NO STEERING DEFECT ON MALAYSIAN MARKET COROLLA (COROLLA ALTIS)
KUALA LUMPUR, — UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd says there are no complaints on power steering in Toyota Corolla models in Malaysia so far.
This is due to the different body and size, thus different components used as compared with models in the U.S., it said in a statement Friday.
“We would like to reaffirm and emphasise to our customers in Malaysia that all Toyota Corolla models sold by us are not affected by this issue,” it said in response to reports that the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was investigating power steering complaints on Toyota Corolla models in America.
On the recall of Toyota Tacoma pick-ups in the U.S. due to defective drive shafts, UMW Toyota Motor clarified that the model was not sold in Malaysia and was completely different from the Hilux pick-up sold by the company.
“The drive shaft used in our pick-up model is different from the one used in Toyota Tacoma,” it said.
