Problem Description

A crack could develop in the fuel evaporative emission control unit which is attached to the fuel tank. When the fuel tank is full, fuel could leak from the crack which, in the presence of an ignition source, could lead to a vehicle fire.

The recall concerns vehicles which have been produced from 2006 to 2015

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, the motor industry standards body Motor Codes offers a Vehicle Safety Recall search. By using this, any recalls that are active for your car can be identified. To use this facility, you’ll need the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for your car – this is a long code number that appears on the chassis plate of your car or – on most UK-registered cars – in the bottom-left corner of your windscreen.

If it’s confirmed there’s an active recall for your car, you should make contact with a Toyota dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer. Usually that’ll be your nearest franchised dealership, or ‘main dealer’ as they’re sometimes known.
