18 November 2015 / Recalls
Toyota New Zealand has announced that there are 5787 used import vehicles involved in a global recall relating to a concern with a possible CVT fault.
Models affected by this recall are Japanese imported Auris, Allion, Corolla Axio, Corolla Fielder, Corolla Rumion, Ist and Premio manufactured between July 2006 and October 2008.
Due to dimensional inaccuracies of the clutch piston during assembly of the CVT transmission, there is a possibility the rubber seal may become damaged during operation. This could produce an oil leak causing the clutch to operate incorrectly or affect the acceleration responsiveness of the vehicle.
Our priority is identifying owners of these vehicles and contacting them to ensure their vehicles are assessed and, if required, remedied at their earliest convenience.
Toyota is globally not aware of any incidents caused by this possible fault.
