Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has voluntarily announced the recall of its Corolla Altis (30th July 2008 – 31st Dec 2008) and Camry (1st Sep 2006 – 31st Jul 2008) in order to inspect the problem regarding the Power Window Master Switch (PWMS). This is in line with the recall announced by the Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) world-wide.
In a few of the Toyota Corolla Altis and Toyota Camry models of the specified years, the PWMS may become notchy or inoperative due to the wear and tear of specific contact points in the PWMS over-time. The owners, whose vehicles will be recalled, will be intimated by letter or a call from Toyota. The Recall campaign will commence from the month of November. TKM will conduct this campaign on a voluntary basis across all its dealerships in India. Even the customers can contact their nearest dealer to find out whether their vehicle falls under this campaign or not.
The dealers will check the vehicles and find out if any repair/replace is required which would be done without charging a penny to the vehicle owners. The repair is expected to take approximately one hour. Only Toyota Camry India and Toyota Corolla Altis India will be covered in this recall campaign In India.
The company will also circulate this to SIAM as a part of the voluntary code on vehicle recall. The company has also requested its customers not to panic as this is not a safety hazard but only a precautionary measure. This measure is not going to affect the Toyota Camry or Toyota Corolla Price in India.
