Toyota Recalls the 75 thousand vehicles as announced

Toyota will be recalling 75 thousand vehicles across the UK.Toyota are planning to recall models from the Corolla, Avensis and Prius ranges. In particular models from July 2001 to March 2009 for the Avensis or Corollas, or the Prius’ between July 2003 and April 2009.

Toyota has announced that it is committed to ensuring the safety of people who chose to drive their vehicles and the vehicles quality and performance.Toyota have promised to stretch this quality to not only their new models but to their older models too, and maintaining that is of the upmost importance to them.

They say that their rigorous monitoring of the cars that they provide allow them to quickly access and deal with issues such as this one.
Apparently the issue is to do with a component in the steering that causes a rattling or a knocking sound, and maybe even a reduction in the response when steering. AlthoughToyota maintain that even though this may be a slight issue cars will still remain safe to drive. They will be sending out letters with regards to when these cars need to be recalled, so if you have one, be on the lookout for one of these letters in the post. If you are looking for a faster solution you should also be able to take it into your local dealership and get it sorted out promptly.

Again with a quick reaction like this, it is very difficult to see anything truly negative about this recall. Toyota’s quick reaction to making sure of the safety of road users in their cars before any actual incidents have even occurred, really gives you some confidence that they are looking out for your best interest. If you’re worried that your car may be recalled the best thing to do is to contact your local Toyota dealership.
