    Well, February was certainly an interesting time on PriusChat. First we had Toyota's recall that didn't involve the Prius, then we had Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak believing he found a problem in the 2010 Prius (he didn't), then finally we had a recall on the 2010 Prius ABS brake system. The fallout from all of this has caused considerable discussion on the PriusChat forums.
    So, what did you miss in February? Probably a lot!
