Toyota Australia has recalled the 2018 HiLux and Fortuner to fix a problem with the brake booster.

According to the company, “within the brake booster of involved vehicles, the strength of the resin piston could degrade due to improper moulding conditions during production”.

“If this were to occur, repeated operation of the brake pedal may cause the piston to break, potentially causing loss of braking assist and therefore increasing the vehicle stopping distance.”

  • A total of 23,957 cars are included in the recall
  • Affected vehicles were built between June and December 2018
  • The recall notice and VIN list are attached here

Toyota Australia will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealer.

The work is expected to take around three hours.
