Why it's on the list: Because every Prius from 2004 through 2009 is affected by at least one of these recalls


  • Steering intermediate extension shaft may fail (12V537000, 669,705 2004-2009 Toyota Prius)
  • Water pump may fail causing a vehicle stall (350,563 2004-2009 Toyota Prius)

Manufacturer's hotline: 800-331-4331

The Toyota Prius, and its hybrid components, have been remarkably trouble-free over more than a dozen years on the market, even as those earlier cars age. Yet this past year, Toyota introduced two significant safety-related recalls of concern to Prius owners for model years 2004 through 2009. One of them could lead to steering failure, and the other a sudden stall—so if you have an older Prius it's best that you check soon whether your vehicle is affected.

  1. I can't get too worked up about recalls like a lot of people. If the manufacturer has found a safety problem or something that might fail early and gets on top of it I applaud them. There was a time when something that wasn't right was neglected and manufacturer corrected in the next years model. As for the previous years purchaser he or she was SOL. Unless you had a good dealer's service manager that would go to bat for you when it came to warranty. And then we are all aware of the old 'fix if it fails' warranty. There again a good dealer's Service Manager would get every owners car fixed.
