Toyota recalls Yaris
May 27, 2016
Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain models of the Yaris produced between Jan 13th 2015 to Feb 27th 2016.
The subject vehicles are equipped with front shock absorbers (struts). There is a possibility that a strut mounting could be damaged as a result of a heavy impact, such as when the vehicle is driven over a large bump.
If this occurs, the driver may experience an abnormal noise when driving on uneven roads or when turning the steering wheel. If the vehicle continues to be operated, the upper side of the strut rod could separate, causing a loss of vehicle stability, which could increase the risk of a crash.
There are 531 affected vehicles in Ireland.
What to do
Toyota Ireland will be writing directly to those customers involved in this recall to arrange to have their vehicles checked and re-fitted if necessary. The letter will advise you to contact your nearest Toyota Dealer/Authorised Repairer who will arrange to do the check/repair free of charge.
