New Toyota Recall 2010: List of Models Affected

We have another Toyota Recall to tell you about now, as it has been confirmed that the company are recalling a number of their Corolla models, due to a problem involving the engine, which could cause cars to stall.

As reported from LATimes, Toyota will be recalling their Corolla models, as well as Toyota Matrix vehicles. These models alone make up a recall of over 1 million vehicles, but Toyota are also recalling 200,000 Pontiac Vibe models which were built by Toyota and General Motors.

All models recalled are due to the same problem, and it is to do with engine control modules which Toyota say may not have been manufactured properly. As a result of the defective electronic component, cars could stall and increase the risk of serious injury whilst on the road.

According to Toyota, three accidents have been reported as a result of the engine modules, with one accident leading to minor injuries.

If you have a 2005 to 2008 Toyota model listed above, you should contact Toyota immediately. Full story over at the LATimes.
