Product • Honda Portable Generators

Problem • The generator's fuel hose can leak, posing fire and burn hazards.

Vehicle • Toyota Prius 2004-2009

Problem • The affected vehicles have a steering intermediate extension shaft assembly built with metal splines that complete the connection from the steering wheel to the steering gear. These splines may have been manufactured with an insufficient hardness. Over time, the splines may wear and eventually fail resulting in a loss of steering ability. Owners also may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
