    NHTSA Probes Two More Toyota Models For Safety Issues.

    The Los Angeles Times (12/5, Bensinger, Vartabedian) reported that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has "opened a probe into two models of Toyota Motor Corp. vehicles after drivers complained that their cars inexplicably stalled in traffic, sometimes at highway speeds." Federal safety officials "posted a document" where they cite "26 complaints from drivers of 2006 model year Matrix and Corolla vehicles." The news safety probe "is another blow to an automaker that has seen its long-held reputation for quality come under attack amid a flurry of safety-related recalls and investigations this year." Last week automaker "said it would recall more than 4.2 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles in the U.S. and Canada because their design increases the risk that they could suddenly accelerate out of control.

    In addition, Toyota recalled 110,000 Tundra pickups because of a rust problem that could cause the spare tire to fall onto the road, creating a hazard for other vehicles." The Wall Street Journal (12/7, B1, Linebaugh) also reports the story on the front page of its Marketplace section.
