Toyota C-HR and Yaris Recall


Toyota Australia has issued an urgent recall notice for the Toyota C-HR, Yaris, Yaris Cross and GR Yaris vehicles built between May 2020 and August 2021 citing an issue with the vehicles pre-collision system setup.

Toyota Australia has indicated 18,490 vehicles have been affected.

In a released statement, Toyota has said “The subject vehicles are equipped with a Millimetre Wave Sensor (radar sensor) and a camera to detect objects, such as another vehicle in front of the subject vehicle. The radar sensor used by the Pre-Collision System (PCS) may not have been initialised properly in the involved vehicles during production. As a result, the PCS may be inoperative with no warning indicator to the driver.”

  • Vehicles in front are not detected and the vehicle icon the Multi-Information Display (MID) will not be shown while using DRCC.
