We have an update on the Toyota recall and specifically the UK recalled cars. In the last few hours, The Daily Telegraph has been able to post a news update that details just how many cars have been affected in the UK by the recent recalls.

The Telegraph is reporting the car recall has affected more than 350,000 UK vehicles in under a week due to safety fears. Over 180,000 Toyota cars were recalled due to faulty accelerator pedal concerns, and 171,372 Honda Jazz models were recalled in Britain, which was due to fears that the car could set fire.
