- Another Toyota Recall Initiated
Toyota was known around the world for years as an auto manufacturer that produced economical, safe and reliable vehicles. Unfortunately for them and for millions of consumers, this reputation has been all but destroyed over the past year because of a series of Toyota product recalls that have been announced for various problems that have arisen. As a result of these announcements and because of serious injuries that have occurred, Toyota recall lawyers have been helping those harmed seek justice. Based on recent news, it appears as if legal help will be needed once again.
The Latest Toyota Recall for Steering Problems
Toyota has announced yet another recall of several hundred thousand vehicles, and this announcement was made because it was discovered that the models affected have problems with their steering functionality. Specifically, the models that are being recalled have a defective steering lock bar could break under certain conditions, and this defect could lead to serious auto accidents as a result because drivers will not be able to control these vehicles. This comes on the heels of at least 8 million other vehicles being affected by the Toyota recalls that date to last year, and it also comes just days after the company was served with a subpoena from a federal grand jury that is looking into other steering problems with Toyota vehicles.
Specifics of the Most Recent Toyota Recall
Specifically, more than 400,000 vehicles are affected by this Toyota recall, and they include:
- 373,000 Toyota Avalons manufactured between 2000 and 2004
- 39,000 Lexus LX 470 vehicles manufactured between 2003 and 2007
Toyota will be sending notices to owners of these vehicles in the next few weeks directing them to the nearest Toyota dealership so that consumers can obtain the necessary repairs. To date, the company has stated that no accidents, injuries or fatalities have occurred with the vehicles affected by this Toyota recall.
