Toyota Conducts Safety Recall On Certain Toyota Corolla Hatchbacks


Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2019 Model Year Corolla Hatchback vehicles in Canada. Approximately 973 vehicles are involved.

In the involved vehicles, there is a possibility the torque converter in the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) could fail. Under certain conditions this could result in a loss of motive power. Loss of motive power while driving at higher speeds could increase the risk of a crash.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the Direct Shift-CVT with a new one containing a new torque converter not affected by this issue at no cost to customers. Toyota is currently preparing the remedy. Known owners of all involved vehicles will receive direct notification via first-class mail beginning in late January 2019.
