Toyota Issues

The most common Toyota problems

Toyota-common-problems

Problems solved during Toyota’s recalls do not usually determine the reliability of the vehicle itself. Even the common-recalled model can be a good choice, and vice versa.

It is good to be informed, however, what problems the manufacturer has recalled most often. At least to know whether the defect was corrected by the previous owner, when buying a second-hand car. You should check your vehicle VIN with your nearest Toyota dealer using our special page.
