Once again the embattled Toyota motor Corporation is in the lime light – and not for positive news. Toyota Motor Corporation’s reputation, which has enjoyed unprecedented success in the United States, globally and particularly in Florida over the last three decades, is now, and once again, severely challenged by news that its Avalon and other vehicles are having problems with the break master cylinder seal, as well as with wiring with the fuel pump systems. Toyota is recalling 1.53 million Avalon models and other vehicles globally to attempt to repair these vehicles.
Toyota was in the new less than 2 months ago with a recall of 1.3 million Corollas and Matrix cars with allegedly defective engine control modules that can cause their vehicles to stall. The ramifications of a vehicle challenged with its master cylinder fuel pump or stalling issues could be catastrophic; if such failure occurred spontaneously and without notice; such as, in a scenario where the vehicle was entering an intersection and suddenly stalled in the face of oncoming traffic, or lost its ability to effectively brake or accelerate to avoid ensuing danger.
These recalls now bring Toyota’s recall efforts to more than 10 million vehicles in the past year. Toyota’s US Sales is additionally recalling over 700 thousand Avalon, Highlander, Lexus GS 300, Lexus IS 250, and Lexus IS 350 cars. Florida Toyota owners should be proactive in the face of this danger and contact their dealerships to determine if their vehicle is subject to any of the recent recalls or if there is any other concern with the safe maintenance and operation of their vehicle.
