The automotive recalls to rectify manufacturing defects are not something unusual and even the biggest manufacturer of cars in the world-Toyota is not spared from this blemish. In a recent development Toyota has recalled around 95,700 Toyota and Scion-brand vehicles for the fear of ice accumulation on the braking systems making it tougher for drivers to slow down.
The recalled vehicles include-2009 and 2010 model year Toyota Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles , 2008 and 2009 model year Scion xD vehicles-all of which are equipped with 1.8 liter engines.
For these vehicles affected by the recall, condensed moisture can possibly seep into the brake system and freeze in low temperatures. This can potentially cause ice accumulation and lengthen the vehicle stopping distance, ultimately creating a dangerous situation.
All the owners asked to return the vehicle will have to take their commuter to a dealership where a new intake air connector will be installed. Since these cars are dangerous at low temperatures Toyota’s recall applies to vehicle owners across 19 cold states. [via: Newsdaily]
