Typo Triggers Toyota Recall

Misprint will impact 200,000 minivans.

Toyota recalls 200,000 Sienna minivans.

It’s been a tough couple years for Toyota, the maker being slammed by safety issues as well as production shortages caused by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan last March.

But just as the maker was hoping to get things back to normal — with factories pouring out the product and Toyota’s latest line-up landing on the top of the quality charts – it seems the maker will have to recall yet another 200,000 vehicles.
