Toyota is recalling 50,000 2003 Sequoia sport-utility vehicles because of concerns about their stability control systems. It’s the embattled carmaker’s third recall in two weeks. From the Wall Street Journal:
In the latest recall, Toyota said the electronic stability-control system in the Sequoias may not activate as quickly as a driver expects at low speeds. Toyota said there have been no reported injuries or accidents.
“Toyota is committed to investigating customer complaints more aggressively and to responding quickly to issues we identify in our vehicles,” said Steve St. Angelo, Toyota chief quality officer for North America, in a statement. Toyota said the recall was voluntary.
Under the recall, which is voluntary, Toyota will replace the engine-control computer to correct the problem, according to the Journal.
Two weeks ago, the company suspended sales of its 2010 Lexus GX 460 SUV based on concerns about the car’s rollover risk. Toyota issued a recall of the model last week. And on April 16, the company recalled 600,000 Sienna minivans after federal regulators received complaints of spare tires falling off the cars.
