    The article states, "Toyota is notifying all affected owners and will replace any improperly heat-treated axles."
    Just how are dealers going to know if an axle is "improperly heat treated"? Why not simply replace all 50 axles and be finished with it, Toyota? I like my '09 Corolla, but will probably not get another one, or any Toyota for that matter, as they are proving beyond a shadow of a doubt they don't have their ducks in a row here in North America.

    Hey Mike,
    The affected recall numbers are purely an estimate and it relates to the number of Venzas that will likely require repair due to this recall.
    All components on a car have a serial number and Toyota can trace back what series in the number were affected. This is how they can repair just a select group with near certainty that the problem is rectified.
    O am certain that Toyota, with all of their woes, is taking special care to make certain all of their customers are as safe as possible.
