“What they’re really feeling is still the pinch of people very weary of their brand. And although we’re not seeing sales completely nose dive, they’re definitely not as strong as they used to be. And if you look at a lot of their year over year comparisons for both Toyota and Lexus, I mean they’re not as strong as a lot of their competitors, especially Lexus. A lot of the luxury brands did really well this past month and Lexus was up only a little over six percent so it definitely shows they’re lacking behind.”

Toyota Motor Corporation said on Friday it intends to recall 138-thousand Lexus vehicles in the United States to fix faulty engines in the latest quality problem to afflict the troubled automaker.
The Japanese automaker said flaws in valve springs, a crucial engine component, could make the vehicle stall while in motion.
Toyota confirmed in a statement it plans to file paperwork with the government on the recall next week.
With this round of recalls, analysts are beginning to question the company’s strength.
“They’re definitely not as strong as they used to be,” said Jessica Caldwell, auto analyst with
“If you look at a lot of their year over year comparisons for both Toyota and Lexus, I mean they’re not as strong as a lot of their competitors,” she added.
The recall affects certain GS, IS and LS vehicles from the 2006-2008 model years powered by 4.6 and 5.0 litre V8 engines and 3.5 litre V6 engines.
No accidents or injuries have been reported.
Vehicles from the 2009 and 2010 model years are not affected.
Toyota had announced in Japan that it would recall 270-thousand Lexus vehicles around the world to address the engine stalling problems.
The global recall affects seven luxury Lexus sedan models as well as the popular Crown sedan, sold primarily in Japan.
Of the 270-thousand recalled cars, some 180-thousand were sold overseas, including the United States, and 90-thousand in Japan.
The company has received about 200 complaints in Japan but no accidents were reported there or abroad, said a Toyota spokesperson.
Some drivers told Toyota that engines made a strange noise.
The automaker was already scrambling to repair its reputation after 8.5 (m) million vehicles were recalled beginning in October
because of problems with sticking accelerator pedals and other issues.
Toyota was slapped with a record 16.4 (m) million US dollar fine in the United States for acting too slowly to recall vehicles with
Japan’s major daily Asahi said Friday the latest recall of 270-thousand vehicles could cost Toyota around 227 (m) million US dollars.
Toyota could not confirm the report, which gave no sources.
Toyota will inform Japan’s transport ministry of the recall on Monday.
The company said it would file its recall report in the U.S. next week.
Toyota said owners will be notified of the recall by mail and dealers will repair the engine’s valve springs at no charge.
The company said owners can continue to drive their vehicles.
If they notice vibration, unusual engine sounds or rough idling, they should bring the car to a dealer for service.

Hyundai Recall 2011-2012 Hyundai Sonata (What to Expect) What to do if you got a recall letter from Hyundai? Hello, My name is Leif O’Connell and I am a Sales Consultant here at Rowe Westbrook. If you are watching this video you received a recall notice from Hyundai. We at Rowe know this can be stressful and inconvenient. As compensation for you we would like to offer you a FREE Bumper to Bumper Warranty to 100,000 MILES on your next purchase of a new Hyundai or Ford now through President’s Day!
We at Rowe want you to know what to do and what to expect with your Hyundai Recall. Hyundai is arguably one of the least recalled brands in the World but when they do have one they quickly resolve it and make owners aware right away.
The recall was prompted when it was discovered that metal debris that should have been removed may still be in the engine crankshaft — and that could cause the engine to stall. The cars at issue have 2.0 or 2.4 liter direct injection gas engines.
NHTSA said there hadn’t been any reported injuries and estimated that only about 2% of 2011-2012 model year Sonatas are affected.
The recall affects 2011-2012 cars that were manufactured at an Alabama manufacturing plant between December 2009 and April 2012. Hyundai will mail affected owners an interim recall notification by November 2, 2015, instructing them to contact their dealer for a service appointment. The dealer will inspect the vehicle and, if necessary, replace the engine free of charge. A second notification will be mailed when parts are available.
Most people have been immediately bringing their recalled Sonata to Rowe Hyundai in Westbrook, Maine and we will diagnose the issue and commit to quickly rectifying it and offer you an amazing deal on a new Hyundai or Ford including that free bumper to bumper warranty good until the vehicle hits 100,000 miles.

GM’s 2014 Recall Tally Tops 30 Million With Recall Of Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Silverado, More

Last Wednesday, December 31, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration confirmed General Motors’ final recall for 2014. Affecting more than 92,000 Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC vehicles around the globe, the recall pushes GM’s total recalls for 2014 north of the 30.4 million mark.
GM’s final recall of 2014 involves a range of Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC trucks and SUVs from the 2011 and 2012 model years. Given the Switchgate fiasco that dogged the automaker earlier in 2014, it’s perhaps fitting that GM’s last recall of the year also stems from a problem with ignition systems.

General Motors announced two more recalls Friday, pushing its total for the year to 71, affecting almost 30 million vehicles in North America. The biggest of the new recalls covers just over 430,000 Cadillac SRX and Saab 9-4X SUVs, mainly in North America. The company says some rear suspension nuts may not have been tightened properly. That could cause the toe link adjuster to separate from the suspension, possibly causing a crash. GM also confirmed Friday that it has told dealers to stop selling Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks that went on sale about two weeks ago until an air bag problem is repaired.
