UPDATE: Toyota Prius Zipcar Back in Service

EDIT: (Formerly titled Toyota Prius Zipcar Out of Service)

The Toyota Prius Zipcar is back in service and should be returned to the Zipcar lot very soon. We were asked to take the car off the road because it was believed to be a part of the Toyota recall. We have just been informed that it has not been recalled and is fully functional and safe.

If you had signed up to use the car and were unable to do so because of this notice, please call Zipcar’s Member Services at 866-4ZIPCAR. I’ve been informed that if you explain the situation, you should be able to work out a refund. If for some reason this turns out not to be the case, please contact the WSA at wsa@wesleyan.edu and we will find a solution.

[And thanks to the alum who corrected me on brake! Apparently my mind is on a beach somewhere…]

The WSA and Public Safety have recently learned that our Toyota Priusis is part of the Toyota recall. Due to potential brake safety issues, we cannot have this car on the road until it is repaired.

We are currently in the process of identifying those individuals who have rented the car over the next few days and will be in touch personally. These individuals should make alternative plans unless otherwise notified. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

    The prius has its own issue at the moment. It involves the cruise control instead of the accelerator.

    You might want to change “break” there to “brake.” “Break safety issues” probably refers more to excessive drinking in Cancun.
