Millions of vehicles have now been recalled by Honda, Toyota, and other major auto-makers because airbags exploded, failed to deploy, opened without warning, or had other problems that can cause severe injury or even death.

Toyota has told North American dealers to stop selling six popular models with heated seats because a soft material beneath the seat covers does not comply with U.S. safety standards.

Toyota Lexus Recall attorneyToyota has recalled over 780,000 Toyota RAV4 sport utility vehicles and Lexus HS 250h autos because the rear suspension arm will loosen over time and develop damage to the rear tie rod:

This damage will eventually lead to a failure, which could cause the vehicle to lose control. The model years affected are from 2006 through 2011 for both vehicles that were manufactured from October 2005 through September 2010. This is the second time Toyota has had to recall these vehicles for the same problem. The first recall occurred in August 2012 where Toyota attempted to correct the problem, but failed.

Another recall affects 133,000 2006-2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid SUVs and Lexus RX 400h vehicles from 2006-2008 due to overheating problems. Certain transistors within these hybrid cars could be damaged during regular use, causing the car to lose power and steering capabilities. A third recall affects 102,000 Lexus IS 350, IS 350C, and GS 350 vehicles. The model years in this recall are from 2006 to 2011. Toyota claims that certain bolts that were installed in timing controlled mechanisms can become loose while driving. If the bolts continue to loosen, the vehicles affected can stop completely while in use.

As consumers, we trust that the products we purchase meet certain standards for safety. In most cases this trust is well founded, but unfortunately defective and dangerous products still do find their way into our homes, hospitals, offices and businesses.
