The announcement further details that vehicles with the offending transmissions may experience issues where the gear selector “may not match the expected vehicle behaviour.” As far as we can work out, that either means that the gear selected may not match the position of the gear lever, or that the gear lever won’t budge from certain positions.
Toyota expressed concerns of increased accident risk should the issue occur. A list of VIN numbers of affected vehicles can be viewed here.
Owners will be contacted by Toyota Australia via mail, but we recommend calling the Toyota customer care line at 1800-869-682 for more details.
