SA spared latest Toyota recalls

2010-04-21 06:45
Local subsidiaries of Toyota and Lexus have confirmed that South Africa's vehicles are unaffected by the latest round of global recalls affecting the carmakers.

Toyota Motor Corporation on Monday announced a global recall campaign for its Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus GX 460 models.

Toyota SA has informed that only left-hand drive Land Cruiser Prados are affected by the recall campaign. An issue concerning the vehicle stability control of these vehicles is to be addressed, but since right hand drive models have a different weight distribution, the company says, local models are not affected.

Moreover, the Lexus GX 460, of which sales in the US have been temporarily suspended, is not sold in South Africa.

No other Toyota or Lexus models sold in South Africa are affected, the carmakers said.
