Recall for 2000-2003 Toyota Corolla Altis and Camry !

 Toyota Motor Corporation and UMW Toyota Motor are recalling around 18,700 units of 2000-2003 made Toyota Corolla Altis and Toyota Camry. This is to rectify the issue of a defective passenger side front airbag inflator which may cause abnormal deployment or rupture during a crash.

There is no reported case of such problem in Malaysia yet, but UMW Toyota Motor will carry out corrective action at no cost on the owners. However, the timing for this recall is rarely seen, as cars of this age will be hitting the used car market, and airbag is said to expire around 10 years.

Please share this news around to your friends and family. Both models are very popular a decade ago and I'm sure it can be easily found in someone's parking garage.

So long only get to know there's a problem? Isn't that quite late?

Tekkaus: Yup! This shows that Toyota cares :)

Kelvin: Not sure about the timing, but US has few cases happened. None in Malaysia though.

Henry: Most probably the salesmen are giving out huge discount for the current Vios!

The ones actually made by Suzuki are underappreciated gems, imo. The rebadged Daewoos that they also put out under the Suzuki badge are not so great.

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less.
I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching
to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into
it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
