Thousands of popular vehicles on Australian roads may have faulty brakes and Toyota is issuing a safety recall.
The major automaker is concerned that the bug applies to Diesel HiLux and Fortuner vehicles manufactured between June 2018 and December 2018.
« Inside the brake booster of the vehicles involved, the strength of the resin piston could deteriorate due to improper molding conditions during production, » the company said in its recall.
“In this case, repeated use of the brake pedal can cause the piston to break, possibly leading to a loss of braking assistance and thus increasing the vehicle’s braking distance.
“The Toyota dealers will check all vehicles involved and replace the brake booster assembly free of charge if necessary. ”
The replacement is expected to take three hours, but anyone who owns this vehicle is encouraged to contact their local dealer for timing information.
Toyota says it will text the owners of these vehicles, but is also encouraged to check the detailed list of vehicles that are faulted on the recall website here.
