Problems keep mounting for the foreign car maker Toyota, which is considering another recall. This time, instead of run away vehicles, Toyota is faced with engines potentially stalling.
As of this posting no accidents have been linked to the engine stall problem. There are roughly 270,000 Lexus brand vehicles affected world wide. The recall is not official yet and Toyota PR team has not announced their intentions as of yet.
The idea of an engine stalling while in motion could be hazardous indeed. It’s not been released yet what causes the engine stall, whether under acceleration, slowing down, just that it affects some engines while in motion. Consider speeding up to merge into interstate traffic and suddenly have no ‘Moving Forward’.
