MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Over 80,000 models of Toyota Prius and Lexus were voluntarily recalled Tuesday to check on the safety of the brakes.

The 2010 Prius and Lexus HS 250h models both have a brake pressure accumulator that, according to Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.,  could possibly develop a fatigue crack internally because of the car’s vibration.

Owners of these vehicles, approximately 87,000, should expect to receive a notification by first class mail.

Once the vehicle has been expected, if necessary, the dealer should replace the brake booster pump assembly at no cost to the customer.

For more information, customers can call the Toyota Customer Experience at 1-800-331-4331, or visit www.toyota.com/recall. Lexus Customer Satisfaction’s number is 1-800-255-3987 or visit www.lexus.com/recall.
