Recall Alert : 2016-2017 Prius

RECALL Subject : Parking Brake Cable may Disengage from Lever

Report Receipt Date: OCT 14, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V741000
Component(s): PARKING BRAKE
Potential Number of Units Affected: 91,585


Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing

SUMMARY:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Prius vehicles manufactured August 6, 2015, to October 3, 2016. The affected vehicles are equipped with a foot-operated parking brake system that has a parking brake cable that may disengage.
CONSEQUENCE:
If the parking brake cable disengages from the mechanism and the transmission is left in a gear other than 'Park' while the ignition is on and the driver leaves the vehicle, the vehicle may roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will install a clip at the parking brake cable end to prevent the cable from disengaging, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 11, 2016. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota's number for this recall is G01.
