Default Toyota offers fix for steering in Corolla, Matrix for those who ask

Toyota has told U.S. auto safety officials that a steering problem
that could affect 749,685 Corolla and Matrix models isn't a safety
defect -- but it will offer free repairs to owners who complain, the
Free Press has learned.

If allowed by federal regulators, the move would save Toyota from
adding to its total of 8.5 million vehicles recalled worldwide this
year, most because of defects tied to sudden acceleration. But Toyota
also would avoid the legal requirements of a safety recall, such as
notifying all affected owners and updating regulators on how many
repairs had been made.

No, it's not part of a TOTAL RECALL, it's the Squeaky Wheel Gets the
Grease Service Plan.
