Toyota recalls 1.33 million Corollas and Matrix… AGAIN

NEW YORK ( — Toyota Motor Corp. said it was recalling 1.33 million Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles on Thursday, citing problems in engines’ electronic control units that have allegedly led to three accidents.

The Japanese automaker said the recall would affect 1.13 million 2005-2008 Corolla models in the United States and 200,000 in Canada.

The company said that in two-wheel drive vehicles with the 1ZZ-FE engine, the Engine Control Module’s circuit board can crack and cause “harsh shifting” and may prevent the engine from starting.

In some cases, the engine can stop while the vehicle is being driven, the company said.
