Breaking: Toyota recalling 1.53 million cars

Article by Christian A., on October 21, 2010

Toyota announced the recall of about 1.53 million Avalons as well as other vehicles globally, due to the fact that these cars have problems with the brake master cylinder seal and fuel pump wiring. According to the manufacturer, most of the recalled vehicles are found in the United States and Japan.

This announcement comes after Toyota announced the recall of 1.3 million Corolla and Matrix cars in the United States and Canada, due to a defective engine control module that could cause vehicles to stall.

This means that Toyota recalled an impressive 14 million vehicles in the past year, most of them for unintended acceleration. In the United States, Toyota will recall 740,000 Avalon, Highlander, Lexus GS300, IS250 and IS350 cars in order to replace the brake master cylinder seal.

Regarding the other markets, Toyota still has to decide whether to file an official recall. Apparently, the cars subject to the repairs are sold worldwide, including in Europe, China, South America, Africa and Oceania.

The good news is that now accidents or injuries were reported. In Japan, Toyota says that almost 600,000 vehicles spanning 11 models including the high-end Crown sedan and Lexus IS and GS models were subject to the recalls. [via autonews - sub. required]
