Toyota Recall for Corollas From US and Canada Market

Toyota Motor Corp said on Thursday it would recall 1.3 million Corolla and Matrix cars in the United States and Canada because of defective engine control modules that could cause the vehicles to stall.

General Motors Co also said on Thursday that some 200,000 Pontiac Vibes, a sister car to the Toyota Matrix, would be recalled in the United States and Canada because of the same issue.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on August 18 intensified a probe into reports of stalling in the vehicles from the 2005 through 2007 model years, upgrading a preliminary investigation opened in November 2009.

"The engine can stall at any speed without warning and not restart," NHTSA said in a report on its website.
Toyota spokesman John Hanson said four of 32 engine control modules obtained from cars in service and four malfunctioned during tests that subjected them to extreme heat and cold, prompting the decision to replace the components.

The recall covers 1.13 million vehicles in the United States and 200,300 in Canada, Toyota said. Toyota Canada said it had no reports of accidents or injuries.
