Toyota Issues Recall on 2.8 Million Cars Globally

Toyota issues another recall

Another month, another Toyota recall. This time Toyota has announced a recall on over 2.8 million cars. The recalls have to do with two separate issues on different models including possible steering failures and water pump faults. The recall covers nine different Toyota models including the popular Corolla and Prius.

Within the UK the recall covers 75,000 cars. Europe is home to 496,000 cars covered in the recall and the United States has 670,000 affected vehicles. Within Japan there are 1.5 million vehicles covered by the recall. The recall having to do with steering issues comes from a problem of "insufficient hardness" of the steering shaft it could allow the shaft to deform if the wheel is turned forcefully at slow speed.

The problem with water pumps is in some Prius models. The faulty water pump to blow a fuse in the electricity power circuit causing the vehicle to stall. Toyota will fix both issues at no cost and will be notifying owners over the next six weeks.

Used No Illusion: Used-Car Values Mostly Unaffected by Recalls

Sep 1 2014 9:53am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Every time we see someone in a Chevy Cobalt, we resist the urge to ask them if they’ve made plans to sell it. As it turns out, those folks might still receive a decent return, as owners of these recalled cars—and many other models with highly publicized problems—aren’t dumping them en masse. According to a report from Black Book, a trade publication that estimates residual values, some Cobalts ac ...
