Toyota Kirloskar Motors (TKM) has recalled a total number of approximately 8,700 Corolla Altis and Camry sedans in India. Cars sold between 2006 and 2008 are in the list. This recall is mainly to check and rectify any issue with the power window and master switch; both these are potential fire hazards. This recall process is a part of a global exercise by Toyota Motor Corporation.
“On certain Corolla Altis and Camry models of the specified years, the PWMS (power window master switch) may become inoperative. This can be due to wear and tear over time of specific contact points in PWMS”, TKM said in a statement.
Sale Date of the Cars which are Recalled
- Corolla Altis sold between July 30, 2008 and December 31, 2008
- Camry sold between September 1, 2006 and July 3, 2008
This campaign will be starting from the month of November at all authorized Toyota dealer across the country. Concerned customers will be intimated through phone call or letters.
The entire procedure of checking the aforementioned parts and any replacement will be completely free of cost. The entire job might take approximately one hour to complete. The company describes this as a precautionary measure carried out voluntarily and not a safety hazard.
So, if your Corolla Altis or Camry is sold between that period, expect a call from the dealer or better still get it confirmed proactively.
