Another Round of Toyota Recalls

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on October 17, 2014

On Wednesday, October 15th, Toyota Motor Company announced a recall of nearly 2 million vehicles. The company, based in Japan, said that it would recall 1.67 million vehicles world-wide. According to the company, some vehicles experience brake failure or poor brake performance. This is due to faults in the master cylinder of the braking system, and other related, unspecified defects.

As of Wednesday, the company said it did not know if there were crashes due to the defect, nor deaths nor other injuries. There presently have not been any lawsuits associated with the defect, and it is unclear on how long the company has known about the faults in the braking system.

Another defect included in the recall includes problems with the fuel delivery system. There are fuel pipes that could corrode or make some of the gaskets leak. This also affects the fuel sensor and could cause error messages to the user. In one possible scenario, the fuel lines could overheat and cause fire in the engine.

This recall will include over 1 million vehicles in Japan alone, as well as over 600,000 vehicles from Europe, the United States, South America and other countries. This is one of the largest voluntary recalls in the company’s history, and comes of the heels of the GM recall scandal. GM was aware of defects in their vehicles for many years, as well as injuries and deaths due to the defects, and yet they did not recall the vehicles until outside pressure forced them to do so.

The Toyota recall includes many Toyota models as well as Lexus models, which Toyota now produces. These models include the Crown, Noah, Voxy, Corolla Rumion, Auris and Crown Majesta under the Toyota umbrella. Many of these were not sold in the United States. There are 400,000 vehicles include in the Lexus recall in the USA, including models LS sedan 2007-2010; GS sedan 2006 through 2011; IS compact 2006 through 2011; 2010 IS C; and IS-F vehicles 2008 through 2010.
