More than 200 examples of the Toyota Yaris Cross have been recalled in Australia as incorrect tyres could be fitted to the city SUV.
Toyota Australia has recalled 245 examples of the 2023 Toyota Yaris Cross as they could be fitted with tyres which do not meet Australian regulations.
The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “Toyota Australia has identified the involved vehicles were equipped with tyres that did not correctly align with the Australian Design Rules (ADR) certification requirements for this model.
“As a result of this tyre fitment, some performance characteristics may vary slightly from the certification data.
“This matter is a compliance matter only, there are no safety concerns with the tyres presently fitted to your vehicle.”
A full list of vehicle identification numbers for the 245 vehicles involved in the recall can be found here.
Toyota Australia has advised it will contact owners of affected vehicles to schedule an appointment to have the correct tyres fitted, free of charge – a process which it claims should take approximately two hours.
Alternatively, owners can contact Toyota’s Recall Assist Support Line via phone on 1800 987 366 or by email at [email protected] and quote their car’s 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
