Toyota Issues Stop-Sale on New Prius Models » AutoGuide.com News


Along with ordering its dealers to stop selling the 2016-2017 Prius, Toyota is also recalling 91,585 units in the U.S. for parking brakes that may fail to engage. The new 2016-2017 Prius has a foot-operated parking brake with a tension cable that could possibly detach from the rear brake calipers, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The automaker first discovered the problem in May, following a U.S. dealer’s report on a failure.

found it first in may, issue a stop sale now and don't start fixing until December


ouch that has got to hurt sales

That will definitely hurt sales. A complete stop-sale is a big deal :|

if they have a stop sale with immediate effect and not repair cars until December that is potentially a whole month of sales lost at a minimum

A month out of 6-7+ years of this vehicles entire production time line isn't that big of a deal. Better that they do this now rather than later especially on a model that's new in its first year of production.

Plus if you REALLY want a Prius, you will only want a Prius, and being something you will keep for years waiting a month or two isn't a big deal.
