AUTO RECALL PHOTO GALLERY: Early-2003 Model-Year Toyota Sequoia sport utility vehicle
On April 28, Toyota issued yet another recall, this time on about 50,000 early-2003 Toyota Sequoia SUVs to upgrade their stability-control system for controlling a loss of traction during turns. This, not long after a separate call was made on about 9,400 2010 Lexus GX 460 SUVs after Consumer Reports deemed the car a "don't buy," also due to traction concerns. Still, the world's largest automaker is far from the only car company revealing vehicle defects and issuing recalls. Indeed, numerous automakers have issued recalls of late, including Nissan ( NSANY), GM, Ford ( F), Chrysler and Honda ( HMC). Yes, even Ford, which has generated significant goodwill in the U.S. by virtue of the fact that it is not Toyota, has issued recalls of its own -- and has, in fact, like the other big six carmakers, received its own complaints regarding sudden acceleration, according to Edmunds.com.
