Toyota Recalls 52,000 Prius Hybrids (2001-2003)

If you are a Prius early-adopter and still have your 2001 to 2003 model, listen up: Toyota is doing a voluntary security recall on 52,000 first generation Prius hybrids in the US to "replace the electric power steering pinion shaft attachment nuts [...] If the steering wheel is repeatedly and strongly turned to the full-lock position, there is a possibility the nuts securing the pinion shaft in the steering gear box assembly may become loose. If the vehicle is continuously operated in this condition, over time, the customer will gradually notice significant increased steering effort when making a left turn." Via Toyota .
