Additional information:

Among the 64 recalls the NHTSA has announced this November comes news of the following:

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (“Toyota”) has recalled an estimated 39,915 model year 2012-2015 Prius Plug-in Hybrid vehicles. The hybrid battery contains an Electric Vehicle (EV) fuse that may fracture after repeated high-load driving conditions such as climbing long hills.

According to the NHTSA, the failed fuse may cause the hybrid system to shut down resulting in the loss of power. Loss of power while driving at higher speeds can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do next? Toyota will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the EV fuse, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 8, 2018. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota’s number for this recall is H0R.
