Yesterday, Toyota announced yet another recall; this time the company is recalling certain Toyota Prius vehicles. Toyota is recalling the vehicles because of problems with the electronic power steering. About 52,000 cars will be recalled in the United States and over 100,000 worldwide. As a Weston Car Accident Lawyer it is good to see Toyota being proactive with its newest product defects. Luckily, as of now it seems that there has been only one minor accident because of the power steering problem, but it has not been confirmed yet.
The recall affects Toyota Prius models from 2001 through 2003. As a Weston Personal Injury Attorney, I can only hope that the news of this recall reaches vehicle owners before they experience any serious malfunctioning. As we all know, a vehicle is an extremely dangerous instrumentality, and much more so when it is not functioning as originally intended.
On a related topic, it has been widely reported that Toyota will face several car accident lawsuits and personal injury lawsuits going forward. These lawsuits stem from the other major Toyota recalls, such as the sudden acceleration issues. As I mentioned, as a Weston Car Accident Attorney it is reassuring that this recall seems to be much less catastrophic than the previous Toyota recalls. It will be very fortunate if all of the affected vehicles from this recall can be repaired without any further incidents.
