toyota passo

Well, another recall to be had, this one from Toyota again. The Japanese automaker announced that it is recalling some 136,000 units of its Passo hatchback and iQ ultra-compact cars, with close to 65,000 vehicles in Japan and about nearly 71,000 cars in Europe being affected.

The recall is over a potential problem with a sensor on the power steering that may fail if the vehicle drives over humps, making the steering feel much heavier in use, though there are no reports of any accidents due to it. The affected vehicles were manufactured between October 2008 and October 2010, and the company says that the fix is a simple one involving an update to the software.
