Toyota Recall 2013 Issued

Why Toyota Motor U.S. recalls so many cars at one time? The basic reason behind this recall is the airbag control module defects. Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., has issued a recall statement for both Camry, Avalon and their Hybrid models of year 2012-2013 along with Venza cars. 

Toyota Motor U.S. said that the company "will conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 803,000 Model Year 2012-2013 Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid, and Venza vehicles due to a problem with the air conditioning condenser unit housing," in its recall statement on October 17th. 

Basically the condenser unit of the car air conditioner is having a defect due to which water can leak onto airbag control module. This leakage of water can cause a short circuit. In some cases, "the air bag(s) could become disabled or could inadvertently deploy or the power steering assist function could also become inoperable," according to recall statement. 

However, with this recall, Toyota will resolve this issue. Giant car maker firm will "install a cover to the air conditioning condenser unit housing seam located above the airbag control module" to correct the defect. The car owners will get a notification mail from the company to return back the vehicle for repairing purpose. You can also get more information here.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
