Toyota recalls 119 units of Camry in India
New Delhi: Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) is recalling 119 units of its sedan Camry, manufactured between March and July 2011 in Japan and sold in India, to rectify a defect in front suspension. The move is part of a global recall of 1.7 lakh Camry models by Japanese parent Toyota Motor Corp, the world's biggest car manufacturer.
"The recall campaign will cover a total of 119 units sold in India and manufactured in Japan between March 2011 and July 2011," TKM said in a statement.
The recall has been announced due to a possible defect in the front suspension, it added.
The company said customers would be contacted by the authorised Toyota dealers and the vehicle repair, if necessary, will be done free of cost. "No complaints have been received in India so far.
However, the company is conducting this recall as a part of the Voluntary Recall code," TKM said. In April, the company had recalled 44,989 units of multi-purpose vehicle Innova manufactured between February 2005 and December 2008 in India to rectify a faulty cable on the steering wheel.
Earlier this month, German luxury car-maker Audi had recalled 6,758 units of A4 sedans in India, manufactured between November 2011 and October 2014, to upgrade software in airbag control unit.
