Braking and steering issues cause car recall

TOYOTA is to recall more than 180 cars in Ireland to fix braking and steering problems.
The company yesterday confirmed that 39 Prius hybrids manufactured between 2000 and 2003, and another 147 Toyota iQs produced between October 2008 and May 2010, were being recalled because of safety concerns.
The manufacturer is concerned that the 39 first-generation Prius models may have a problem with their power steering which can give the steering a 'vague' feeling.
The second campaign involves 147 Toyota iQs where there is a "possibility" foreign material can move into the brake master cylinder, which can affect braking power.
"Toyota Ireland will be writing to those owners involved," said a spokesman.
