Toyota Vehicle Recall Announcement from the Consumer Council of Fiji.

With the ongoing global recalls affecting over fifteen automotive brands due to faulty airbags, fuel pump and brake booster issues, the Consumer Council of Fiji is urging Fijian consumers to verify if their vehicles may be affected by this recall.

 

Consumers who own one of the following Toyota car models are urged to contact Asco Motors at the earliest:

Toyota FJ Cruiser (GSJ15): Model Years 2013-2015- fuel pump issue- 12 units

Toyota Corolla (ZRE172): Model Years 2017-2019- fuel pump issue- 10 units

Newly released Toyota Fortuner and Hilux – released on 02 December 2020 – requiring the Brake Booster Part inspection and replacement- 185 units.

 

The Council Chief Executive Officer Ms Seema Shandil says that is it of utmost importance that consumers confirm if their vehicles are affected to ensure their safety and the safety of other road users is not compromised.

“Whilst there are systems and processes in place by manufacturers to ensure that the quality and safety of products such as vehicles are maintained at the highest level, at times certain issues are discovered at a later stage – prompting a recall such as the current one.

As inconvenient as it may be, consumers with the models as mentioned above of Toyota vehicles must contact Asco Motors immediately to ensure the that consumers get redress if required,” stated Ms Shandil.

The Council is working closely with Asco Motors Fiji to ensure any consumer affected by this recall is identified and provided with a speedy resolution.

“Due to the urgency of the issues, the Council is calling on relevant stakeholders such as Land Transport Authority and Car dealers to work together to track down all the vehicles affected by this recall as some of the vehicles may have changed ownership over time,” added Ms Shandil.

The Council is encouraging Fijian consumers who suspect that they may be affected by this recall or have any queries to contact the Consumer Council of Fiji via the toll-free number 155 or email complaints@consumersfiji.org.fj. Consumers can also directly contact Asco Motors or visit their nearest branch.
