Toyota has issued to wo unrelated recalls this week, one for its C-HR small SUV and the other concerning the Tarago people mover.

In the case of the C-HR recall, a roll-away risk has been identified thanks to an electronic park brake that may not operate correctly.

The electronic park brake warning will illuminate but the brake itself may not operate creating a roll-away risk if the vehicle isn’t left in park.

Approximately 4886 vehicles are involved in the recall, produced between July 2016 and October 2017.

The recall for the Tarago concerns seat belt anchorage bolts that may not have been correctly tightened following the installation of the reverse camera system (an installation that occurs locally after vehicle assembly).

The incorrectly tightened bolts may affect seat belt performance, increasing the possibility of injury in the event of a collision - only the left-hand side seatbelts are removed and re-fitted during the camera install.

Affected Tarago models were produced between May 2016 and March 2017, with 739 cars invloved in the recall.

In both instances Toyota will contact owners in writing, advising them to arrange a free inspection and repair. Owners wishing to know more can contact the Toyota recall hotline on 1800 987 366.
