Toyota recalls 1,200 cars in S'pore

Toyota recalls 1,200 cars in S'pore



The Lexus IS 250, Mark X, Crown, Voxy, Wish and Noah models are affected.

Toyota's most recent recall of 1.7 million vehicles worldwide has affected some 1,200 cars in Singapore, The Straits Times (ST) reported.

Of the affected cars here, 733 Lexus IS 250 sedans were sold by Borneo Motors, and 479 assorted models by numerous parallel importers.

The affected parallel imports consist of 441 Toyota Mark X, 18 Crown, 11 Voxy, four Wish, four Noah, and one Isis, according to the Land Transport Authority.

Defects in the affected models are not universal. For example, the glitch in the Lexus and Mark X models is related to insufficient tightening of the fuel pressure sensor connected to the engine fuel delivery pipe.

Correction of the faults, which could all lead to fuel leaks at worst, is expected to be carried out after Chinese New Year.

It will take two to three house to fix each car, Borneo Motors marketing director Klaus Redomske told ST. He said the company was compiling the list of customers affected, and will contact them after the festive holiday.

Mr Jacky Wong, director of Toyota parallel importer Richburg told ST that his company would contact affected customers by next week. He said one Wish sold by the company was found to be affected, but they will check again to see if there are others.

Last year, Singapore cars were also involved in Toyota's recalls of the Prius hybrid (to fix the coolant pump) and the Lexus GS and RX models (to fix brake fluid leaks).

The carmaker, however, is still Singapore's best-selling marque for the ninth straight year, although sales dipped 60 per cent to 6,927 units largely due to a reduced supply of certificates of entitlement.

Toyota also in 2010 remained the world's biggest carmaker for three years in a row, selling 8.43 million vehicles, an 8 per cent increase from 2009 figures.
