 5 million-vehicle Toyota recall for “problems with floor mats which can trap gas pedals and not allow the pedal to release” and “concerns related to gas pedals not returning to idle” and one can only wonder what serious accidents can occur as a direct result of these serious design flaws.
To date, this dangerous defect has been potentially linked to four serious car wreck by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). However, the jury is still out and all Prius owners should exercise extreme care until this issue is resolved. Toyota brass have apparently been slow to acknowledge and recall other cars for safety issues.
