Toyota Recalls 418,570 Echos, Priuses over Faulty Engines

Tuesday July 18, 2006

Due to a faulty part (yes, they’re so transparent they won’t even give any details) in the engines which could “lead to an oil leak inside the engine and cause it to stop completely”, Toyota is presently recalling 418,570 cars worldwide.

This is yet another in what seems to be a long string of recalls from Toyota in the past month and we’ve probably not seen the worst yet, as an ongoing investigation accuses Toyota of having convered up such recalls for up to eight years.

The infallible king of quality doesn’t seem so infallible after all, nor to they really seem to be the undisputed kings of quality either…
