A total of 6.39 million vehicles are being recalled by Toyota Motor Corp., a Japanese based car manufacturer. Roughly 30 models globally have been affected.

As of right now, no incidents have been linked to this recall. It covers vehicles produced from April 2004 to August 2013 and specifically mentions 27 Toyota models including the RAV4, Corolla, Matrix/Vibe, Yaris, Highlander, Tacoma, Reiz, Fortuner, Innova, Land Cruiser Prado, and Camry. The Pontiac Vibe and the Subaru Trezia are also affected.

Problems mentioned in the recall include issues with the seat rails which prevent the seat from locking in place, the bracket holding the steering column in place, and a cable attached to the air-bag module. The issues regarding the windshield-wiper motor and the starter motor fire hazard risks are said to be only problems in the Asian markets.

This recall follows the 2009 Toyota recall which covered a wide range of problems including sticky gas pedals and defective brakes. Toyota settled with the U.S. Justice Department to pay a $1.2 billion penalty for hiding these defects in their vehicles.

If you or someone you know have been injured as a result of a vehicle defect, contact an attorney at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend by calling 713-396-3964 or 1-800-594-4884.
