brake defect could affect more than 1 million Toyota Priuses.

Now, a new lawsuit claims Toyota won't fix it until it is too late.

It was a Toyota dealer who first complained to federal regulators. The owner of a California Toyota dealership said he thought it was wrong that he was having to tell customers Toyota won’t fix a faulty brake part.

The problem with the Priuses is you could push down the brake pedal, and the car won't stop.

Toyota tells WSB-TV it can't comment on the lawsuit because it hasn't seen it yet.

It has extended the warranty for the brake component to 10 years and 150,000 miles.
