HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Japanese car maker Toyota is recalling more than 400,000 Prius and Lexus Hybrids nationwide -- here in Hawaii the impact is not that bad. Just 463 cars will have to be fixed.

The recall includes both the 2010 Prius and the Lexus HS -250. Toyota says it a software problem --- they have to adjust the braking system after Toyota received hundred of complaints about a delay when the brakes are pressed.

Local dealership Servo Toyota Honolulu is doing what they can to restore consumer confidence.

It's been a tough three weeks for the Japanese car maker, they have had to halt the sale of 8 of there most popular models, and they are still in the process of fixing millions of sticky gas pedals.

President of Servco Toyota, Rick Ching says, "Our first concern is the safety of our customers. We know we have inconvenienced them with the recalls. Our goal is to get them through the recall as quickly as possible."

Local Toyota dealerships have pulled all the new 2010 Prius and Lexus models off their lots, and they will not sell them until the new software is installed.

Servco Toyota Honolulu is already in the process of taking appointment to fix the Prius and Lexus vehicles impacted by this latest recall.
