Toyota Recalls Prius Hybrids Due to Stalling While Driving and Other Toyota Models Due to Defective Airbags

The Japanese automaker, Toyota, announced that it will recall more than 2.4 million hybrid cars over a defect that could cause crashes. This recall comes in the wake of another recall made by Toyota in September 2018 that recalled more than one million hybrid cars globally after uncovering a technical problem that could cause fires. The Japanese car giant Toyota has sold more than 12 million hybrid gasoline-electric vehicles globally, including the Prius, since 1997.

Toyota Seat Belt Recall

Toyota, already troubled with the 24 million Takata car airbag recall, is now issuing a recall in nearly 3 million sports utility vehicles over another safety issue. Toyota crash studies have shown that in serious accidents the seat belts of the second row seat could come in contact with the seat's metal frame and be severed, resulting in a failure to restrain any passengers against momentum.

Toyota Seatbelt Recall

Toyota recalled nearly three million RAV4 sport utility vehicles worldwide. This recall includes 1.33 million units in North America, 625,000 in Europe, 434 in China, and 177,000 in Japan. Uncovering a defect in the rear seatbelts resulted in the automaker's recall. In the event of a frontal collision, the seatbelts could be damaged or completely severed, leaving passengers unprotected. The automaker said in an email that the lap-shoulder seatbelts in the vehicles' second-row seats could come into contact with the metal seat cushion frame causing it to cut off. "There is a possibility that, in the event of a high-speed frontal collision, the seatbelt webbing could contact a portion of the metal cushion frame, become cut and separate," stated the company. "If this occurs, the seatbelt may not properly restrain the occupant, which could increase the risk of injury to the occupant."

Toyota Recalls 6.5 Million Vehicles Worldwide

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Toyota Break Failure Investigation

Over six years after Toyota produced the 2007 and 2008 Toyota Camry hybrid sedan, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has opened a probe into the intermittent brake failure experienced by some of the owners.

Ford and Toyota Announce Extensive Recalls

According to CCN Money, Toyota recently announced two recalls involving 369,000 vehicles to fix problems associated with its Highlander Hybrid SUVs and Lexus IS 350 models. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a consequence of the faults, but in those Hybrid SUVs recalled, the hybrid system can overheat, triggering a warning, and in some cases causing the vehicle to stop unexpectedly. The recall involving Lexus vehicles has also been found to unexpectedly stop the vehicle, due to loose bolts in the valve timing device.

Toyota Issues Second Recall of Over 800,000 Vehicles

Thirteen months after issuing the first recall, Toyota has issued a second recall of the same RAV4 SUVs and Lexus sedans. Over 800,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada are affected by this second recall.
