Toyota Recalling 95,700 Vehicles
TORRANCE, CA --- Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling about 95,700 Corolla and Scion vehicles because ice could accumulate on their braking systems and make it more difficult for drivers to slow down.
The recall affects 2009 and 2010 MY Toyota Corolla, Corolla Matrix and 2008 and 2009 Scion xD vehicles, all equipped with 1.8 liter engines, the company said.
If people drive the cars in extremely low temperatures, ice may accumulate at the brake system port and decrease braking power. This can lengthen vehicle stopping distances, Toyota said.
Because the condition is a risk in extremely low temperatures, Toyota's recall applies to vehicle owners in 19 states known for their harsh winters: Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
