Toyota announces new large-scale recall

Thursday, October 21, 2010By Richard Alexander

Toyota Motor Corp announced a new recall for 1.66 million Avalon and other vehicles, mostly in Japan and the United States, the latest large-scale recall to plague the world's largest automaker.

Todays announcement comes on the heals of a recall in Canada and the U.S. of 1.3 million Corolla and Matrix cars carrying defective engine control modules that could cause the vehicles to stall.

Toyota had already recalled over 10 million vehicles in the past year, mostly for unintended acceleration, tarnishing its reputation for quality.

Toyota said it will be recalling 740,000 Avalon, Highlander, Lexus GS300, IS250 and IS350 cars in the United States to replace a brake master cylinder seal. There is a possibility that brake fluid could leak from the master cylinder, causing the brake warning lamp to light up.

In Japan, Toyota is recalling about 600,000 vehicles spanning 11 models including the high-end Crown sedan, either for the master cylinder seal or defective fuel pump wiring or both. It is recalling 60,000 vehicles in China.

In a separate case, Toyota said it was recalling 134,000 Crown and Reiz sedans in China to fix a faulty component in the rear disk brakes that could rust and affect the cars' braking performance.

To date no accidents have been reported from the three defects, Toyota said.
