Toyota has recalled the Fortuner SUV and Innova Crysta voluntarily in order to calibrate and identify if there is any problem in fuel hose routing in certain models in India.
The recall is meant only for the Fortuner and Innova Crysta petrol-powered vehicles whose manufacturing date is from July 21, 2016, to March 22, 2018, and the company has perceived the models “as a measure of abundant precaution". Toyota mentioned in a statement that the affected vehicles will be repaired and replaced with parts which are necessary to inspect.
The relevant customers will be informed by the company separately in India. The concerned customers can contact the dealer to know if their cars are required to recall and inspect. The Japanese carmaker will not charge anything in return for repair and replacement of such vehicles. This is, although not a very first time when the Innova Crysta is recalled by the company.
Previously, Toyota recalled the Innova Crysta vehicles manufactured from April 2016 to January 2018 in May 2018. Meantime, the company announced a recall for Toyota Fortuner as well for affected models manufactured from October 2016 to November 2017. This time the recall was for the wiring harness of the MPV and the SUV.
The Toyota Fortuner and the Innova Crysta are very important launches of the company as they are segment leaders and attract high traffic to the company in relevant segments. The Innova Crysta prices begin from Rs. 13.52 lakh and extends up to Rs. 22.15 lakh considering top-end diesel automatic variant. On the other side, the Toyota Fortuner is available at a starting price of Rs. 26.69 lakh which extends up to Rs. 32.48 lakh for a top-range variant of the model in India.
