Hanoi (VNA) - Toyota Vietnam said it is recalling 16 Corolla Altis 2017 sedans to check and fix their rear shock absorber between now and March 15, 2019.

The cars were made in Vietnam between August 11 and 12 last year. Due to a production mistake, their rear shock absorber are spun rather than staying in its fixed position, thus posing a risk of colliding with surrounding features and making noise.

The faulty can be fixed in about two hours per car free of charge at Toyota agents nationwide.

Toyota Vietnam said it has to date recorded no reports on abnormal noise from customers. It is recalling the cars to ensure benefits for clients.

The upgraded Corolla Altis 2017 was introduced in August last year and became available for purchase at the end of September. It has five models, sold at prices ranging between 702 to 936 million VND (30,958 – 41,277 USD).-VNA
