Re­call for HiLuxes

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Onroad -

AUS­TRALIA has fi­nally been hit by a ma­jor Toy­ota re­call.

Af­ter dodg­ing most of the fall­out from the eight mil­lion-plus ve­hi­cles re­called in the US and Europe, Toy­ota Aus­tralia has re­called 116,000 HiLux utes. It’s a ma­jor hit for our favourite work­horse, which topped sales charts for a cou­ple of months in re­cent years.

The re­call is trig­gered by a faulty bracket sup­port­ing the tail­shaft cen­tre bracket.

Only 19 cases were re­ported, but the prob­lem means the tail­shaft could de­tach from the ve­hi­cle.

Ve­hi­cles in­volved are four-wheeldrive, dual-cab mod­els built be­tween Jan­uary 29, 2005 and Fe­bru­ary 20, 2010 at the Toy­ota com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle fac­tory in Thai­land.
