Toyota Recall

BREAKING NEWS...Toyota Motor Corp is recalling more than 1.5 million cars worldwide due to a brake system problem.
This recall is coming less than two months after they a ordered a recall in Canada and the United States of 1.3 million Matrix and Corolla automobiles.
Toyota's latest recall involves 740,000 Avalon, Highlander, Lexus GS300, IS250, IS350 cars in the United States to replace a brake master cylinder seal.  The defect in the seal can cause some brake fluid to leak from the cylinder causing the brake warning light to turn on.  The recall also involves 600,000 vehicles in Japan and another in China, including the Crown Sedan, for defective master cylinder seal or a defective fuel pump wiring.
Toyota has not reported any accidents from these defects and does not disclose estimates for the costs of the recall.
