Toyota Issues Massive Recall for Brake Light and Airbag Failures

By Car Accident Help on March 19, 2012

Toyota has announced two separate recalls involving nearly 700,000 vehicles. According to a report in The New York Times, almost 187,000 Venzas from 2009-2011 and Camrys from 2009, as well as 495,000 Tacoma pickups from 2005-2009, have been recalled for safety concerns. Officials with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) say that the Venza and Camry models have issues with silicone grease that may cause the brake light to fail. The vehicles may also not start correctly or shift out of “park,” which could increase the risk of a car accident. The grease issues may be linked to grease from the gloves of assembly line workers from one of their plants. The Tacoma vehicles are being recalled because of safety concerns regarding airbags that fail to deploy in a crash.

Toyota is not the only car company that has recently issued recalls on their potentially defective and dangerous vehicles. Nissan has recently recalled about 23,500 Quest minivans from model years 2011 and 2012 because of issues with the fuel-pump control module that has resulted in engine stalling. Chrysler has recently recalled 210,000 of its 2004 and 2005 Jeep Liberty SUVs over concerns that a rear suspension component could rust and break.

It is the responsibility of all auto manufacturers to provide a reasonably safe product. When the design of a vehicle is defective or mistakes are made during the assembly process, the consumer is put at great risk of suffering an injury. In such cases, injured victims or families of deceased victims can seek compensation from the manufacturer of the defective vehicle.

The experienced product liability attorneys in Oklahoma at Maples Law Firm help injured victims of defective products receive compensation for their medical bills, time away from work, and other related losses. Please contact us at (888) 226-6159 if a defective product has injured you.
