FIRE!  Toyota Prius Recall Makes Us Think It's Just Jealous of Tesla
Some U.S. Prius cars are being recalled for risk of fire. Should we report it?
Prius recalled for Fire.  Not Tesla.

A little less than 200K Toyota Prius cars are being recalled in the U.S. for risk of FIRE! Out of fairness to Tesla we are doing our level best to make the most of this story. In the past readers of Torque News and other publications were kind enough to point out that the media never covers gasoline-fueled vehicle fires. While we disagree with that accusation (here's why) we value our readers' input and wanted to be sure that we didn't miss this opportunity to do a story on the world's top-selling green car and also mention FIRE!


We don't have any great Prius car fire videos for you. As far as we can tell from the recall information there haven't actually been any. The recall covers 2016-2018 model year Prius cars.
