Toyota Recall Becomes More Serious – Sales/Production Suspended

On Tuesday January 26, 2010, Toyota announced that not only was it recalling certain vehicles related to safety concerns regarding the acceleration of the vehicle, but now Toyota is halting production and sales of many of its most popular vehicles. Toyota initially claimed the floor mats could make a driver unable to stop the car. Now Toyota is claiming a sticking accelerator is causing the safety problems. The seriousness of this recall can be seen in the changes Toyota made this passed Tuesday. Rarely does a car manufacturer halt production and sales of its vehicles, especially multiple top selling vehicles, unless there are serious safety concerns. There may very well be more to this tale than Toyota is currently sharing with the public. There have already been several complaints and injuries related to uncontrollable accelerating vehicles. People injured as a result of these faulty cars have a right to seek answers from Toyota, and Toyota should be held responsible for the injuries suffered to these people through no fault of their own. The vehicles affected by the recall include: 2009-2010 Rav 4, 2009-2010 Corolla, 2009-2010 Matrix, 2005-2010 Avalon, 2007-2010 Camry, 2010 Highlander, 2007-2010 Tundra, 2008-2010 Sequoia. If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of the recalled Toyota vehicles, contact McCallister Law Group. You may be entitled to money damages.
