Toyota’s latest recall may affect up to 1.5 million cars worldwide.

Unfortunately, recalls like this are becoming the norm.

According to Toyota, there maybe a problem with the brake master cylinder cup in nearly 1.5 million of its vehicles around the world. Without getting too technical, if you have the problem, you’ll notice your brakes feel a bit “spongy.” There are nearly 750,000 of these cars on the road in the United States. So if you have one of these cars, bring it in to have a local dealer a free replacement part installed.

Over the past year, Toyota has had to recall more than 10 million vehicles for a variety of problems. Here are pictures of the vehicles affected by this recall. Cars affected include the Avalon, Highlander, LexusRX330, Lexus GS300, and Lexus IS20 and 350.

All of these recalls, whether they be for cars or toys, definitely bring into question what we can take for granted anymore.

  1. So many recalls lately… frozen peas, strollers, auto recalls of all kinds. Buyer beware!

  2. I hope they won’t recall Snickers!
