Toyota Corolla Recall: 2008 – 2010 Models

By Peter Chubb - Apr 26, 2010

Toyota in Brazil have now agreed to recall a number of its Corolla vehicles manufactured from April 2008 – 2010. This is in conjunction with the sudden acceleration problems that have affected other models – this is the first time that the Brazilian arm of the Japanese automaker has issued a recall due to this problem.

According to RAC, it is not known how many vehicles will be affected by this recall, but they did explain that more than 55,000 Toyota Corollas were sold last year. So the number of recalls could hit near the 100,000 mark, depending on sales in 2008 and in 2010 so far.

We know that sudden acceleration has been a huge problem for Toyota, with a fix still ongoing. More than 8 million vehicles have been recalled – so takes a long time to get through them all. We all know how the floor mat can get in the way of the accelerator pedal and stop it from returning back to its resting position. For those who do not, here is all the latest on the Toyota recall situation.

    I just took my corolla 08 to the dealer after I got the first letter about the recall. At the entrance one of the Toyota guys told me that it was necessary to see the Warning Engine Light ON. However, the letter from Toyota specified that the ECU could be making the car to have problems during the "transmission shifting" i.e. "the transmission was shifting harshly". This was happening to me and from time to time it felt that the transmission was hitting my car and the Engine Light was OFF. So they tested the car and changed the ECU computer. Now, my car runs good.
