Toyota is now considering a U.S. and Japanese recall of Prius hybrids -- the vehicle that's a symbol of its technological prowess and green car ambitions. Toyota is also investigating possible brake problems with its luxury Lexus hybrid and the luxury Sai sedan, also a hybrid. That's in addition to millions of recalls over gas pedal problems.
Japan's top business newspaper says Toyota will soon notify Japan's transport ministry and the U.S. Department of Transportation of the recall.
A transport ministry official, said the government has yet to receive a recall notice from Toyota. A Toyota spokeswoman says the company has not yet decided whether to recall the model in the U.S. and Japan.
