Additional information:

Among the 97 (ninety seven) recalls the NHTSA announced this past month comes news of the following:

Logo - Toyota Motor Engineering & ManufacturingToyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (“Toyota”), a Plano Texas establishment and subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation, a Toyota City, Japan establishment, has recalled an estimated 3,751 model year 2019 Prius vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V876000 reports that an electrical short circuit in the combination meter could occur, causing the speedometer, the odometer and the fuel gauge to go blank. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 101, “Controls and Displays.”

According to the NHTSA, a blank main display will not show important information such as vehicle speed or fuel level. Driving with an inoperative display can increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the flash memory chip (“ROM”) production date, and if necessary, replace it along with the combination meter circuit board, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 3, 2020. Owners may contact Toyota Customer Service toll-free at 1-888-270-9371 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Toyota’s designations for this recall are 19TA21 and 19TB21.
