In the past two weeks, vehicle recall notices have been issued by Toyota and Volvo for a range of safety concerns.
A number of 2020 Toyota Corolla hatch hybrid (ZWE211) and petrol (MZEA12) vehicles have been recalled (VINs found here) due to an issue which may see the reverse lights stop working.
This may be due to a problem with the wiring harness located at the back door losing electrical contact over time. The loss of reverse lights may increase the risk of an accident or injury occurring to vehicle occupants and other road users due to the decreased visibility of the vehicle and lack of indication of reversing movements.
Toyota will contact known owners in writing to advise of the recall initially then again when parts for repair are available, expected in late June 2020.
Also recalled were several 2019-2020 Volvo S60, V60, V90 Cross Country, XC60, XC90 and XC40 vehicles (VINs found here) which may have an issue with a missing software code in the Active Safety Domain Master (ASDM).
The lack of this code may result in the Automatic Emergency Brake (AEB) system not triggering the automatic brakes, increasing the risk of a collision and injury.
Affected owners are encouraged to contact their preferred Volvo dealer to arrange a software upgrade.
A recall notice has also been issued for 32 examples of the 2020 Volvo XC40 (VINs found here) which may have an issue with one of the nuts connecting the brake coaster to the vehicle’s frame missing. This may lead to reduced brake performance.
Affected owners are asked to contact their preferred Volvo dealer to arrange an inspection and repair if necessary.
