Toyota announces massive recall

Toyota have announced a recall of nearly 20 000 of its Aurion and Camry models.

"We are asking everyone to bring their vehicles so we can check that they're safe."

Beck explained that "it's still safe to drive vehicles; however, if people smell fuel they should stop driving and visit their nearest Toyota dealer."
