TOKYO (AP) - Toyota says it is recalling about 437,000 Prius and other hybrid cars worldwide to fix brake problems - the latest in a string of embarrassing safety problems at the world's largest automaker.
Company President Akio Toyoda made the recall announcement
Tuesday afternoon at a press conference.
"We have decided to recall as we regard safety for our
customers as our foremost priority," Toyoda said.
There have been about 200 complaints in Japan and the U.S. about a delay when the brakes in the Prius were pressed in some conditions.
