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.
