Two New Models Announced in Latest Toyota Recall


Posted on Aug 05, 2010

If you have been following the news about the Toyota recall over the last year, you can add two more models to the list. In July, Toyota announced two more major recalls. One recall is for 373,000 Toyota Avalons, and the other is for 39,000 Lexus LX 470s sport utilities. The new Toyota recall is due to issues that may result in a loss of steering control. The specific models that are affected in the latest Toyota recall are: 

  • Toyota Avalon model years 2000 to 2004
  • Lexus LX 470 model years 2003 to 2007 


According to the Associated Press, this brings the total number of recalled vehicles in the US to 9.5 million.

According to a statement made by Toyota, the problem with the Avalon models is that the steering lock bar may break, which could cause the steering wheel to lock while the car is in motion. There have been 3 unconfirmed accidents, but no injuries reported due to this problem.

In the Lexus SUVs, Toyota said that a snap ring on the shaft may disengage after an impact, which may disengage the steering shaft. So far no accidents were reported because of this problem.
