Toyota venture to recall thousands of Prius cars, report says

SFTM Changchun Fengyue Co. Ltd., a 50-50 joint venture between Chinese carmaker FAW Car Co. Ltd. (000800.CN) and Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp., will recall 3,210 Prius cars in China after discovering problems in the control software, Xinhua news agency reported late Wednesday. The recall will affect vehicles produced between Dec. 20, 2011 and Jan. 28, 2014, the report said, citing an online statement from the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine. In extreme cases, flaws in the control program would make the cars unable to function and carry safety risks, according to the statement.
