Toyota Recalls Nearly 900,000 Cars Due to Airbag Defect

Japanese maker’s third major recall in little more than a month.

by on Oct.17, 2013

The Toyota Camry, the best-selling passenger car in the U.S., is affected by the latest in a series of Toyota recalls.

Toyota Motor Co.  is recalling another 885,000 vehicles worldwide, the latest in a series of major safety-related actions this time caused by electrical problems that could prevent airbags from deploying in the event of a collision.

The vast majority of the vehicles covered by the latest recall – a mix of sedans and crossovers – were sold in the United States, according to Toyota, a total of 803,000 of the products. Within the past month, Toyota has recalled nearly 1.5 million other vehicles due a mix of additional problems.

The announcement comes just days after the maker won a critical victory in a California court in connection with the unintended acceleration flap that led to the recall of more than 10 million Toyota vehicles and has so far led to the payback of several billion dollars in settlements and jury verdicts.

Toyota is recalling the Venza again.

While Toyota sales in the U.S. are trending up with the market, the Japanese auto giant can’t seem to shake the recall bug that’s haunted it for the past two years.

Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. has just announced it is recalling nearly 700,000 cars and trucks due to a variety of potential safety-related problems.  The recall comes barely a month after federal regulators opened an investigation into reports of fires in the driver’s side door of the maker’s popular Camry sedan and RAV-4 crossover.

In addition, certain 2005 to early 2009 Tacoma pickups will be recalled to replace the steering wheel spiral cable assembly. Approximately 495,000 Tacoma vehicles are covered by that service action.
