Hanoi (VNA) – Toyota Vietnam, Japan’s automobile manufacturer in Vietnam, is calling 360 cars in Lexus RX200t and Lexus RX350 models to repair and replace the Electrical Control Unit (ECU) electrically controlling back door opening/closing, according to the Vietnam Competition Authority (VCA) under the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

According to the VCA, the programme is applied to models sold in Vietnam and manufactured in the period from 2015 to 2016.

For Lexus RX200t and Lexus RX350 not imported by Toyota Vietnam, if consumers request, Toyota Vietnam will consult with Toyota in Japan to check and verify information based on the VIN.

If the VIN belongs to the recalling programme, Toyota will examine and replace free of charge.

Updating the ECU for each vehicle takes about 1.4 hours and related costs are paid by Toyota. The programme will last until the end of December 5, 2017, at Toyota Lexus outlets throughout the country.

The VCA has been supervising the recalling programme and will update information for consumers and media agencies in upcoming time.-VNA
