Cars Recall October 2010: Toyota, Honda, BMW and Nissan Lists

This week has been a pretty busy month as far as car recalls goes. We had as many as four major recalls announced, and we have a full recap of the problems and models affected in case you missed anything.

You could argue that BMW has been the busiest of the companies mentioned above, as they actually announced two separate recalls in October, with one to do with power-braking issues, and the most recent one over faulty fuel pumps. You can read a recap of which models were affected by visiting our previous reports in the relevant links above.

Towards the end of October, Toyota then announced a 1.5 million vehicle recall due to braking problems which affected models such as the Toyota Crown, Mark X, Lexus IS, Avalon, Highlander and Lexus RX.

Shortly after that, Honda also issued a recall to do with the same problems as Toyota, but their recall only affected specific models in the Acura RL and Honda Odyssey.

That then brings us up to speed with the last recall of this month, and the honor goes to Nissan, as the company announced their third-biggest recall in history, with over 2.1 million vehicles recalled due to engine problems. Their recall is also a global one and it affects popular models such as the Nissan March, Micra and Cube.

How do you feel about all these recalls? More importantly, do you have a vehicle which is affected by any of the problems mentioned above? If so, get in touch with us.
