The Hazard!

Corolla CVT Transmission: The subject vehicles are equipped with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). There is a possibility that, due to an error in the manufacturing process that some of the impeller pump blades in the torque converter may break away, if the vehicle is frequently operated in higher load conditions, such as under rapid acceleration from a low speed. Damage to the torque converter and potentially a loss of motive power may occur. Loss of motive power while driving at higher speeds could increase the risk of crash.

What to do...

As an owner of an involved vehicle, you will be contacted by registered letter requesting you to contact your nearest authorised Toyota dealer to arrange a convenient time to have the repairs completed at no cost. Alternatively, contact Toyota's Customer Dialogue Centre to discuss.
