    just a rehash i think, nothing new? that dealer has been calling toyota out for years, maybe the press just caught on
    anyways, seems to be a very small % of cars here on pc.

    Looks like the 2018 Prius C was added.

    The 2018 C has been recalled to fix the DC-DC converter, which as the C&D article notes is completely unrelated to the inverter recall.

    The reason this has popped back up in the news is because arguments in the trial ended this week, and the jury is now deliberating.
