Toyota Recalls Nearly 1.7 Million Vehicles

Posted on in Motor Vehicle Accidents

Toyota is recalling “nearly 1.7 million vehicles around the world for various defects that may cause fuel leakage - the latest in quality control woes for the Japanese automaker.” (Y Kageyama, AP Business, 1/25). Unfortunately for Toyota, this is yet another problem that the manufacturer must face.

The recall affects several models including “the IS and GS Lexus luxury models in North America and the Avensis sedan and station wagon models in Europe.” According to Toyota, no accidents directly related to the defects have been reported but they have received nearly 300 complaints world wide.

As a car and truck accident lawyer in Chicago, I always encourage consumers to act quickly and monitor any vehicles recalls that may affect their vehicles.
