Toyota Recalls One Million Corolla and Lexus IS Vehicles By Tod Aronovitz | 01/30/13 | 0 Comment

Faulty air bags and defective windshield wipers are behind a massive new recall of over one million vehicles announced today by Toyota Motor Sales, which recently reclaimed its leadership position as the #1 automaker worldwide.

Toyota Corolla and Corolla Matrix Recall

Internal short circuits may result in overheating or malfunction on the airbag control module for the supplemental restraint system (SRS) in the Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles. In some instances, the front airbag(s) and/or seat belt pre-tensioners could inadvertently deploy.

Approximately 752,000 Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles, model years 2003 and 2004, are subject to the recall.

Toyota Lexus IS Recall

Loose wiper arm nuts may result in an operational failure when subject to an external load, such as heavy snow on the windshield while driving. Driver visibility could be impaired, resulting in unsafe driving conditions. This second recall involves approximately 270,000 Lexus IS vehicles for model years 2006 through early 2012.
