The Toyota recall list has been the focus of many Toyota car owners checking to see if their model of car has made the list, and while the Toyota Prius is being investigated by the US Transportation Department, it’s not been recalled yet.
Hollywood is known for scandal, and it’s still in love with the Prius. Tree-hugging celebrities like Rob Reiner, David Duchovny, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Cameron Diaz have loved the Prius for a long time. Toyota’s image has improved thanks to these celebrities, as they swap Rolls-Royces and Jaguars for an icon of green design.
According to Reuters, entertainment industry figures are happy to keep the new Prius models on the red carpet, even after the investigation into braking problems. Global Green USA is one company that provides limos for celebrities, and they plan to keep the Toyota Prius in their line-up for the 2010 Oscars.
