Prius Power Loss: Toyota recalling 11,500 Prius cars in Canada for powertrain defect

Toronto, Ontario — Toyota is recalling 11, 576 older Prius hybrids in Canada due to a powertrain defect that could lead to the cars suddenly stalling.

Toyota will update the hybrid software in all affected vehicles, and will replace the powertrain if a fault led to an inverter failure.
