It’s typical – the first of my new weekly blogs and I have to begin with some doom and gloom.
This week was very much about bad news being aired. Undoubtedly the biggest news story of the week – if not so far this year – was a massive recall issued not by one manufacturer, but four. Recall-plagued Toyota was the manufacturer that had the largest number of cars affected by the recall.
Of the 150,000 UK cars affected across all four brands, Toyota had the largest proportion – an unpleasant 76,000 cars.
Big sellers such as the Yaris and Avensis (both 2000-2004 cars) and many more will all be gracing Toyota dealers’ workshops in the not too distant future – that and nearly 60,000 Nissans, 14,475 Hondas and 1,913 Mazdas at their respective dealerships.
