On Wednesday, October 10, 2012, Toyota recalled over 7 million vehicles worldwide to fix faulty window switches that can cause fires. This is not the first major recall involving Toyota.
It seems the more Toyota tries to improve its image after several safety issues involving their product, the more problems they have. Toyota used to have a reputation for manufacturing safe, as well as economical vehicles, and over the past few years that reputation has dramatically changed.
In 2009 and 2010 Toyota recalled many of their vehicles due to safety issues involving sudden acceleration that led to many crashes.
Toyota seemed to be on the road to recovery until this recent recall involving cars, trucks and SUV’s produced from 2005 through 2010. If you, the consumer, receive a recall notice, do not hesitate to bring your vehicle in for service. For other links to Toyota recalls:
