• Certain 2009-2010 RAV4,

toyota recalls

It is quite a shame for the image of Toyota for having so many models of their cars being recalled. Many people now are wondering what is happening to the engineers of Toyota and why are they so making many errors over the past years. From different parts and defects have been detected in these cars. I think it's much better to immediately replace some minor parts of new cars today such as the brake fluid, air filter with K&N, muffler and much more in order to avoid these problems.
