Toyota reveal recalled UK cars

1 February 2010


Toyota have finally announced the UK-based cars that will be recalled due to a faulty accelerator pedal. If you own any of the following vehicles, you’d better start clearing out the glove compartment because it will soon be wrestled from your grip and pulped into a cube.

• Aygo (Feb 2005 – Aug 2009)
• iQ (Nov 2008 – Nov 2009)
• Yaris (Nov 2005 – Sep 2009)
• Auris (Oct 2006 – 5 Jan 2010)
• Corolla (Oct 2006 – Dec 2009)
• Verso (Feb 2009 – 5 Jan 2010)
• Avensis (Nov 2008 – Dec 2009)
• RAV4 (Nov 2005 – Nov 2009)

Obviously we made all that stuff up about the cars being pulped because we’re a bunch of scaremongering morons but if you do own any of the cars in question, Toyota have more info for you at their website, where they say they will be contacting affected customers.

Pedestrians, if you see a Toyota coming down the road in your direction, dive into the nearest hedge as it is almost certainly out of control and headed straight for your precious bones.

Sorry, more scaremongering there.

    The Honda Jizz..........err, Jazz has been recalled too. All those "differently shaped" eyes being taken off the ball, methinks. *slanty*

    Seems the posts need a bit of moderation to get rid of people of discriminatory views like Zeddy At least it is being fixed and not covered up / monetised / fight club ref etc

    Recalling RAV4's? Who'll do the school run now? The poor mums couldn't possibly walk the 500 yards down there, they'll have to get a taxi or something.

    Any word on whether Lexus models are affected as well. A quick google reveals some scary stories of stuck accelerator pedals on the highway/motorway on my mum's model of car (IS250)...

    @Lombear: That'll be epicanthic folds to you, you humourless tit.

    I found out Toyota is currently recalling most vehicles with braking malfunctions . My brother has a Prius, can the car be used before the recall?
  • Lombear
    @zeddy - Why even mention it? I like a good sense of humour just not from racist and tackless idiots like you and back on topic - looks like it has got worse with the Prius brakes today - bad run for them and lots of cars to fix - still at least its being done.
