Toyota in more financial misery.

The Mayans predicted the world would end in 2012, but for Toyota, that predication has come two years early. Ok, it’s not that bad, but 2010 has been probably the worst year for the Japanese marque in a few decades.

A few months ago there was a worldwide recall for a potential acceleration sticking issue – and now, another issue has reared its ugly head.

Apparently, Toyota is recalling 1.53 million cars for brake fluid and fuel pump problems. The company is keen to point out, however, that the issues are ‘mainly’ in the US and Japan, and affect Lexus, Avalon and a few other models.

The issue is from a faulty brake master cylinder that could lead to a brake pedal that doesn’t perform like it should – although, it’s probably best to point out that there have been no recorded accidents due to this recall as yet.

Toyota’s car finance went through a tough time a few months ago; let’s hope for its sake that they sort out these errors that have seen one of the world’s most reliable manufacturers lose a lot of its credibility.
