Due to insufficient durability, the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) cooler may develop an internal coolant leak which could create smouldering deposits inside the EGR cooler and the intake manifold.
This may result in localised thermal damage in the intake system, which might lead to engine power reduction and to increased risk of fire.
The Toyota Verso models affected by this recall were manufactured between 2 March 2015 to 9 November 2017.
