Due to insufficient air flow efficiency in the intake system, oil may accumulate in the intercooler. Under certain driving conditions, the oil may flow into the combustion chamber and might cause engine damage, which may increase the risk of a fire in the engine compartment due to leaked oil.
The recall concerns vehicles manufactured between 2008 and 2014.
The recall affects models Yaris, Auris, Corolla, Verso-S, iQ and Urban Cruiser.

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.
