Malawi is not affected by Toyotaâ€™s voluntary recall of its vehicles, Business News has established.
Last week, Toyota voluntarily recalled over seven million vehicles worldwide.
The recall includes vehicles such as Yaris, Vios, Corolla, Matrix, Auris, Camry, RAV4, Highlander, Tundra, Sequoia, xB and xD produced between 2005 and 2010 over faulty window switches.
Toyota Malawi executive director Rosemary Mkandawire yesterday said Malawi is not affected by the recall.
The recall affects 1.39 million cars in Europe, 2.47 million in the US and 1.4 million in China.
Toyota said there had been no reports of accidents, injuries or deaths as a result of the window problem.
Toyota is also recalling 459 000 vehicles in Japan, 650 000 in Australia and Asia, as well as hundreds of thousands from across the
Middle East and from within Canada and its other smaller markets around the world.
The number of vehicles being recalled is roughly the same as its sales for the whole of its last financial year.
Toyota said fixing the switch should take about 40 minutes.
