Toyota set to recall 37,000 Priuses

It just gets worse by the day for Toyota Motors. The company is reportedly poised to recall 37,000 new Priuses, and has launched a probe into the Lexus HS250h, a luxury hybrid sold in the U.S. and Japan.

The Prius”s braking comes into question, but unlike the recent recalls, this issue is software related. Yesterday, company officials in Japan said that they have been aware of the issue for a period of time and have already updated the software for vehicles in production.

The Lexus HS250h uses the same braking system as the Prius, but has not been the subject of any reported problems. The probe is just a precautionary safety measure.

Toyota has declined to comment on the situation.
