A recall campaign is usually initiated by the manufacturer to address a potential concern about the safety of a product. All sorts of products can be recalled, such as food, toys, electrical goods and tools. Every year, millions of cars are recalled by many manufacturers for various reasons. Toyota is no exception. We care about the safety of our customers and therefore, we strive to recall and service cars as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Car owners will be notified by a letter or a phone call. In addition to that, owners can use the recall checker available here to check if their car has been affected by any recall. All they need to do, is enter the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Alternatively, owners can log in to their personal site (if they have a user account and have registered their car there), or call a Toyota dealer to get that information.

Your car’s VIN is in the car registration document. It's a 17-digit-long number which contains letters and numbers. You can also find it on the car itself. For the exact location, check your owner manual.

If appointments for a specific recall campaign are already available in your region, you can book one online, or call a Toyota dealer to schedule it.

You may be contacted by your Toyota dealer, Toyota head office or the local automotive authority in your country depending on your local regulation.
