Time to rethink your vehicle insurance?

By Staff Writer
Even though Toyota has now come forward and apologised "for all the concern" that they have given their clients, it has done little to reassure car owners, as they still need to decide what to do about the braking problems on the newest models of its Prius cars: Formal recall or a voluntary repair program for owners.

While you might not be one of the eight million people worldwide who has bought a Toyota Prius, it does make you stop and think about "what if?" And while you might not be able to predict that your car will start speeding you down the highway, there are a few steps you can take to minimise your chances: 

Have you recently bought a Toyota? There are two websites that you can visit to find out whether or not your car is affected:

Toyota.com: Has all the details on the cars and parts affected as well as the latest news regarding the recalls.
Toyota.co.za: Has the latest news on recalls in South Africa.

According to the latest press statement, Toyota South Africa Motors have been able to isolate the Auris, new generation Verso and Corolla as part of the technical study of all the vehicles that are sold in South Africa.
"This would imply that these three model ranges will in all possibility be included in the South African recall programme.
Toyota has not excluded any other vehicle yet and will be in a position to clearly communicate which model ranges and specific date ranges for those recalled models by next week (the week of 8-12 February)."
