The Japanese car maker has announced a recall of its two premium cars Toyota Camry and Toyota Corolla Altis in India. This is part of the global recall. This is considered to be the first major recall (globally and in India) by Toyota and as per the official statement, over 8700 Toyota cars have been recalled in India. It included those Corolla Altis cars that were produced between end of July 2008 to the end of December 2008. Meanwhile those Camry produced between the start of September to the end of July 2008 have been included in this recall. The recall is a minor repair and the car maker will be inspecting the power window master switch to check that it is functioning properly.
Notably, this is a minor recall and Toyota will be checking and if needed will be replacing it. If the switch is found faulty it will be replaced. This minor glitch is in no way a damage to the car as this does not affect the car in any way or cause any injury or threat of injury to the occupants of the car. As per the company, only these two cars have been recalled and no other Toyota car models will be considered under this call back. Toyota has said in an official communication that the selected customers will be informed soon and the recall will begin by November this year. The customers whose car come under this recall can also approach any of the Toyota dealers across the country and this faulty part will be checked and if needed replaced. The whole process is expected to take around one hour.

If the recall would have been of the latest models, the number could have been much more. Toyota cars are among the most dependable cars and models such as Toyota Innova
, Toyota Etios
and Toyota Etios Liva
besides other models are considered to be low maintenance cars.
