Another Recall from Toyota Raises Safety Concerns - February 23, 2011

Toy­ota has issued an addi­tion­al safe­ty recall of 2.14M vehi­cles regard­ing safe­ty issues with loose floor mats and car­pet, sim­i­lar to the recall in Octo­ber, 2009. Recent­ly cleared by the NHTSA for elec­tron­ics-relat­ed issues, this recall again rais­es con­cern regard­ing Toyota’s rep­u­ta­tion for build­ing very reli­able vehi­cles. Toy­ota has announced a proac­tive approach to all safe­ty issues, and this lat­est recall is an exam­ple of the company’s pol­i­cy.
