Toyota Prius recall


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Toyota has some recall issues.

242,000 of its Prius hybrids are being recalled because they could have a problem with the brakes.

They include certain Toyota Prius cars built between March and October of 2009, and Lexus hybrids built in the same period.

The automaker says they've received more than 90 complaints from drivers, saying they needed to apply more pressure than previously on the brake pedal when stopping.

So far, there are no reported crashes or injuries.
