    Default Beware of Imported Cars

    Dear Pakwheels Brothers


    I have just read this news item and I want to share it with you people.


    Toyota recalls 420,000 vehicles to replace engine sensors

    Tokyo-Top Japanese carmaker Toyota Motor Corp. said it would recall 420,105 vehicles of 12 types worldwide to replace faulty engine sensors. Of the total, 268,570 units have been sold at home and the 151,535 others exported mainly to North America and Europe, spokeswoman Shiori Hashimoto said.

    The affected vehicles include the Vitz, the Funcargo, the Platz and a number of Corolla models. They were produced between January and November 2001, Toyota said in a statement to Transport Ministry. The sensor, which checks on revolutions is improperly shaped and may allow engine oil to seep in, the statement said. “In the worst case, the engine is feared to stop and become unable to restart”. A total of 112 defects in those engines have been reported but no accidents resulted, the statement said.

    well..you have to be beware of most things these days anyway....
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    Calling back so many vehicles for problems (very minor) reported by less than hundred customers, and that too of cars 5 years old!!Speaks very well about toyota Motor Company Japan. Who will do something like this anyway?
