    TOKYO – Toyota Motor Corp. said Thursday about 270,000 cars sold
    worldwide — including luxury Lexus sedans — have faulty engines, the
    latest quality lapse to hit the automaker following massive global

    Japan's public broadcaster NHK and Kyodo News agency said Toyota, the
    world's No. 1 automaker, was considering recalling the vehicles but
    didn't name sources.

    Toyota spokesman Hideaki Homma said the company was evaluating
    measures to deal with the problem of defective engines that can stall
    while the vehicle is moving. He would not confirm a recall was being

    The automaker has been working to patch up its reputation after
    recalling more than 8 million vehicles worldwide because of unintended
    acceleration and other defects.

    Of the 270,000 vehicles with engine problems, some 180,000 were sold
    overseas and the rest in Japan. They include the popular Crown and
    seven models of luxury Lexus sedans.

    Toyota said there have been no reports of accidents linked to the
    faulty engines. It did not say how it learned about the engine

    The automaker's shares fell 1.1 percent to 3,045 yen in Tokyo on

    U.S. authorities recently slapped Toyota with a record $16.4 million
    fine for acting too slowly to recall vehicles with defects. Toyota
    dealers have repaired millions of vehicles, but the automaker still
    faces more than 200 lawsuits tied to accidents, the lower resale value
    of Toyota vehicles and the drop in the company's stock.

    In the aftermath of the recalls, Congress is considering an upgrade to
    auto safety laws to toughen potential penalties against automakers,
    give the U.S. government more powers to demand a recall and push car
    companies to meet new safety standards.

    Toyota said last week it will recall 17,000 Lexus luxury hybrids after
    testing showed that fuel can spill during a rear-end crash.

    There is nothing wrong it is just market competition. Washindani wanaharibu image ya Toyota.

    I think every design must have its own cosideration factors in priority . Am sure for toyota prodcing a cheap car is more priority thna safest issues . Ukija kwa Marcedes wao design cosidreation yao inaweza kuwa SAFEFEST zaidi kuliko kuangalia COST, and then zinakuja nyingine kama uimara.

    Kusema hivyo sio kuwa TOYOTA hawajali usalama au uimara wa gari lakini naamini hazina umuhimu sana.

    So those defect in Toyota makes sidhani kama ni new sema competitors wanataka kuharibu image ya TOYOTA . ni halali yao kutumia weaknes ya mshindani wako kummaliza.

    Wameamua kufungua viwanda vingi China na North America ili wazimwage gari zao kama njugu. Kwa kufanya hivyo wakasahau kitu kinachoitwa Quality na haya ndiyo matokeo yake. Hivi sasa wanunuzi waliopanga kununua Toyota/Lexus hivi karibuni au katika miezi michache ijayo itabidi wafikirie mara mbili mbili kabla ya kuamua ni gari ipi watakayonunua.
