Japanese carmaker Toyota has issued a recall of nearly 1000 units of the recently launched Toyota Hyryder. Although the exact number of vehicles recalled is 994. The hyryder was a successor to the now-discontinued Urban Cruiser which was a rebadged and slightly tweaked version of the Maruti Suzuki Brezza.
Reason behind the recall?
- This Toyota Hyryder recall has been initiated due to a faulty seat belt shoulder height adjuster.
- Toyota suspects that the defect is in one of the child parts of the seat belt shoulder height adjuster assembly which could lead to its disassembly.
- Under the recall, the faulty part will be replaced for free at the brand’s authorized service stations.
- Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by their respective dealerships.
- Although, no failure or accident has been reported as of now.
- It is also suspected that a few units of the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara can also get affected as the brand produces both models at its manufacturing facility in Bidadi, Karnataka.
Any other mechanical issues?
- Apart from the seatbelt adjuster issue, no other mechanical issues have been reported till now.
- With that said, the Urban Cruiser Hyryder comes with a 1.5-litre pure petrol engine with a mild and strong hybrid option.
- This 1.5-litre petrol mill comes paired with a 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearbox.
- While the hybrid variants get an e-CVT (planetary gearbox).
- In a new development over 9,000 Grand Vitara, XL6 and Ertiga have also been recalled due to the same issue.
