Thread: Toyota recall

  1. #1

    Toyota recall

    Just received a recall notice through the post saying that my Hilux is in the affected vehicle range (it doesn't specify what that range is) but mine is a 2007 (57) plate. The problem is due to a clip on the airbag wiring system that could cause the drivers airbag to fail or become deactivated.
    I've had my Hilux from new so still receive dealer paperwork etc but if anyone out there has a second hand Toyota (not necessarily a Hilux) it could be worth a phone call to make sure yours is not affected. A help line number of 08008766750 or email toyota@vehiclerecalls.co.uk
    Was provided.
    Safe driving. Wingy
    unless you can prove it beyond all reasonable doubt, it wasn't me. If you can prove it then you must be mistaken

    Had one on my Rav4. They are tracked by Swansea for Toyota. Mine was not new.

    It's the spiral squib in the steering wheel housing I had mine fixed a week ago my air bag light had been on for over a year job done and a free valet as well

    I have had the same notice, when i bought my Hilux 4 years ago on a 56 plate the airbag light was on, bought it in Reading, my local Toyota garage in Exeter replaced the unit but i assume i will still have to take it in sometime.
    Cheers

    My understanding with recalls is that the company (Toyota or whoever) who does a safety recall will contact DVLA and ascertain details of all current owners of affected vehicles and then inform them. so in theory at any rate, it shouldn't matter whether you bought from a Toyota dealer or have one second hand from that feller in the pub. So long as you register it in your name, of course.

    Yeh, I agree I doubt very much they would do mine either lol!
    By three methods we may learn wisdom:
    First, by reflection, which is noblest;
    Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
    and third by experience, which is the bitterest
