Toyota recalls 23,000 units of Corolla Altis in India

Faulty airbag inflators manufactured by Takata continues to haunt Toyota Motor Corp. The Japanese automaker recalled around 2.9 million vehicles in Japan, China, Oceania and other regions, including India, where nearly 23,000 units of the Corolla Altis sedan have been recalled. The affected car models in the country were manufactured between 2010 and 2012. The affected customers will be notified and repairs will be done free-of-cost.

Globally, transport authorities consider Takata inflators, containing the chemical compound ammonium nitrate to be risky, especially if it is employed without a drying agent. This has resulted in withdrawal of all 100 million airbags in the market. A total of 1.16 million vehicles will be recalled in the markets of Oceania and Middle East combined while 750,000 units have been called back from the Japanese market.

Toyota recently launched the 2017 Corolla Altis with fresh cosmetic upgrades to the interior and exterior. The vehicle continues to be powered by a 1.8-litre petrol and a 1.4-litre diesel engines. The Corolla Altis is priced at Rs 15.87 lakh to Rs 19.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the top-spec model. The recall will be conducted in a phased manner and the affected owners will be contacted in the days to come.
