News report: Toyota to recall thousands of Prius hybrids

According to reports out of Japan, Toyota has plans to recall 270,000 Prius hybrids in the U.S. and Japan.

Nikkei News Service says the Japanese automaker will issue the recall to fix a
problem with the vehicle's anti-lock brake system.

It would cover 2010 third-generation Prius vehicles sold between May and
December of 2009, affecting about 100,000 cars in the U.S. and 176,000 in Japan.

Consumer complaints about brake problems prompted the U.S. Department of
Transportation to launch an investigation earlier today.

In a statement, Toyota officials say they will evaluate the condition as it
relates to owner complaints, and will keep the transportation department
