Many car accidents happen because drivers are simply negligent. That doesn’t only mean that drivers will crash because they are speeding, drunk, distracted, or drowsy. Sometimes they are negligent because they fail to make sure their car are fixed after being impacted by a recall.
Recall campaigns can be associated with minor issues. But sometimes, they are tied to major problems that could lead to accidents. Other times, the issue at hand may increase the risk of injury.
Drivers should pay attention and beware of the risks.
The latest recall to catch our eye was launched by Toyota. It impacts thousands of Toyota and Lexus vehicles.
They are: The 2018 Toyota Camry and Highlander, the 2017 Sienna, Tacoma, and Lexus RX350s.
The units fitted with vacuum pump assemblies may be expose drivers to risks since the assembly may have been produced in the wrong fashion. As such, the car may experience loss of braking assistance. Without the feature, an accident may occur.
Consumers will have the vacuum pumps replaced for free.
If you’re a serious driver and you put safety first, then having your vehicle repaired is also a priority.
Avoiding accidents means being a responsible driver and a responsible car owner. Thankfully, Toyota has launched this recall before deadly or serious accidents tied to the issue were reported. This is not often the case, as many companies will ignore equipment issues long after accidents are reported. That’s because certain companies will put profit before safety. Many of us fight hard to make sure that, when that happens, these automakers pay for their mistakes. The lives of consumers should never be played with.
