Toyota Recalls Again

Posted by - Admin / April 17th, 2010

Toyota has suffered a number of setbacks in recent months—a spate of recalls over the last couple of months have been especially damaging to their reputations. Apparently their troubles aren’t quite over yet:

The latest batch, while not nearly as dangerous, adds to Toyota’s mounting recall number, which has mushroomed to more than 8 million cars and trucks due to sticky pedals and concerns of sudden unintended acceleration.

Earlier this week, Toyota temporarily suspended sales of the Lexus GX 460 SUV, after the vehicle received a safety warning in Consumer Reports magazine.

I guess Consumer Reports’ safety rating isn’t as good as it used to be, eh? But seriously, eight million cars and trucks is a pretty impressive number.
