Toyota (TM) is recalling 1.9 million of its Prius hybrid vehicles worldwide, marking the latest hiccup for the Japanese automaker.

Toyota said Wednesday the issue stems from a software glitch that could cause the cars to stall. The recall includes model-year 2010 to 2014 Prius hybrids manufactured between March 2009 and February 2014.

The company will recall about 713,000 of the cars in North America. Roughly 997,000 vehicles in Japan are affected, while the rest are in Europe, Asia and other regions.

Janek: No. No, it just disappeared, actually. Must be a glitch.

Millburn: What do you mean, "a glitch"?

Janek: All right, boys. Sleep tight. Try not to bugger each other.

Millburn: Captain, what do you mean, "a glitch"?

Fifield: Millburn. What does he mean? Wait. Now, he said - He said one click west, yeah?

Millburn: Yeah.

Fifield: Now, we... We don't want to check that out, do we, huh?

Millburn: Shit, no.

Fifield: Where are we gonna go?

Millburn: East.

Fifield: Yeah, east.

Millburn: A fucking glitch, man. "Pings, glitch, life form." What the fuck?

Meanwhile Tesla just silently publishes hundreds of software fixes to their cars ;p

 

it's a bit strong to call it a recall, it's merely a please come to a dealer/repair shop for a free software upgrade that will fix a "possible" problem that "may" occur in extremely rare circumstances with your.

It might be a "recall" because it causes total engine failure.

Each time my MiTo's been back they've automatically done a software update - so I guess it's pretty normal.

Why there is still no software update over the air?

the thing is, only the new car owners and informed people would know this; second hand car dealers don't give a crap and won't alert their costumers, neither the second hand market. :/
