Toyota Hilux Recall

Recommended Posts

I got a recall notice in the post about the airbag on my Hilux. Apparently in an accident it could explode and spray metal shrapnel round the cabin. Nice. They said they'd be in touch once they had the parts to fix it.

I phoned them today to ask how long it was likely to be and was told they could do it next Monday. I asked them if Toyota suggested I should just be without a car till then, or whether they recommended I drive it and risk serious injury. (No right answer there, notice.) They said they would deliver me a courtesy car tomorrow until then. Fair play!

I recommend any Hiliux owners on here check to see if their truck is affected. 👍

The older l200’s had the same recall. It depends how worried you are but I never got the time to have it done. It’s all fine as long as you don’t test it!

Had the same issue with a nissan almaera tino.   Never got it fixed.  Bought another one and after 2 years thought better of it and got it fixed under recall, car is 13 yrs old but all done under the recall.  Seems quite common?

My 15 year old Nissan Terrano was recalled for this, it’s a global thing, I think the country’s that are at risk were more the humid country’s rather than the uk, they were all recalled ages ago, they are just getting round to us now!

Im waiting for mine to get a bit dirtier, they do a valet after they have played with the air bag thingy. My previous Invincible had the same re-call, thought they would have sorted it by now. 1 issue i do have though is the poor MPG, its a newer model (Feb 2016) improved emissions and extra gear on the auto box yet less MPG than one 9 years older. Seriously thinking of having it chipped.

Quite a few owners have complained about poor mpg. Must be a thing with them.
