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.
