reasons for Toyota‘s recall crisis. This recall situation is considered a crisis because of the loss
of consumer and investor trust in the Toyota brand. This loss of trust is made evident by publicdiscourse and stock valuation. It is necessary for Toyota to rebuild and improve its relationswith its stakeholders to improve its brand image.
