Toyota Prius brake recall

Toyota is expected to announce, in the next 48 hours, the recall of its Prius hybrid model over problems with the brakes.

Only a relatively small number have been sold here -- 58 -- since the new model was introduced late last year. The car manufacturer is believed to be on the brink of a worldwide recall of the Prius.

Toyota faces at least 12 lawsuits in the US claiming deaths or injuries caused by unwanted acceleration of vehicles.
