Toyota Motor Corp. has recalled 690,000 pickup trucks. Toyota recalled Tacoma trucks to fix suspension parts that could break down. The Tacoma recall covers trucks with model years 2005 through 2011. While Toyota said in a statement it isn’t aware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities associated with the defect, several truck owners have filed complaints with NHTSA about faulty leaf springs damaging the brakes of their vehicles.
Toyota also recalled as many as 1.69 million Toyota Corollas with model years from 2006 to 2010. Owners said they experienced unintended “low-speed surging,” according to NHTSA.
The Corolla complaints are reminiscent of the sudden, unintended acceleration episodes that led Toyota, the world’s largest automaker, to recall more than 10 million vehicles in 2009 and 2010.
