I'm told that there was not a recall, but rather an "advisory" that was

Saw the news today, oh boy.
The reported problems seem to be with 2004's.
 I've had a 2005 since January with no problems at all.
Anyone else have stalling issues???
Do dealers have a software patch???

There has been a total of something like 30 reported cases of
stalling by '04 and early '05 Prius.

On a different group a poster reported that there are a total of
about 100 freeway stalls per day in Los Angeles.

These don't tend to make the New York Times.

Mine exhibited this issue once a few months ago at a traffic signal, as the
OP, so there was no stall as such. The software/firmware was updated by the
dealer and it has had no re-occurrence of the problem. However, since it
happened only once in 15 months of ownership, it was an extremely isolated
incident and difficult to say whether this patch has done anything.
