Toyota Airbag Recalls

TOYOTA AUSTRALIA RECALLS ENTIRE SV21 CAMRY SERIES DUE TO FACT THAT OWNERS REALLY SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT SOMETHING ELSE BY NOW

TOKYO/ALTONA: On the back of a massive worldwide recall of defective airbags, Toyota Australia issued a recall of its entire SV21 Camry model series (including all cross-badged Holden Apollo models) yesterday due to the fact that its owners really should have bought something else by now. “We understand that the SV21 Camry was tremendously dependable, but, honestly, there’s just no excuse for driving a 25-year-old Camry at this point,” said Toyota spokesman Haruki Kinoshita, adding that, with all the advances in automotive technology that have taken place, no one really had any business driving a vehicle for more than two decades. “We’re not saying you have to buy a new 2015 Camry or splurge on a flashy new hybrid, or even that your new car has to be a Toyota at all. But the bottom line is that you need to start fresh, however you choose to do so.”

While Toyota is reportedly confining its recall to the SV21 Camry range, it also issued a warning to owners of 1993-1997 wide body Camry models alerting them to the fact that they were really starting to push it...

Love it.

Can we include all those early 90s lasers and pulsars still getting around that refuse to die?

And every model of magna. No wait, never mind.

Central / Southern Adelaide is Magna central - you see so many crapped out 2nd gen magnas and plenty of 'rough' 10+ year old ones - and almost all puff smoke when taking off from the lights.

Must be a self-loathing thing, so many of them either seem to not care or seem to take pride in the fact that their car is terrible but still runs. My mother-in-laws' neighbor used to have one and he re-arranged the 'M I T S U B I S H I' letters on the boot lid so that it just read ' S H I T '. :laughing6: :laughing5:
