What are the defects?

There is a possibility that the electric motor installed in the hybrid system water pump may stop functioning, leading to illumination of various warning lights on the instrument panel.

What are the hazards?

The electric power supply circuit fuse may open, causing the hybrid system to stop while the vehicle is being driven. If left unchecked, the car could go into 'limp-home' or 'fail-safe' mode, resulting in the engine power being cut.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by mail at their last known address. Owners are advised to contact their authorised Toyota dealership for inspection and rectification.
