Toyota is recalling 1.9 million hybrid Prius cars globally for a software glitch that could cause them to stall. The company said Wednesday that 713,000 vehicles in North America were being recalled. No accidents or injuries have been reported related to the problem. The software could cause transistors to become damaged, causing warnings lights to go off, driving power to be reduced or the car to stop. The recalled vehicles were manufactured between March 2009 and February 2014. The Japanese automaker suffered massive recalls starting in 2009, affecting more than 14 million vehicles for problems including floor mats, gas pedals and brakes.
