Toyota recalls Corolla, Matrix vehicles for stalling issues
Recalled: Aug. 26, 2010
Toyota is recalling 1.33 million Corolla sedans and Matrix hatchbacks in the United States because of reports of engines stalling or failing to start.
Toyota said cars with 1ZZ-FE engines may contain a defective engine control module. A crack may develop on the module's circuit board, which could prevent the engine from starting, harsh shifting or an engine stall, the Associated Press reports. The company said a link to the engine issue responsible for 11 million recalled Toyota vehicles since November has not been confirmed.
Affected models include Corolla and Corolla Matrix models released between 2003 and 2008. GM is recalling 200,000 Pontiac Vibes in North America due to the same problem.
