Staying true to its strong image of honesty and integrity, Toyota Motors has recalled 369,000 of its vehicles worldwide in order to fix certain vital defects in them. A record number of the transportation solutions on wheels were taken back to eradicate the problems they seemed to possess in their internal components.

Toyota Motors is saying mea culpa. It has acknowledged some major and minor mistakes it made in many of the models that have rolled off its assembly lines. Over 200,000 hybrid SUVs are being retrieved from the owners worldwide for sharpshooting at the cost of the company. The company is also separately recalling 169,000 vehicles including the Lexus GS350 and IS350 due to engine problems. It is a good thing that until now no fatalities or injuries have taken place. As for the total bill that Toyota will incur as a result of this act of radical honesty, one can only surmise. There have been no comments regarding this from the huge conglomerate. 

The whole issue began with faults in the hybrid system inverter. To correct the damaged goods, 141,000 of the Lexus RX400h and Highlander versions will be temporarily repossessed in North America. Over 37,000 of these highly luxurious vehicles will be going back to the factories to be operated upon in Continental Europe. And at least 15,000 will undergo changes in the land of their origin that is Japan. 


Furthermore, the trouble doesn’t end there. Many of the Lexuses in the States and the Land of the Rising Sun have flaws in the engine assembly process. This rupture could cause engine stoppage. It is vital that all the vehicles he put back in working order with safety being the top concern for now.
