Toyota announces global Recall of 6.39 million vehicles

April 11, 2014 at 1:16 PM 1 comment


toyota-recall Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. today (April 09, 2014) announced that it will conduct a voluntary safety recall involving approximately 1.3 million vehicles, including certain Model Year 2009-2010 Corolla, 2009-2010 Matrix, 2008-2010 Highlander, 2009-2010 Tacoma, 2006-2008 RAV4 and 2006-2010 Yaris vehicles.

The driver’s airbag module in the involved vehicles is attached to a spiral cable assembly with electrical connections that could become damaged when the steering wheel is turned.  If this occurs, the air bag warning lamp will illuminate.  In addition, the driver’s air bag could become deactivated, causing it to not deploy in the event of a crash.20144955216385734_20

Toyota is not aware of any injuries or fatalities caused by this condition.

Toyota is currently preparing the remedy for this condition.  For all involved vehicles, a Toyota dealer will replace the spiral cable with an improved one. Once preparations are complete, Toyota will send an owner notification letter by first class mail and the remedy will be provided at no charge.

Detailed information is available to customers at http://www.toyota.com/recall, the Toyota Customer Experience at 1 800-331-4331, http://www.lexus.com/recall and Lexus Customer Satisfaction (1 800-255-3987).

    දෝෂ නිසා යළි කැඳවූ ටොයොටා වාහන ලංකාවෙත් තිබෙනවාදැයි අවධානය

    ජාත්‍යන්තර මාධ්‍ය ඊයේ වාර්තා කර තිබුණේ ටොයොටා විසින් ලෝකය පුරා විකුණා තිබෙන වාහන ලක්ෂ 64 ක් විවිධ තාක්ෂණික දෝෂ නිසා නැවතත් සමාගම වෙත කැඳවීමට තීරණය කර තිබෙන බවයි.

    මෙම වාහන අතර ශ්‍රී ලංකාවට අලෙවිකර තිබෙන වාහන තිබෙනවාදැයි අප ටොයොටා ලංකා සමාගමේ සේවා අංශයේ සාමාන්‍යාධිකාරී, මකීෂ සමරනායක මහතාගෙන් විමසූ අවස්ථාවේදී ඔහු අදහස් දැක්වූයේ මෙසේයි.

    “අපි මේ පිළිබඳව විමසිල්ලෙන් ඉන්නේ. මේ පිළිබඳව ජපානයෙන් අපිට ඉක්මනටම දැනුම් දේවි. අපි බලාපොරොත්තු වෙනවා එහි ප්‍රතිඵල අපගේ පාරිභෝගිකයින්ට දින 02 ක් ඇතුළත කියන්න.“

    “මීට පෙර ටොයොටා Prius හයිබ්‍රීඩ් රථවල තාක්ෂණික දෝෂයක් නිසා නැවත කැඳවීම ලංකාවටත් බලපෑවා. අපි ලංකාවට විකුණා තිබෙන එම මෝටර් රථවල තිබෙන තාක්ෂණික දෝෂය මේ වනවිට නිවැරදි කරමින් සිටිනවා.“

    “ලංකාවට විකුණා තිබෙන ටොයොටා වාහනවල ප්‍රශ්නයක් මේ අවස්ථාවේදී ඇතිවුණොත් අපි සූදානම් සමාගම වෙත එම වාහන ගෙන්වාගෙන ඒවා නිවැරදි කර දෙන්න.“

    පසුගිය පෙබරවාරි මාසයේදී ටොයොටා Prius හයිබ්‍රීඩ් රථ මිලියන 1.9 ක් නැවතත් සමාගම වෙත ගෙන්වා ගැනීමට ටොයොටා තීරණය කළේ එම වාහන හදිසියේ මන්දගාමී වීමට හේතුවන මෘදුකාංග ප්‍රශ්නයක් විසඳීම සඳහායි.
