Toyota has recalled more than a million Corolla sedans and Matrix hatchbacks because their engines may stall... the latest in a string of quality problems at the Japanese automaker.
The recall covers vehicles made between 2005 and 2008 and sold in North America. Three accidents and one minor injury have been reported, though Toyota says a link to the engine issue has not been confirmed. Toyota says it will replace the engine control modules on the recalled vehicles at no charge.
It will mail notifications to owners of the affected vehicles from 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.
