A popular car manufacturer is recalling more than one million cars worldwide over potential fire risk. Toyota’s recall includes its Prius, Prius plug-in hybrid, and C-HR SUV models produced in June 2015 and May 2018. The safety recall stems wire harnesses connected to the cars’ power control units.
Toyota fears that these wires can wear away over time, generating heat and eventually causing fires. More than half of the recalled vehicles are overseas in Japan and just under 200,000 are in the US.
In 2016, Toyota recalled more than one-point-seven million vehicles due to airbags and parking brake issues. The Japanese manufacturing company says they will provide fixes to customers free of charge.
