Toyota's Daihatsu Motor Co. recalls 581,192 minicars
Daihatsu is recalling 435,423 Move hatchbacks built between 1995 and 2000, as well as 145,769 Mira models manufactured from 1998 to 2000. Both vehicles fall into Japan's minicar category and are powered by extremely thrifty 0.66-liter engines. The fix is simple: Daihatsu will install orange bulbs in place of the clear ones, which are currently found behind those faded lenses.
While not as crippling as some of the other issues that Toyota has dealt with this year, the Daihatsu recall still adds to the more than 11 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles recalled since last fall.
