Nearly 30,000 Toyota cars recalled in Malaysia

By CARSIFU | 7 July 2015

SHAH ALAM: UMW Toyota Motor is making another round of recalls to check for defective Takata air bags.

The Toyota distributor said 29,985 cars are involved in the latest round and covered the Vios, Corolla Altis and Yaris that were manufactured from April 2007 to December 2008.

As is standard policy, any change in parts will be done free of charge.

The local announcement is part of a worldwide recall Toyota and Nissan made as they expanded the recall previously confined to North America.

According to a Reuters report, Toyota recalled on June 16 1.37 million vehicles in the United States after Takata agreed to comply with an order by US regulators to declare more inflators defective and expand the recalls.

Nissan said it was calling back 198,000 vehicles including the Navara, Caravan, and Teana built between April 2007 and December 2008, after a corresponding recall in the United States and Canada previously.

The cause of the potential defect in these recalls remains unknown. There have been no reports of accidents or injuries from the expanded recalls, both automakers said.

Call Toyota at 1800-88-69682 or Nissan at 1800-88-3838 for more information.
