Important: Toyota Recall Correction

Consumers have been watching the news of the Toyota vehicle recall developing over the last week. The announcement of the recall involving eight vehicle models has affected millions of drivers.  A recent Associated Press story was quoted by various outlets across the country and unfortunately included incorrect information. 

The phone number printed for consumers to call was 800-331-4431.  Unfortunately, when called, individuals were asked to pay $4.95 and to disclose their social security numbers.

We’d like our readers to be aware that the correct number to call is 800-331-4331.
