Toyota Recalls 420,000 Cars in the U.S.
Toyoata is recalling 420-thousand cars in the U.S.
The company is siting a potential problem with the power steering on some 2004 and 2005 Toyota Avalons, Camrys, and several other models.
A belt for the cars' power steering pump can become separated from a pulley and cause the power steering system to fail.
If that happens, the car could suddenly become much harder to steer.
The cars involved are some 2004 Toyota Avalons as well as 2004 and 2005 Camrys, Highlander SUVs, Sienna Minivans, Solara convertibles, Lexus ES330 sedans and RX330 SUVs. The 2006 Lexus RX400h hybrid SUV is also included in the recall. All the affected by the recall are powered by V6 engines.
