Fire Risk Prompts Major Recall Of Over 1 Million Prius and C-HR Vehicles

Bloomberg News (9/5, Buckland, Horie, 4.46M) reports that Toyota Motor Corp. has issued a recall on 1.03 million Prius and C-HR vehicles “due to the risk of fire.” The recall will affect 554,000 vehicles in Japan and 192,000 in the US. The cars feature an engine wire harness that is at risk of wear over time, which could lead to a fire. One incident has been reported of a vehicle emitting smoke due to the issue, though no injuries have been reported, according to Toyota spokesman Jean-Yves Jault.

CNN Money (9/5) reports that drivers will receive recall notifications in the mail starting this month. The recall affects models manufactured from June 2015 to May 2018. The company will cover the cost of repairs.

NPR (9/5, Jenkins, 3.55M) reports that the mailing of the recall notices “should be completed within 60 days of the manufacturer notifying National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the recall, according to Toyota.” Letters are expected to be issued in full by late September, but drivers who wish to check whether their vehicles are affected sooner “can enter their Vehicle Identification Number or license plate information at or to stay updated on recall information.”
