Toyota Prius recall expands to Australia

The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently announced that the Prius recall has been expanded to Australia, because of the same problem with the electric water pump.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), a total of 8,119 units of the second generation Toyota Prius will be affected by this recall and owners of the model will have to take a trip back to the dealers soon. The ACCC says that the affected vehicles have a fault with the electric water pump. The Toyota Prius recall in Australia will include the models produced between August 1, 2003 and March 30, 2009.

The Toyota Prius recall in Australia is expected to begin soon, but the company didn’t announce an exact date for when owners of the model will be notified and when they will be able to drive their hybrid vehicles to the local dealership. The Toyota Prius recall in Australia is part of a global recall which affects a total of 2,77 million vehicles worldwide, out of which 670,000 are Prius models. Owners of the second-gen Toyota Prius in Australia are being advised to contact their local Toyota dealer in order to find out more about this recall.
