Toyota Motor Corporation — Toyota Corolla Hatch Hybrid (ZWE211) and Corolla Hatch Petrol (MZEA12) MY2020
What are the defects?
The reverse lights may stop working due to a wiring harness located at the back door losing electrical contact over time.
What are the hazards?
Loss of reverse lights may reduce the visibility of the vehicle and provide no indication that the vehicle is reversing, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to the vehicle occupants, other road users or pedestrians.
What should consumers do?
Toyota will contact affected owners in writing with an interim notification advising of this safety recall. Toyota will re-contact once parts become available to request that owners make an appointment at their preferred Toyota dealer for repairs, free of charge. Parts are expected to become available in late June 2020.
Owners of affected vehicles should update their contact details with Toyota if these have changed so that future communications can be received.
For further information, consumers should contact the Toyota Recall Assist helpline on 1800 987 366 (Monday to Friday, 8am - 6pm AEST).
