Toyota has initiated a recall of 15 HiLux utes, due to the compliance plate being incorrectly fitted.
Toyota Australia has issued a recall of 15 examples of its 2020 Hilux (MY20).
The recall notice, which is expected to be lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the legally-required compliance label was incorrectly affixed to the vehicles.
Affected HiLux utes were manufactured between 1 June 2020 and 4 August 2020. Toyota is contacting owners to organise a free replacement of the compliance plate.
The label certifies that a vehicle complies with Australian Design Rules, mandating safety, anti-theft, and emissions regulations.
Vehicles with the issue had a VIN range of 00022245 to 00121497 – though it’s worth noting the majority of utes within the range do not have the problem.
