Here We Go Again: This Time The Toyotas Have Defective Engines

Toyota says that 270,000 cars worldwide, including Lexus sedans, have potentially faulty engines. NHTSA says that the company has not formally notified the agency of a recall, but a supposedly reputable Japanese newspaper says that the company plans to inform government agencies of the issue on Monday.

Apparently the defective engines can stall while the car is moving. The AP says that a US Toyota spokesperson would not confirm that a recall is planned.
