Toyota has just announced the recall of 1.67 million cars. The famous company is going to recall these vehicles worldwide for three separate defects, it has been revealed.
The defects for which the popular car maker has announced these recalls include a faulty brake master cylinder, which may lead to problems with the fuel delivery systems, but not only. The issue can also make stopping more difficult. Most of the vehicles recalled at this point are in Japan.
The car models affected by the new recall are Toyota Crown Majesta, Crown, Noah, Voxy, Corolla Rumion, but also Auris and Lexus. Of course, car owners will be notified by Toyota and will receive all the instructions on what they need to do. The repairs will be made by the famous company free of costs. Toyota claimed that they are not aware of any crashes, fires or injuries linked to the defects for which the new recall was issued
Toyota has been linked to many recalls this year. In fact, the popular company has recalled no less than 6.39 million cars in April, which has actually been the second biggest recall announced by Toyota until now. The popular car maker announced a second big recall only two months later, when it decided to call in no less than 2.3 million cars. Toyota claimed that these vehicles might have faulty airbag inflators, which surely needed the repairs fast, for safety.
Car makers have been under a huge pressure this year, mostly due to the scandal that GM caused. General Motors failed to issue the needed recall on the ignition switches problem, which led to no less than 13 deaths. The popular car maker recalled over 30 million cars and trucks this year. This is one of the biggest recalls in history.
Toyota has been involved in a scandal, too, back in 2009. The car maker’s reputation, but also its sales, were affected. Apparently, Toyota and all car makers are extremely preoccupied with the safety of those who use their vehicles. And in fact safety is what should come first when being on the road.
