      Toyota recalls Etios twins

      Toyota to recall 40K Etios and Liva manufactured until October 08 for possible cracks in their hose pipe and fuel pipe

      -- Toyota to voluntarily recall Etios sedan, Liva hatchback cars
      -- Inspect cars as a precautionary measure
      -- To inspect vehicles made until Oct. 8 since their introduction
      -- Says faulty parts pose no "immediate" safety threats to customers

      It will inspect the cars made since their launch, Sandeep Singh, deputy managing director of marketing at Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd., told Dow Jones Newswires over the phone Thursday. "We noticed the fault on our own and, as a precautionary step, we are voluntarily inspecting the cars." These faults don't pose any "immediate" safety threats, he added.

      Toyota launched the Etios sedan in December last year and the hatchback, based on the same platform, in June.
      "Our dealers are contacting customers to get their cars inspected. We are in no hurry to complete this exercise and we'll inspect the cars as and when customers bring them to the showrooms," Singh said. He didn't disclose the cost of the recall.

      Kudos to Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. Atleast toyota arent being sleazy like Maruti, Hyundai or Ford trying to replace parts without the knowledge of the customer.

      Will they replace only those hose pipe and fuel pipe?

      What about that water entering inside car via door rubber beading during rainy time issue? When are they going to resolve that problem?

      EDIT : Here is the link for that from TBHP

      08 refers to date and not year.

      Within 2 months they are recalling the cars. Good that they found out now itself rather than after an year where the recall would be a huge number.
