Report: Toyota To Recall Prius Hybrid In US, Japan

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.

    All a Lexus is is an overpriced, re-badged Toyota. Surely if Toyota cars were having problems, Lexus's would have those same problems.
