615 four-wheel-drives and utes flagged for incorrect compliance labels – though not all examples have strictly been recalled.
Toyota Australia has recalled (or, in certain cases, issued a warning on) 541 examples of the 2015-20 LandCruiser 200 Series four-wheel-drive and 74 examples of the HiLux ute for an issue with the compliance label.
The recall notice comprises 400 LandCruiser 200 Sahara Horizon vehicles built from December 2019 to January 2020, 141 LandCruiser 200 VX and Sahara models built from September 2015 to July 2019, and 74 selected examples of the HiLux Workmate Hi-Rider 4×2 ute, made between April 2019 and May 2020.
It’s worth noting the Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series Sahara Horizon models are covered under a ‘Customer Service Initiative’ (CSE), rather than a full recall, as with the VX and Sahara variants, and the 74 HiLux utes.
According to a bulletin issued by Toyota, “the vehicles are fitted with a compliance label that is required to certify the vehicle meets Australian Motor Vehicle standards. The compliance label on the affected vehicles contains incorrect information due to an administrative error.”
The LandCruiser 200 Sahara Horizon vehicles show an incorrect category designation, the LandCruiser 200 VX and Sahara list an incorrect seating capacity of eight (instead of seven) people, and the HiLux vehicles claim an incorrect gross vehicle mass (GVM) of 2850kg, rather than 3050kg.
Toyota Australia says dealers will replace the compliance label free of charge, with the work expected to take around 30 minutes. To find your nearest Toyota dealer, click here.
Owners of all affected vehicles will be contacted by SMS (text), email or mail, while those with additional questions about the recall urged to contact their local dealer, or call the Toyota Recall Campaign Helpline on 1800 987 366, between Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm AEDT.
