On Wednesday, Toyota announced a voluntary recall of certain hybrid models including the Prius and C-HR hybrid vehicles. According to the Los Angeles Times, “An engine wire harness connected to the power control unit is at risk of wear over time, potentially leading to a short circuit or even a fire, the company said in a statement.”
This recall affects cars built in Japan between June 2015 and May 2018, including the Prius plug-in variant and the hybrid version of the C-HR, however, the company has agreed to inspect the wire harness assembly and if a wire core is exposed, repairs will be handled at no cost to vehicle owners due to this blunder. The vehicle owners can also go here, if they want to verify if their car is affected.
