How many times have I yelled at Prius drivers in West Hollywood for driving like asses, parking in two spots and making a left turn from the far right lane? Countless. How happy am I that I may have had good reason to be screaming in my AUDI? Never Ending Joy doesn’t cover it.
Toyota, Japan’s number one auto maker, has recalled 2.77 Million of their Toyota Corolla & Prius model’s due to fault’ int the steering and water-pump systems.
Bloomberg Business Week spoke with a Representative in Japan who told them;
The Prius hybrid and Corolla compact sedans are among the 14 models subject to inspection and repair, Naoto Fuse, a spokesman for the Toyota City, Japan-based company, said by phone today. The carmaker will recall 1.52 million vehicles in Japan and 1.25 million vehicles overseas, including 670,000 Prius vehicles in the U.S.
That’s a lot of Prius and Corolla’s being pulled off the road. Time to get shopping for a new car commuters. Turns out your status symbol/commuter car isn’t as reliable as you thought.
Don’t cry West Hollywood. There are tons of hybrids out there. You just never looked. Or you could get savvy and take public transport (no, not that!). But….nobody walks in LA.
What will you do if they have to recall your car?
In the meantime enjoy this song inspired by the recall.
