Toyota Australia has today announced that it will initiate a safety recall involving Yaris and Yaris Cross vehicles produced between October 2019 to September 2020 (inclusive). The total number of vehicles involved in Australia is 1,295.
Within the hybrid transmission of involved vehicles, an improper application of anti-corrosion oil on the transmission input damper may cause abnormal slippage during rapid acceleration. This may cause the warning light to illuminate and subsequently, potentially cause the hybrid system to stop.
For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the input damper free of charge to customers.
It is expected that it will take approximately 8.5 hours to replace the input damper. However, depending upon the Dealer’s work schedule, it may be necessary for the owner to make the vehicle available for a longer period of time.
