Toyota recalls 119 Camry cars in India

Toyota has issued a notice to recall 119 units of Camry, the models recalled are manufactured between 2011 March and July. The vehicles are built in Japan, and the worn out part is the defective front suspension. The malfunctioning of the front suspension of the Camry has had a grave effect on the profit outcome of the car, around 1.7 lakh units are affected all over the world.

The Indian unit of the parent Japanese firm Toyota Kirloskar Motor has initiated the recall by alerting consumers of 119 units, and the damage will be rectified free of cost. The main area of defect is the loose ball joint and the aftermath consequences are likely to be severe, there are chances of the driver losing control and the entire replacement process will be completed in two hours.

An important point to consider is, no complaints have been put forward in India, about a faulty front suspension on Camry. Toyota is instigating the move as part of a cautionary voluntary recall. The company is concerned about the recall and is apologetic about the incident, and hopes to have the understanding and attention of consumers. Toyota Kirloskar Motor has assured its customers of its desire to fulfill the needs and concerns of consumers all through the recall and re-fixing process.

The Toyota Camry is a top selling car worldwide, and is a best seller in North America, the current car is the seventh generation model and Toyota is banking on this model to capture the luxury car market. Camry is assembled in Bangalore in the form of completely knocked down units.
