The recall covers models produced between August 2015 and October 2016, and affects around 210,000 vehicles in Japan and 94,000 in North America, Toyota said, adding that the balance would be recalled in Europe, Australia and other regions.

 

No accidents have been reported in Japan in connection with the issue, a Toyota spokeswoman said, while declining to comment on whether any accidents had occurred overseas.

Recent recall Samsung Note 7 had left some who bought from parallel importers in trouble. They have difficult in getting an exchange from the authorised agent.

 

In such an event as in this case, Prius, what is the recourse for those who bought from parallel importer. If the AD does not entertain those who bought from parallel importer, does the transport department do something? Otherwise if this is a hazard that requires repairs, we will have lots of dangerous vehicles on the road.

While they recall I hope they also change the bumper design... This prius looks like some creature from studio ghibli's animation
