Genera Corporation is recalling certain aftermarket replacement tail lights, model 11-6468-00 (driver-side), and model 11-6467-00 (passenger-side), sold for use on 2012-2013 Toyota Prius V vehicles.

The brake light and tail light circuits are switched causing the brake lights to be illuminated continuously until the brake pedal is pressed, when the brake lights will go out.

The reversed tail lamp function reduces the ability to warn other motorists of the driver's intentions, increasing the risk of a crash.

Genera will notify all affected owners and provide replacement aftermarket tail lamps, free of charge.

For further information, contact Genera toll-free at 888-963-9888. Note: This recall is being conducted by Genera Corporation, not by Toyota Motor Corporation.
