Toyota New Zealand has recalled a number of cars as part of a global recall. The recall is precautionary at the moment and there have been no reported accidents or incidents related to any of these recalls, either in New Zealand or internationally.
This recall affects a number of new and imported cars. More detailed information is available on the Toyota NZ website.
Spiral cable fault:
Seat rail mechanism:
Steering column bracket
Clogged drain outlet:
Engine starter recall
This affects Ractis vehicles manufactured in 2013 and sold new in Hong Kong. It is unlikely any of these vehicles were imported into New Zealand but Toyota New Zealand is checking.
Toyota New Zealand says it will contact owners of affected vehicles to make arrangements to fix the problem. However, if you bought one of these models second hand, either privately or from a dealer other than Toyota, you should contact Toyota NZ on 0800 TOYOTA or your local Toyota dealer.
