I was watching Japan's NHK News a while ago that had a 5-minute report
on
breaking 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 breaking 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.

Prius doesn't have a breaking system.  They don't break.

It's GMs that have built-in breaking systems.

It would have been nice if you had bothered to spell check your
message--and the subject of this thread, for that matter.

And it would have been nice if you weren't so petty. You might even had
noticed
that the message was resent with a correction way before you
replied with your
juvenile remark.
