Toyota Issues New Recall for Brake Problems; Honda Joins Recall

By Car Accident Help on October 29, 2010

Earlier this month, Toyota announced a new recall of over 1.5 million vehicles for brake problems, according to CNN.com.

Toyota is recalling 740,000 Lexuses, Avalons, and Highlanders in the United States, and over 1.5 million internationally. Honda also announced the recall of an undisclosed number of Acura RL and Honda Odyssey vehicles for brake problems.

According to Toyota, the recall occurred because it is possible for a small amount of brake fluid to leak from the brake master cylinder. This leak could cause the brake light to come on. If the problem is not repaired, the driver will notice the brakes are “soft” and eventually the brakes will be unable to stop the vehicle. Toyota claims the problems originate from using non-Toyota brake fluid.

Since the second half of 2009, Toyota has recalled more than eight million motor vehicles. Most were from unintended acceleration issues. The acceleration problems have been linked to an unknown number of deaths, which may be as high as 100. Toyota paid a $16.4 million fine earlier this year for delaying a recall of its vehicles with the acceleration problems.

Car manufacturers have a duty to manufacture safe cars, as well as to recall cars if they are discovered to have safety problems. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a safety defect in an automobile, contact the Oklahoma Toyota recall injury attorneys at the Maples Law Firm. Our attorneys are experienced in helping accident victims get the compensation to which they are entitled. Call us today at 888-429-0609.
