Toyota global recall of 2.4 million vehicles……reconditioned buyers take note


This global Toyota recall affects vehicles in Japan, Europe, USA and other regions. Following a domestic recall announcement by Japan’s transport ministry, Toyota said that in affected vehicles, the wire harness that connects to the hybrid power control unit can come into contact with the covering at the connection point.

If dust accumulates on the wire harness or the cover, the insulation on the wires could wear down over time due to vehicle vibrations. This could cause a short circuit, which could generate heat and lead to a risk of fire, Toyota said.

The recall includes the popular Prius and Auris vehicles produced between October 2008 and November 2014. The recall also affects vehicles produced in Japan between June 2015 and May 2018 (so if you bought a reconditioned/gray import then you are in trouble) and includes the plug-in version of the Prius and the C-HR sold in Japan, Europe, Australia and other countries.
