Toyota Chief feels sorry for recall of Toyota cars 8 models

Toyota Chief Akio Toyoda felt sorry for the Toyota cars recalls in North America, China and European markets. Toyota Chief expressed his concern on the sidelines of ongoing World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland. So far Toyota has recalled as many car as it sold in these markets. The no. of Toyota cars recalled has gone up to 7.5 million units.

However the cars sold in developing countries except China, Australia and its home country Japan are free from pedal defects. The Toyota cars with pedal defects are due to defective supply of pedals from specific Toyota vendor. The pedals from this vendor are used in Toyota cars which are sold in North America, Europe and China.

Before Toyota, another Japanese car manufacturer Honda has also recalled some of its car models in US market. The Toyota recall of its car models due to defective gas pedal has deteriorated brand image of not only Toyota but also Japan as a safe car manufacturing country.

The 8 car models recalled by Toyota are  RAV4, Corolla, Matrix, Avalon, Camry, Highlander, Tundra and Sequoia. The no. of cars recalled by Toyota is continue to rise.
