10,645 vehicles affected in Germany
Once again, the North American market is particularly affected, where around 390,000 cars have to be repaired. The dealers were informed on Monday, said the spokesman. Another 180,000 Prius are affected in Japan, 70,000 in Europe and 7,000 other cars in Oceania. Toyota's image suffered from the recall of more than 8.5 million cars due to sticking gas pedals and slipping floor mats, especially in North America.
In Germany, Toyota wrote to 10,645 Toyota Prius owners to check their vehicles asked to the workshops. The affected vehicles date from the production period from 2003 to 2007. The coolant pump for the inverter-converter-gearbox cooling circuit is checked in the workshops. In individual cases, coolant could leak here. If necessary, the coolant pump will be replaced.
