Toyota recalls Corollas in Brazil

Faulty hoses may leak gas in models made between 2008 and 2010

In another blow to the company’s once lauded safety record, Toyota Brazil announced this weekend that it’s recalling Corollas produced between March 2008 and December 2010. The problem is apparently a faulty hose system used when cold starting the car. It may leak gasoline, and thus pose a risk that goes boom. A remote risk, the newspaper O Globo emphasized. Toyota didn’t say how many cars were affected. Last year, 117,428 Corolla’s were recalled within Brazil to fix problems with floor mats.
