Is Your Toyota Car on the Recall List?

By Posted 29 Jan 2010, 10:38

When looking back, who would have thought that a company like Toyota would ever have to issue a recall on their vehicles? Well it seems like it becoming a common occurrence, back in September the Japanese automaker had to issue a recall due to an accelerator problem, well that problem is back once again. So is Toyota car on the recall list?

Last year the recall was due to the gas pedal sticking to the floor matt, this time the fault is due to a worn pedal mechanism. The problem was spotted by a number of factory workers, this is what sparked a further 2.3 million cars being added to the growing number of recalls.

This is a very serious problem as the accelerator can stick down when depressed, some times staying down and more often than not they return back to the normal position very slowly. Toyota has now suspended sales of eight of their 2010 models, which we have for you below.

  • 2005-2010 Avalon
  • 2007-2010 Tundra
  • 2008-2010 Sequoia
  • 2009-2010 Corolla
  • 2009-2010 Matrix
  • 2009-2010 RAV4
  • 2010 Highlander
  • Certain 2007-2010 Camry

We do not want to start panicking as the chances of this happening to you are very rare, but you will need to contact your local dealer for more information. If you think that you are affected by this problem then ring the Toyota’s customer hot line at 800-331-4331.

    I am of course concerned for my safety and that of my passengers while in my vehicle (2008 Hybrid Camry). I understand certain Camry’s were not included, but cannot find out this information. Does your agency have this info?
    I am angry that Toyota kept advertising their vehicles and were aware of the ‘suspected problems’ for a few years now. How could they continue to advertise & sell as if nothing was wrong without acknowledging ths problem? I would not hahve purchased my vehicle if I had known this. I wish I could just drop off my vehicle and get all my money back that I have invested thus far.

    I have a 2007 Verso 2.2D bought new which has now done 48K. At 30K the supplier carried out a ECU reflash which, reluctantly, Toyota confirmed was to extend valve/injector life. This resulted in a loss of torque and a 10/15% reduction in MPG.
    Since the 40K service there has been a further deterioration in performance which has become "lumpy" and there is blue smoke when restarting 2/3 hrs. after a run. There is also a "roaring" noise and, just recently, the road speed has started to pick up without any any input from me when in 6th gear – very disconcerting.
    It's in at the dealers now and they have just called to say they are going to replace two "sticking" injectors and flush out the exhaust. THEY NEED THE CAR FOR A FULL WEEK TO DO THIS, a job I could do myself in a day!!. I find this very, very suspicious and believe that there is far more wrong than they are owning up to.
    Anyone else had the similar experiences??
