No ‘recall’ yet for Nassco
THE LATEST INTERNATIONAL RECALL of Toyota vehicles as a result of faulty airbags is yet to trickle down to the local market.
But local car dealer Nassco has been dealing with previous recalls, some dating back to 2013.
Recently, the Japanese vehicle maker announced it would be recalling another 5.8 million vehicles worldwide, because of exploding Tanaka airbags. The recall mainly affects Europe, Japan and China and brings the number of Toyota vehicles recalled to about 23 million.
“There was one big massive recall of five million but so far we have not been notified of anything on that, and usually we are notified before it goes to the media,” said managing director of Nassco, the local dealers for Toyota, Roger Hill, adding the Japanese car maker was “very, very strict” when it came to the safety of customers.
