Nearly 5834 units are recalled
Toyota India has recently announced a recall of Diesel version its popular sedan Corolla Altis which are manufactured in the period of 15 June 2010 to 23 May 2011. According to the report issued by the company, this recall is voluntary and is announced as a part of the ‘Voluntary recall policy’ adopted by SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers). The reason behind announcing this recall is to replace a part which prevents the oil seepage into the air intake system. The failure of this part allows oil to enter into the air intake system thereby lowering the efficiency of that system.
Toyota has observed such cases on some of the Corolla vehicles and hence decided to recall the vehicles. This problem has not lead to any accident or injury so far. Toyota dealers will contact the owners of the affected vehicles in person and to get the appointment for the repair work which will be carried out free of charge.
