Following its October 2019 recall for 928,000 vehicles for an airbag explosion risk, Toyota (TM) has is now recalling certain Prius, C-HR, Corolla and Corolla Hybrid vehicles in two separate recalls for safety issues.

The Prius recall involves 3,800 2019 models that may have a faulty combination meter that stems from an electrical short circuit. This could cause the speedometer, odometer, and fuel gauge to stop working, violating safety regulations and causing a safety risk that could divert the driver’s attention while driving.

To remedy the meter issue, Toyota dealers will check the component within the combination meter and, if required, replace the meter’s circuit board at no cost to the vehicle owner.

Prius owners will be notified of the recall, starting in early February.

Toyota has also recalled about 9,000 C-HR, Corolla, and Corolla Hybrid vehicles. The recall affects certain models that are equipped with rear seat belt assemblies with two types of locking mechanisms.

The issue with the seat belts revolves around one of the locking mechanisms that may have been assembled incorrectly, which could cause an occupant of the vehicle to not be restrained properly during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

To repair the seat belt issue, Toyota dealers will inspect the rear seat belt assemblies and replace them if they were not assembled correctly at no cost to the vehicle owner.

The automaker said it will begin notifying affected C-HR, Corolla and Corolla Hybrid owners in early February.

Questions about the recall can be directed to Toyota’s Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331 or the Lexus Guest Experience Center at 1-800-255-3987.

Shares of Toyota stock were down 0.23% as of 10:14 a.m. EST on Thursday.
