Toyota NZ recalling 1300 Avensis vehicles

Toyota New Zealand has announced the recall of 1300 Avensis vehicles. Toyota dealerships require the cars to replace the fuel pipe after receiving advice from Toyota Japan that some pipes may have been thinner than specified when they were fitted to the new car.

Paul Carroll, General Manager of After Sales for Toyota New Zealand, says pipes which are thinner than specified could crack over time and eventually leak fuel.

“Only 119 cases of defective pipes have been found in the 1.3 million Avensis worldwide, but Toyota is taking a precautionary approach and replacing the pipes at no charge to the owners.”

The owners of Toyota Avensis sold new in New Zealand from 2003 to 2008 will be notified by letter and asked to contact their nearest Toyota dealer.
