22 October 2015 / Recalls
Toyota New Zealand is still assessing the impact on the New Zealand market.
Currently, there has been no information provided on which New Zealand vehicles, or how many, are impacted in the recall. However it is likely there will be New Zealand vehicles involved.
This recall is a precautionary measure and is due to the power window master switch potentially being manufactured with an insufficient amount of grease.
New Zealand new vehicles which may be involved in the global recall are Yaris, Corolla, Camry, RAV4 and Highlander models.
Japanese imported used vehicles in New Zealand which may be involved in the global recall are Vitz, Ractis, Belta, Ist, Matrix, Auris, models.
Once the assessment is complete, Toyota will notify impacted owners and ask them to make an appointment at their preferred authorised Toyota dealer.
Toyota dealers will inspect the power window master switch circuit board and apply heat-resistant grease to the switch. If the switch is already demonstrating signs of malfunction, the circuit board will be replaced. Toyota dealers will perform required rectification free of charge to the vehicle owner.
There have been no reported accidents or injuries in New Zealand.
