A Look at Toyota's Recall of 6.39 Million Vehicles
April 10, 2014 (AP)
By The Associated Press
 
AP_logo_update_20130709.gif

 

Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it's recalling 6.39 million vehicles globally for various safety defects. The total rises to 6.76 million if vehicles with multiple recalls — like the Yaris subcompact — are counted for each recall.

No one has been injured due to the recalls, but the company says two fires have been linked to a defective engine starter.

This is a breakdown of the vehicles and defects involved.

PROBLEM: Electric connections can be damaged when the steering wheel is turned, which could deactivate the air bags.

VEHICLES INVOLVED: 3.5 million. Includes the RAV4, Vanguard, Corolla, Matrix, Yaris, Land Cruiser Prado, Highlander, Tacoma, Reiz, Camry, Hilux, Fortuner, Innova and Pontiac Vibe (which was developed for General Motors by Toyota). Vehicles were made between June 2004 and December 2010.

PLACES SOLD: Mostly North America, but also Japan, China, Europe, India and elsewhere.

PROBLEM: Spring in the front seat rails could break, so the seat may not lock into position.

VEHICLES INVOLVED: 2.32 million. Includes the Ist, Vitz, Belta, Ractis, Scion xD, Urban Cruiser and Yaris built between January 2005 and August 2010.

PLACES SOLD: Mostly Japan, but also North America, Europe, China and elsewhere.

PROBLEM: Weld that connects the steering column bracket to the instrument panel can break if the steering wheel is repeatedly turned with full force. The steering column may tilt out of position, but the driver can still control the car.

VEHICLES INVOLVED: 760,000. Includes the Ist, Vitz, Belta, Ractis, Scion xD, Urban Cruiser and Yaris built between September 2005 and February 2009.

PLACES SOLD: Mostly Europe, but also Japan.

PROBLEM: Faulty windshield wiper motors.

VEHICLES INVOLVED: 160,000. Includes the Ist, Vitz, Belta and Ractis built between September 2005 and February 2008.

PLACES SOLD: Japan.

PROBLEM: Metallic particles may accumulate in the engine starter's circuitry, increasing the risk of a fire.

VEHICLES INVOLVED: 20,000. Includes the Porte, Spade, Corolla Axio, Corolla Fielder, Auris, Ractis and Subaru Trezia (developed by Toyota for Subaru). Vehicles were built between March 2012 and August 2013.

PLACES SOLD: Japan and Hong Kong.

Doesn't mean you drive a faster car, you can travel at 70kph on a clear lane 1 with a train of cars behind you...

It is almost a year since Honda announced the Takata airbag issue and now there is news again on the recall regarding Takata airbags fitted on Honda (Fit), Daihatsu (Mira), Toyota (Corolla 3/2003 - 11/2007) and Nissan.

 

http://www.nytimes.c...&pgtype=article

 

Has anyone been informed of the recall by the ADs and LTA?

 

Is there a monitoring system to inform owners who bought in the resale market or PIs?

Wha Toyota founders must be turning in their graves that the younger generation Toyoda family has allowed their brand trademark reliability to go down to such standards till 6.5mil cars need to be re-called!! 

 

Seems like these days, quality is compromised for more $ profits.

Shame on the once mighty Toyota brand!!

  • TOKYO: Toyota Motor Corp said on Wednesday it was recalling around 340,000 of its latest Prius gasoline hybrid model in Japan and overseas to fix a parking brake issue.

The recall covers models produced between October 2015 and October 2016, and affects around 210,000 vehicles in Japan and 92,000 in North America, Toyota said, adding that the balance would be recalled in Europe, Australia and other regions.

No accidents have been reported in Japan in connection with the issue, a Toyota spokeswoman said, while declining to comment on whether any accidents had occurred overseas.

Truly they are responsible.  In January this year I recevied a letter from BM informing me to make an appointment to fix the airbag problem.  But since my car was due to expired in May, I just simply ignored it.
