Toyota recalls some Prius, Lexus autos

Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. said Monday it will conduct a voluntary safety recall on approximately 133,000 2010 Prius vehicles and 14,500 Lexus Division 2010 HS 250h vehicles to update software in the vehicles' antilock brake system (ABS).

No other Toyota, Lexus, or Scion vehicles are involved in this recall.

The ABS, in normal operation, engages and disengages rapidly (many times per second) as the control system senses and reacts to tire slippage. Some 2010 Prius and 2010 HS 250h owners have reported experiencing inconsistent brake feel during slow and steady application of brakes on rough or slick road surfaces when the ABS is activated in an effort to maintain tire traction.....
