I was watching Japan's NHK News a while ago that had a 5-minute report
on
braking problems reported over the past several months to the
Ministry of
Transportation.

Prius, the best selling car in Japan, appears to have problems
with its
electrical (non-hydraulic) portion of the braking system at low speeds.

The report didn't say what actions Toyota would take or that Japan's
Ministry
of Transportation might take. The issue is being studied at the
moment.

Unfortunately, this comes soon after the other, non-related, brake
pedal
problems Toyota has been having with models made in the USA.
