NHTSA Report: Toyota Lexus Recall List and Details

NHTSA Report: Toyota Lexus Recall List and Details

Yesterday we brought you news about the Toyota Crown and Lexus recall affecting 270,000 cars worldwide, including 138,000 vehicles in the U.S. We told how customers will be contacted by Toyota about the recall with further details (see here).

If you want to know more about the details with a complete list of all the models affected, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has now posted the official recall list (see here). This information comes to us via USA Today.com.

This will give you all particulars you may be looking for including more about the valve spring problem, affecting engines which can then suddenly stall. It includes models, manufacture dates and VIN numbers. Also rather shockingly USA Today tells us that Toyota initially noticed the defect in 2008 and altered specs for new build cars, but did not issue a recall at the time for ones already being driven.

For more on this go to USAToday.com. We’d be interested to hear what you think about the latest news that Toyota knew of the problem 2 years ago but didn’t issue a recall at the time, so why not let us know your thoughts on this.

    There is not much to commnt. This is a further example of:

    1) Stalling, denying, reportring when there is no more way to hide it
    2) Failure of the All-Japanese design department.

    There is not much to commnt. This is a further example of:

    1) Stalling, denying, reporting only when there is no more way to hide it, spending instead billions in advertising and influencing analysts and authorities
    2) Failure of the All-Japanese design department.to implement adequate components design and specify adequate materials. Such is the origin of sll meeaningful TOYOTA recalls.

    3) Failure of quality control, seemingly not capable to detect the flaws of low quality Chinese subcontractors. This being a consequence that this personnel were used to work with generally reliable Japanese firms, where the control was much easier

    Up to now, it seems that other Japanese manufacturers are not suffering a collapse as TOYOTA does. Probably, because
    their internal organization is not so outdated as TOYOTA's. The latter seem to have swallowed the hype which for the last years they fed to the public, creating irrational and fanatical supporters
    But experience shows that irrational love convert sitself rapidly in hate once the illusions are squashed!
