Get your Toyota checked folks

Toyota has recalled 1.13 million Corolla sedans and Matrix hatchbacks — including about 200,000 in Canada — because their engines may stall.

It's the latest in a string of quality problems at the Japanese automaker.

The recall issued Thursday covers vehicles from the 2005-2008 model years sold in North America, including 136,000 Corollas and 64,300 Matrixes in Canada.

Three accidents and one minor injury have been reported, though Toyota said a link to the engine issue has not been confirmed.

The automaker said vehicles with 1ZZ-FE engines may contain a defective engine control module, the computer that regulates the performance of the engine. In some cases, a crack may develop on the module's circuit board, which could prevent the engine from starting, harsh shifting or an engine stall.

Toyota said it will replace the engine-control modules on the recalled vehicles at no charge. It will begin mailing notifications to customers with affected Corollas and Matrixes starting in mid-September.

Toyota has recalled more than 10 million vehicles worldwide over the past year for a range of problems, including faulty gas pedals, floor mats that can trap accelerators and braking problems in its Prius hybrid.

U.S. federal regulators have been investigating the possibility of engine stalls in the Corolla and Matrix models since December and intensified their probe earlier this week.

Toyota shares fell 28 cents to $68.78 US.

GM will come back.. Toyota being an asian company will have to take the toll.. its reputation of being efficient and safe is already ruined

thats stupid..damn.. why does it happen a lot to toyota?
Nissan had a problem in V35 Sedan Skyline

The ECU/ Chip had a electrical problem.. My friend had one and he had to replace himself because he imported that from japan.

Because of exposure to heat in the car, ECU board got damaged which results in turning on the AC , Turning on the Radio and fog lamps and hazard lights at times. we were saying . thers a ghost in ur car dude :D

There is a huge difference between aa Apple Iphone and a Car.

Car can take lifes .. But Iphone wont. So you can't risk someone life to save money .. making recall a neccesity.. nothing related to the location where the company merged from... BTW he best technology of operation is still from Asian based companies... where the product is manufacture depending on the demand rather than bulk manufacturing. - which is contridicting cause of these recalls :loll:
