Toyota Prius

Today’s Toyota bitch slap comes from Japan’s transportation ministry, who is (rightfully) pissed off at Toyota for not addressing software-related brake issues on current generation Prius models. The software glitch causes a one second delay in braking when the pedal is applied, which can be a serious issue at highway speeds.

Toyota acknowledged the issue and admitted to working on the best way to notify existing Prius owners, but stopped short of announcing another recall (yet). When released, it’s expected that the software update can be done at a Toyota dealership as part of a routine service.
