As the domestic reliability and durability of the brand is very outstanding, Toyota’s reputation is very good.But over time, Toyota’s reputation for quality seems to be fading.Recently, Toyota issued another massive recall.Faw Toyota and GAC Toyota filed recall plans with the State Administration for Market Regulation, according to a statement from the regulator.Among them, Tianjin FAW Toyota Motor Co., Ltd. recalled 162,301 corollas manufactured between March 23, 2020 and July 2, 2021.Gac Toyota Motor Co LTD recalled 161,614 Leiling vehicles manufactured between April 8, 2020 and November 19, 2021.While its recall reason related to the engine ignition coil, concrete can be characterized by extreme cases, in the operation of the engine may cause short circuit level 1 coil and the center core, makes the blown fuse and cut off the power supply plug, down lead to vehicles on the road, increase the risk of traffic accidents, pose a safety hazard.In response to the ignition coil problem, Toyota will replace the improved ignition coil for free on vehicles covered by the recall to eliminate safety concerns.In fact, Honda, Mazda and other Japanese brands have been recalled due to faulty ignition coils.Toyota’s recall can be seen as a microcosm of its declining quality control ability, the degradation of Japanese craftsman spirit may become a further constraint for Toyota sales.In 2021, Toyota recalled a large number of vehicles due to various problems. According to the data, Toyota recalled a total of 1.284 million vehicles in 2021, ranking the third in the recall data list.More than 225,000 Toyota Corolla and Lei Ling models were recalled last year because of faulty adaptive cruise braking computers.In addition to questions about product control, Toyota’s new products are also controversial.For example, GaC Toyota launched the Sena, since the launch into the “price increase storm” and “poor sales” double predicament.In December, GaC Toyota said it had a wholesale capacity of 2, 791 cars, but the federation’s sales statistics show retail sales of fewer than 1, 000.In gaC Toyota’s latest announcement of Sana sales results in January, it said that Sana achieved sales of 5,399 units in January, and top-matching models accounted for 40%.The move has also sparked consumer ridicule, with some netizens suggesting that nearly half of sales of its so-called top-of-the-line models are test drives.In fact, even if it does achieve a monthly sales of 5000, and Sanaa on October 30 announced that the pre-sale order is broken than there is a big gap, coupled with sanaa price increase is more hated by consumers.In the end: Frequent recall events and frequent terminal price increases are dragging Toyota into the whirlpool of sales decline, especially the impact of GaC Toyota superimposed price increases, will further reduce its mental share, how Toyota’s future trend is not clear.(This article was originally produced by The Editorial Department of New Media, written by Wei Wuxian, and reproduced without attribution.)
