Toyota To Recall 480,000 Avalon Sedans and Land Cruiser SUVs for Steering Flaws

Toyota Motor Corp. said it’s preparing a global recall of about 480,000 Avalon sedans and Land Cruiser sport-utility vehicles to repair steering parts that may be defective.

About 400,000 U.S.-built Avalons have a steering-column bracket that can fail and cause the steering wheel to lock up, Toyota said yesterday. The Avalons were built between 2000 through 2004 and include 373,000 in the U.S., as well as versions sold in Japan, Canada, China and Saudi Arabia, Bloomberg says.

Toyota ’s massive quality control problems began last October when it announced a recall of 5.3 million cars and trucks to fix floor mats that can trap pedals and cause unintended acceleration.

According to statistics compiled by Wards AutoInfoBank and announced reported by the Associated Press about 39 percent of the 24.1 million Toyota vehicles sold in the U.S. since 1998 have been recalled, according reports The Weekly Driver.
