New Zealand Toyota Corolla owners
unaffected by US recall
Toyota New Zealand says owners of New Zealand's most popular car are unaffected by a recall of late-model Corolla vehicles in the US.
Paul Carroll, General Manager of After Sales for Toyota New Zealand, says no Corollas in New Zealand - including Japanese imports - are fitted with the electronic control module used in the US market.
"The potentially faulty electronic control module used the US market is supplied by a different manufacturer than those in New Zealand vehicles. No vehicles here are affected and owners can have confidence in their Corollas."
Mr Carroll says Toyota in the US has received three reports of problems, and will replace the control modules, which could malfunction and cause harsh gear changes, or in the worst case, stalling.
