Toyota Recalls More than 1 Million Corolla, Lexus Vehicles

By Alpert Schreyer on January 31, 2013

The Calvert County auto product defect attorneys at Alpert Schreyer understand the wide variety of dangers that can result from any single defective part in a vehicle. As such, the latest recall by Toyota brings new concerns about the safety of vehicles that have continued to be in the spotlight during the last several years due to continued recalls.

As reported by USA Today, Toyota Motor Corporation has issued two simultaneous recalls which affect a total of more than 1 million vehicles worldwide.

Approximately 752,000 Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles manufactured between December 2001 and May 2004 are being recalled due to defects affecting the airbag control module, which could cause the airbags to go off spontaneously. An additional 141,000 vehicles sold in Canada are also part of this recall. Two crashes and 18 injuries have been reportedly caused by the defective airbags. Toyota will be recalling the vehicle shortly so that dealers can correct a problem with a faulty circuit board that can malfunction and cause the air bags or seat belt pretensioners to deploy when there hasn’t been a crash.

The second recall affects 270,000 Lexus IS vehicles from model years 2006 through 2012. This defect is due to a loose wiper arm nut that compromises the integrity of windshield wipers on the cars. In cases where the wipers are restricted by a load, such as a buildup of snow, the blades could be unable to operate. To deal with the problem, car dealers will inspect the wipers and replace them if necessary, free of charge.
