Oops?! Toyotas 2007 Corolla has barely backed off the boat before suffering a set-back.

In a very un-Toyota like incident one of the drivers unloading the cars adjusted the steering column only to have a clip fall in his lap and the steering column drop.

The problem appears to lie with the clips not being pushed in properly which has allowed some of them to come loose.

"One of the truck drivers got into a car, pulled the telescopic steering column outwards and the clip fell off, allowing the steering column to drop down,'' Toyota spokesman Mike Breen said.

The remainder of the vehicles have been checked and a few of them were found to have incorrectly installed clips as well. As a result, Toyota dealers will be waiting a little longer than first thought for their allocation.

"Some dealers who were expecting their cars today won't get them. We are making sure the clips are right, so the delivery may be delayed a couple of days.''

Toyota are no-doubt pleased that this fault was found and rectified before any cars were sold which would have resulted in a vehicle recall?and that would have been very embarrassing for a maker whose reputation is built on quality and reliability.
