DETROIT (AP) - Toyota is preparing a plan to repair the brakes on thousands of hybrid Prius cars.
In a message sent Friday night to dealers, Toyota said it will disclose the decision early next week.
More than 100 drivers have said their brakes momentarily failed when they were driving 2010 Priuses over bumpy roads.
Toyota blames a software glitch and says it has already fixed vehicles in production. But it's still deciding how to handle repairs on 270,000 Priuses that were sold in the U.S. and Japan starting last year. The company could announce a full-fledged safety recall or simply ask owners to bring their vehicles in for repairs.
The problem isn't related to separate recalls involving Toyotas with defective gas pedals.
