Toyota faces safety recall crisis

Japanese car giant tries to limit dent in reputation for quality and reliability.

    Shares in Japanese car giant Toyota have tumbled more than 15 per cent in a week as the company struggles to contain the fallout from a safety recall affecting millions of its cars, including its top-selling Camry and Corolla models.

    The automaker has said it is closing in on a solution to the problem that could cause accelerator pedals to stick.

    But the growing recall has badly dented the company's reputation for quality and reliability.
