Toyota Considers New Recall For Corolla, Matrix
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Toyota is determining how to address 1.2 million potentially faulty vehicles. The 2005-2007 model year Corolla and Matrix may have faulty engine control units leading to stalled engines. There had been 76 complaints on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website regarding the issue as of earlier this month.
Toyota says the problem could occur in 0.8% of the models over 10 years and that it would always lead to an engine warning light and a stalled engine. By our math, that would be 9,600 cars.
The Free Press says that any action could also affect the 2005-2007 Pontiac Vibe, which was built at the same plant as the Matrix.
