Transportation Department opens investigation into brake problems in 2010 Toyota Prius

WASHINGTON - Transportation Department opens investigation into brake problems in 2010 Toyota Prius.

Earlier reports confirm there's a design problem with the antilock brake system in the new Prius, which went on sale last year.

Toyota says it has corrected the design for models sold since late January. It's looking into how to inform people who had bought them earlier.

Complaints about braking problems in the third-generation Prius have been reported in both the U.S. and Japan.

The latest bad news from the Japanese automaker comes after millions of recalls for gas pedal problems on other models.
