Toyota Prius recalled

Toyota has recalled the current-generation Prius, over concerns about the engine wire harness. According to the company, the harness connected to the Power Control Unit could come into contact with the connector cover and wear over time, creating the risk of an electrical short. If the issue generates enough heat, there's a risk of fire. A total of 795 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Five controversial car designs of 2016: Help us decide, and win!

(That said, we always find a way...) Styling, though? That's a whole other beast. It's also one of our greatest sources of debate, both within the CarAdvice offices and right here in the comments section of our reviews and news articles.
