Toyota recalls Toyota 86 sports car due to power steering fault
Toyota says the fault could occur due to an incorrectly designed wire harness layout that could cause interference with the panel lower cover which houses the driver’s knee airbag on Australian delivered Toyota 86 models.
If interference does occur, there may be electrical contact failure, resulting in the lack of power steering assistance. Toyota reassures customers the vehicle is still completely safe to drive, albeit with manual steering.
In order to rectify the issue, Toyota will replace the power steering electronic control unit and wire harness on affected vehicles.
Toyota will contact owners by post, and customers are encouraged to contact their nearest Toyota dealership to arrange a no cost repair at their earliest convenience.
