Toyota to Recall 1.67 Million Cars, is Yours on the List?
Toyota recalled a lot of vehicle in recent years, and it seems that we’ll see some more recalls from the Japanese car manufacturer in the near future.
Namely, Toyota Motor Corp revealed a couple of days ago that it would recall a total of 1.67 million of vehicles all over the world in order to separate three defects, including a faulty brake master cylinder that could disrupt the brake’s performance.
Toyota said that they don’t have any information about potential crashes, injures or deaths caused by those defects, but they still want to be sure it won’t happen in the future. Around 1.05 million of vehicles will be recalled from Japan, and more than 600,000 worldwide.
This recall will cover Toyota’s models including Majesta, Crown, Noah, Voxy, Corolla Rumion and Auris, as well as some Lexus models.
Another thing that points out to Toyota’s problems is the fact that Toyota recalled 6.39 million vehicles globally in April in its second-largest recall announcement in history. A couple of months later, Japanese giant recalled almost 2.3 million vehicles all around the world because of the faulty in airbag inflators.
In the most recent recall, about 802,000 Crown Majesta, Crown, Noah and Voxy models manufactured in the period between 2007 and 2012 will be recalled in order to replace a rubber seal ring in brake master cylinder to prevent fluid from leaking. Brake buster will be automatically replaced, if fluid has already leaked.
Toyota’s second recall of around 760,000 vehicles worldwide, including 423,000 vechiles in the US, will fix damaged fuel delivery pipes. If those pipes remain unchanged, a fire could be caused through a fuel leak.
And that’s not all, Toyota plans to recall 190,000 front-wheel drive Corolla Rumion and Auris manufactured between 2006 and 2014, because these models appeared not to be able to fix a defective fuel evaporative emission control unit.
Toyota is one of the greatest car manufacturers in the world, but this huge amount of recalls will definitely have some negative effects to the company. So staff from Toyota definitely should think a little bit about their manufacturing policy.
