Toyota to recall roughly 95,700 Scion-brand vehicles in the U.S.

Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it is launching a recall of roughly 95,700 Toyota and Scion-brand vehicles in the U.S. due to a possible brake malfunction.

The recall affects some 2009 and 2010 Toyota Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles and some 2008 and 2009 Scion xD vehicles, Toyota said. For those vehicles equipped with 1.8-liter engines, condensed moisture may seep into the brake system and freeze in low temperatures, potentially causing ice accumulation and weakening the power-assist to the brakes.

Those affected by the recall will be asked to return the vehicle to a dealer, where a new intake air connector will be installed.

This makes me glad I have a Toyota.  If Toyota ran big drug companies fewer people would die before recalls.  Toyota, if you make a 100 MPG prius in 2011, I’ll buy one. Too bad the 2010 doesn’t get 100 MPG. … and please nix that “Steers itself into the parking place” technology.
