Toyota Recalls Millions of Vehicles for Fire Risk

By Car Accident Help on October 15, 2012

Toyota Motor Corporation has announced a global auto recall of 7.43 million vehicles because of a potential fire hazard. According to a CNN Money report, the driver’s side power window switches on some models were defectively assembled. Officials say the auto recall affects approximately 2.5 million vehicles in the United States. Vehicles included in this defective part recall include some Corolla, Camry, Highlander, Matrix, Tundra, RAV4, and Yaris models. Owners of the potentially dangerous vehicles will be notified by mail later this month.

There have been a number of recent Toyota recalls that resulted from defective design and manufacturing defects. One recent recall involved mistakes made during the assembly of vehicles. The nuts on the rear suspension of these defective vehicles were not tightened properly. These defects resulted in nine crashes and three minor injuries. To fix the issue, Toyota recalled 760,000 Toyota RAV4s from model year 2010 and 2011 as well as 18,000 Lexus HS 250h’s from the year 2010.

Auto manufacturers have a legal obligation to provide safe products. When a vehicle is defectively designed or assembled, the consumer is put at risk. When an accident occurs as the result of a defective auto, the manufacturer can be held accountable for the losses suffered by the victim. Unfortunately, auto manufacturers fight any and all claims made against their company to protect their reputation and bottom-line.

The experienced Oklahoma Toyota recall lawyers at the Maples Law Firm know how to hold auto manufacturers accountable for the injuries and damages caused by their defective vehicles. If you or a loved one has been affected by one of the recent Toyota auto recalls, please call our offices at (888) 226-6159 to discuss your legal rights and options.
