Toyota Ireland recalls certain Corolla, GR Yaris, Highlander and Rav 4 passenger vehicles

SEPTEMBER 7, 2021

Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain Corolla, GR Yaris, Highlander and Rav 4 passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified with the affected vehicles which are equipped with a DCM (Data Communication Module). In addition to other services, this DCM supports an emergency calling system (eCall), which enables emergency calls to be made manually, or in the event of certain severe crashes, automatically. Due to a specific software update error that can cause an abrupt reset, there is a possibility that this DCM may become damaged and no longer be able to initiate an emergency call.

There are 6184 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between September 2020 to March 2021.

What to do:

Toyota Ireland will directly contact all affected customers by post advising them to make an appointment with their local Authorised Repairer where any necessary repairs/replacements of parts will be carried out. To check if your vehicle is affected by this recall campaign, please visit the Toyota Recall Checker and input your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). If you believe that your vehicle may be impacted by this recall, then you can contact Toyota Ireland's Contact Centre by phone on 1800 111 133 or by email at [email protected]
