Specific transistors in the boost converter of the Intelligent Power Module (IPM) can be damaged by the high thermal stress caused by repeated driving under certain high-load driving patterns (e.g. from a stop, applying nearly full throttle and then gradually further accelerating to full throttle).
This may cause the hybrid system to be shut down without entering a failsafe mode. As a result, the vehicle may lose motive power while driving at higher speeds, increasing the risk of an accident.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Toyota dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
This notification is purely informative for the vehicle type you have selected. As these deficiencies often relate to specific components (engine type, bodywork, equipment), the recall may not apply to all vehicles of this type. First published in the Weekly overview reports of RAPEX notifications.
UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
