Problem Description

In the electric power steering control module of the vehicles concerned, condensed water droplets could attach between the terminals in the relay which supplies power to the power steering motor and cause a short circuit. If this occurred, the power steering assistance could stop working and an increased steering effort would have to be exerted by the driver.

The recall concerns vehicles built between 2010 and 2012.

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.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.

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.

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.
