Toyota Issues Another Recall for Over 1 Million Vehicles Worldwide
Law360 reports that Toyota Motor Corp. will recall 1.67 million vehicles worldwide after identifying defects that make the cars unsafe to drive without repairs, including faulty brakes and fuel components.
A Toyota spokesperson said that the recall will affect over 1 million vehicles in Japan, as well as another 615,000 in other areas of the world. Across the globe, Toyota has identified 759,000 vehicles that have problems with the fuel delivery pipes, as well as 802,000 with brake issues. In particular, 423,000 of the vehicles will affect car buyers in the United States.
This is the latest recall for Toyota, who just last month recalled approximately 690,000 Tacoma trucks due to faulty rear suspension systems and 20,000 other vehicles (including Avalon, Camry, Highlander, Sienna and Lexus RX) due to fuel delivery pipe problems in the engine compartment. Earlier in April of this year, Toyota issued a recall for 6.4 million vehicles worldwide due to defective cable assemblies.
