Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) is the latest car-maker in India to take back its vehicle for repair. It has issued a voluntary recall of 5,834 units of its Corolla Altis diesel variants in India to rectify a problem with the powertrain.
The recall is limited to the diesel variants of the Crolloa Altis, which were manufactured between 15 June 2010 and 23 May 2011, reports OverDrive. The owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted directly by the company to take the vehicle to Toyota's workshop to fix the problem with the engine parts, which is causing a leakage of oil into the air intake system. The replacement of the defective component will be done free of cost.
This is the second recall from Toyota in November. Earlier this month, the company had recalled its sedan Camry in India over a defective front suspension.
