Toyota officially recalls 1.1 million Corolla and Matrix models over engine stalling issues


It seems that Toyota can’t catch a break for even a month without a recall. Now, it seems that the investigation into engine stalling issues with specific Corolla and Matrix models has revealed that an underlying issue is present.

As such, 2005-2008 Toyota Corolla and Matrix models, as well as specific 2005-2008 Pontiac Vibe vehicles, will be called back to dealerships. The engine control modules will be replaced for the 1.8-liter unit, so that stalling issues will be a thing of the past.

Around 1.1 million cars are affected by this new recall. Don’t forget that the same Corolla and Matrix models are also suffering from a steering issue, which Toyota deemed unimportant. It is, however, offering free repairs, so you might fix two problems with just one trip to the dealership.

Owners will be notified in September about this new recall.
