Toyota recalls Passenger vehicles Prius, Auris and Prius+
October 5, 2018
Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of Prius, Auris and Prius+ vehicles.
The recalled vehicles involved were designed to enter a failsafe driving mode in response to certain hybrid system faults. Toyota has found that in rare situations, the vehicle may not enter a failsafe driving mode as intended and if this occurs, the vehicle could lose power and stall. While power steering and braking would remain operational, a vehicle stall while driving at higher speeds could increase the risk of a crash.
The recalled models are Toyota Prius, Auris and Prius+ and they were manufactured between July 2009 and March 2014. 1,289 affected vehicles were made available on the Irish market.
What to do:
Toyota Ireland will be writing directly to those customers affected in this recall to arrange to have the Power Management ECU in their vehicles reprogrammed. The letter will also advise consumers affected by this voluntary recall to contact their nearest Toyota Dealer/Authorised Repairer who will arrange to do the repair free of charge. Toyota Ireland can be contacted on: 01 419 0222.Return to Product Recalls
